Today, we saw the first trailer for Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo, and the world saw a Pikachu speak with the hardened voice of a caffeinated street cop. The world was not prepared for this.
It was a voice hardened by a life of danger and a thousand sips of whiskey. It was a voice so full of grit that the internet spontaneously spawned a Hardboiled Pikachu Tumblr account dedicated to sharing the isms and stories of a seasoned Pikachu PI.
The shakedowns, the dark alleys, the truth – this is the real world of Pokemon, the dirt they didn’t want you to know.
You can read even more of Hardboiled life over on the ever-growing Tumblr page.
