Overview:

What does it take to adapt a cartoon-slash-game franchise of over two decades old into the big screen? First, an overly successful location-based game that took the world by storm in 2016, which have spawned weird stories across the world. Remember the truck driver that stopped at the middle of the highway to ‘catch a Pikachu’? And perhaps, Ryan Reynolds’ iconic voice and rising credibility as a star who can make magic happen with his unstoppable mouth, as seen recently on Deadpool 2.
