Heh, yep. I forget what the trailer is like, but they aren’t hiding what they are taking influence from at all

Dead, absolutely.

**** is a bigot of the highest order, he shouldn't be supported in any shape or form, least of all financially. "The Awful" or whatever his show is called is a collection of crude, bigoted "jokes" strung together like Family Dude and American Man. The transphobia in that one episode about the alien couple was appalling.

That anyone can even consider to compare this abomination to Trek boggles the mind.

So I loved the game, but I think I might wait until the movie comes out on DVD to watch it. (That Jigglypuff is the stuff of nightmares.)

As for the voice of Pikachu, I was really rooting for Danny DeVito, but I'm a big Ryan Reynolds fan so I'm cool with him too.

I'm so glad that I wasn't the only one who was unnerved by Jigglypuff.

Definitely weird but I came to accept it. I, like a lot of people, questioned why it was furry, but I found someone who pointed out the fact that it does at least have hair in all of its stages. Wigglytuff even explicitly has a pokedex entry mentioning its soft fur.

Yeah but at least in the anime, it isn't going towards uncanny valley territory.

Jigglypuff is about as terrifying and demonic as it always has been.

the real question is will the rodent retain his impressive facial contortion skills.

The official twitter just posted another trailer.

Among other things, we see more Pokémon, we get to see what seems to be evolution, and a certain Legendary shows up at the end.
I am so tired of the people I look up to turning out to be jerks.

You ever realize that the two longest pieces of literature in existence are both fanfics? Weird right?

I'm not particularly hyped for the movie, but I do commend everyone involved in the animation department. Even if the pokemon are slightly unsettling, they fit seamlessly into the world around them. That's even more impressive considering the amount of visual movement and stylistic lighting that is present.

Yeah and as soon as you get past the uncanniness of it all, it does feel like it fits nicely.
