In a recent post, someone edited the classic Pokemon theme song over the trailer of the upcoming Pokemon Detective Pikachu film.
The trailer in question is something of a hacked together mess. The video in question was made by YouTubeM4L Animations and published earlier this month. It shows the main character of the film, (Justice Smith), first meeting Pikachu, (Ryan Reynolds), before two realize that he can understand the Pokemon. The trailer then cuts to various clips from the trailer as the iconic Pokemon theme song, Gotta Catch ‘Em All, plays over the footage. It does not, however, include any of the film’s story points. It then ends with Pikachu talking to the people on the street with him commenting that they cannot understand him.
You can see the full video below:
From the look of things, this one YouTuber really wanted to see the song in the trailer.
