    I swear, someone at Nintendo saw Guardians of the Galaxy and said "you know what we need? A Pokemon version of Rocket!" And then they laughed, had a drink, did river dancing on the table, and then passed out laughing.

    I think it's weird. Just like the Pikachu talking in the latest movie. Weird. I just hope they have an option to turn it off so all gameplay isn't affected if someone doesn't want that.

    If someone doesn't want a talking Pikachu, it's pretty clear Detective Pikachu isn't a game for them.

    I was momentarily stunned watching a Pikachu talking during the trailer. It wasn't so much the fact that he was talking that bothered me per se, more that the voice actor doesn't seem to quite match a Pikachu. I'm sure it will pass in time though, as I did chuckle at that quick attack bit.

    I think we will better be able to answer this after playing the game. Right now it seems... kinda weird but I'm into it. I mean if meowth can talk why can't a pikachu talk, and solve crimes too apparently :hilarious:

    Pikachu talking is always going to seem weird/ be weird. It wasn't as weird as I thought it would be as odd as that sounds. I sort of like the voice as it doesn't look like the voice a pikachu would have. This fact makes me very interested in the game.

    Rats are too dumb to talk. Not even lab rats. Not even experimented on electric rats, but whatever it's Game Freak and they can do whatever they want. If the voice is British or sounds like catbug then I'm okay with it. Here's a sample:

    In case you're wondering, Detective Pikachu will be voiced by Ryan Reynolds, who did the voice of Deadpool. So, Catbug? Nope. :cool-pika:

    AFAIK that only applies to the movie adaption that's coming out in 2019. Not sure if Ryan Reynolds will be voicing Detective Pikachu in the game though.

    Lmao I like it in a weird way. It sounds and looks weird but it's defs amusing. Dunno if the game is for me because I haven't seen much gameplay but I like talking Pikachu.
