    Whelp. Here it is.



    Enjoy your nightmares.

    Edit: Yes, I should have mentioned it is the movie and not the game. I figured I'd post it here, though, rather that in the movies section, since it is Pokemon.

    That's the movie trailer, and it is amazing. :D

    Why would I get nightmares from such a fabulous trailer?

    Really? The live-action pokemon don't sit in the darkest part of the uncanny valley to you?

    Not one bit? And if you look in the Upcoming Movies thread where we're chatting about it I seem to be in the majority.

    Also, I thought uncanny valley was for things that look human but aren't quite so it looks off even if you can't say why. Not sure how that would apply to CGI monsters.

    Maybe a mod should split this so we can keep the movie discussion separate? @Xiph0 @Palindrome

    Anyway, I thought I'd hate it but I don't. The trailer is actually decent looking and did anyone see fifty mile segment of land and mountain just peel up into the sky? Either that's Groudon or some psychic Pokemon shenanigans.

    Is the typo in the thread title intentional?

    My soul is ready for trouble to be made double.

    I am enthusiastic and want it to succeed. Legendary is usually hits, WB is usually misses. So optimistic, but knowing tha the fall will hurt if it sucks.

    I have no problems with this Pikachu talking. Unlike the one from that animated movie this one has a good and solid reason to talk.

    Oddly optimistic for this. Looking forward to it.

    Ok, this actually looks great. I'll totally watch it!

    Ryan Renolds as Pikachu. What could go wrong? The Pokemon do look kinda funny, and the live action thing is just weird, but... sure. I'll watch it.

    Leaked transcript of studio board meeting:
    "Hey guys we gotta make a movie, what movies do people like?"

    "Zootopia, people liked that I think. Cops who are cute animals equal money."

    "Blade Runner, rainy city street markets with neon asian signs and shit"

    "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

    "Stuff with Ryan Reynolds in, my 9 year old loves Deathpool"

    "Pokemon stuff"

    "Ok fellas good talk let's combine these things, leverage those synergies, and hope for the best."

    This one is worth watching in context of the new movie.
