While I certainly enjoyed the film, I wish the storytellers had focused more on character development. I wish I knew more about the antagonist’s motivations.
Detective Pikachu definitely carried the film. His antics and one-liners gave a great reason to keep me interested.
I loved seeing my favorite Pokémon brought to life, whether they were featured or only cameos. Sometimes I felt like the Pokémon color schemes clashed with the real world, however this is only a minor gripe.
