Will it ever actually get made and hit the big screen? Who knows. But a deal has at least been made, with Legendary Pictures and Nintendo agreeing to make a live-action Pokemon movie. Variety reports that the movie is scheduled to begin production in late 2017.
Now, get this: The movie isn't a straight Pokemon flick.
It's a Detective Pikachu movie.
What a world we live in.
(Note that, if you pretend this game trailer is the movie trailer, it 100 per cent works)
