I personally feel he could make a pretty alright movie
The thing is that Pokémon has already integrated the changing of their cast slowly for a long time.Changing your cast regularly also can give an opportunity for your show to have bad spots. Like Digimon Frontier
But it also gives opportunity for particularly good spots, like Tamers.
Also, I know Pokemon regularly changes the secondary characters, but the perpetually plucky ten year old can only be interesting for so many seasons.
Don't forget every season they reset. He could have a Pokémon die right in front of him in one season and then the next season he's the same kid. At least have your one protagonist grow a little.
That would be great, if Ash ever grew.
-I'm glad that it is set in the Pokemon universe and not doing "a fictional character in a real world" thing (unlike another upcoming video game movie) -Every scene with Pikachu brings eternal joy to the world -Interesting design choise with making them look more "realistic" (can we get a plushie of Pikachu with this face please)
I was never a Pokemon fan, but this is pretty mind blowing even for me.
The visuals are nice. Not sure how the movies gonna be
For some reason that even I don’t know, I hate that Mewtwo is in this movie.
