    Seriously? I can't wait for the realization after they buy this property and are like "Ok, so what is Pokémon about?" It's about a ten year old that wanders out into the wilderness to force monsters to fight in one on one battles and collect badges for reasons and then they all hang themselves because it's impossible to translate that into a film that wouldn't be long, repetitive, boring, and just generally stupid. Don't get me wrong I love Pokémon. It's probably one of the most brilliant video games of all time, but it's also one of the dumbest plots anyone has ever thought of. There is a reason they market the game to ten year olds. Cause 10 year olds are fuckin stupid.

    While The Mountain as Pikachu would be cool, I thought we were all unison about this. We need Danny DeVito as Pikachu!

    Honestly, if they want to be successful with this, I think their best bet would be to do a live action version of the first movie, with some updated Pokemon. Especially with the story of Pokken being short, they could tie it together. Chances are it won't be anything like that, but I can dream.

    Anime and Video Game live actions won't be bad forever. It'll just take one good movie (possibly Alita) to break the theme, and then we'll be flooded like with the comic movies.
    I figure companies are buying out rights to them just to hold onto until the day the stigma is broken and public opinion becomes actually excited for them.

    Sounds good it's not like creating a live action movie from an anime has been a complete failure time and time again. what's that the Attack on Titan movie sucked, that was just a one off. I'm sorry what the Avatar: the Last Airbender movie was crap and ruined childhoods, not every movie is going to be good. What the Dragon ball Z movies were all bad and Dragon Ball Z Evolution is considered on the worst movies ever.... Shut Up

    Can't argue with that casting. Brock Lesnar as Brock? the man was born for that role

    For the love of god no. Pokemon doesn't need to be live action. The Warcraft movie doesn't need to be live action. Not everything needs to be live action to be good, this is part of the reason so few video game movies to well.

    Nah, but I think a Pokemon Live Action has the possibility to be amazing, and also the possibility to be really terrible. Pokemon has a good track record with their various forms of media, though, so I hope Nintendo doesn't disappoint this time!
