True Detective Pikachu Sounds Just as Hilariously Weird as You Think It Does in Fan-Made Trailer
Look, I know in True Detective that there is a Yellow King, but I don't think that they meant to take it LITERALLY with a Pokemon.
In just a few weeks, Pokemon fans around the world will finally get the live-action movie they’ve been waiting for with Detective Pikachu, and from the past trailers released, it actually looks impressively well-made. However, while Detective Pikachu seems to be defying expectations as a legitimately great-looking Pokemon movie, what fans may not have expected is to see a slightly…”darker” take on the material in the vein of True Detective.
A new fan-made trailer has been making the rounds on YouTube in the form of “True Detective Pikachu” which, as the title suggests, mashes up the world of Pokemon with the HBO series True Detective, with the trailer specifically parodying the first season of the show that starred MatthewMcConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
If the title seems hilariously weird and dark to you, then you won’t be disappointed with the full video…though I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get over how creepy that a humanoid Pikachu looks like.
Other than that, the video, which comes from the YouTube channel Sam & Bill Comedy, is a refreshingly tongue-in-cheek mash-up that includes plenty of references for Pokemon fans to enjoy while also delivering it in the dramatic tone that True Detective has been known for. Don’t worry, it includes plenty of existentialist monologues and noir mysteries to watch.
For a closer look at “True Detective Pikachu” — or if you just don’t want to sleep tonight knowing what a realistic take on Pikachu looks like — you can watch the full fan-made video below:
