There is still a year to go before the Detective Pikachu, the movie based on the Nintendo 3DS videogame, hits the big screen. Meanwhile, the film's director, Rob Letterman, has advanced some details on what fans can expect from the first real action movie of the Pokémon franchise.
During the Pokémon World Championships, organized in Nashville, Letterman took the opportunity to take the stage with the young protagonists of the film adaptation Justice Smith and Kathryn Newton to anticipate what pokémon could appear in Detective Pikachu.
Letterman said that he and his artistic team have taken into account "each and every one of the Pokémon and their different evolutions" to choose the creatures that will finally be part of the film. "Not only we have focused on the favorites, we have chosen as many as we could", assured the American director.
The director has also emphasized that the Pokémon selected are those that best fit the story and more will dazzle with special effects. "We have chosen those who can best work in a real action movie," Letterman said.
