For years, fans of the beloved Pokémon franchise have been delighted by the adorable and charismatic creatures that inhabit this world. However, one problem that has persisted throughout the franchise is the limited communication between humans and their Pokémon companions.

In previous franchise iterations, all people heard from their Pokémon was a series of characteristic sounds like "pika-pika-pika," making it difficult to establish a real connection between the characters. All of that changed with the release of "Pokémon Detective Pikachu," the first movie that introduced a talking and well-spoken Pokémon, Pikachu.

In this movie, not only is Pikachu's speech clear to the main character, but it's also audible to the audience. This development has allowed for a deeper emotional connection between the audience and the characters, providing more opportunities for comedic moments and character development.

Read these 39 Pikachu quotes as he breaks his silence and engages in witty banter with his human partner.

For the first time in a live-action Pokémon movie where Ryan Reynolds voiced Pikachu and acted alongside Rita Ora, Justice Smith, and others, the beloved creatures take center stage as the main attraction.

In previous films, the trainers were the main characters, with their Pokémon serving as tools to help them achieve their goals. While this approach made the movies relatable and allowed for complex storytelling, it ultimately marginalized the unique elements that make Pokémon so special.

With "Pokémon Detective Pikachu," the focus is squarely on the Pokémon themselves. They are not just cute and cuddly weapons but fully-realized characters with distinct personalities and emotions. This makes way for a greater emotional connection between the characters and opens up new possibilities for storytelling. Read these Yusuke Urameshi quotes, another beloved detective.
