As a 44-year-old man, I am not exactly what you would call Pokemon’s target demographic. Then again, the original game did come out when I was a lot younger, 20 years ago, and I enjoyed it very much at the time. So while I’m not really up to date on any and all things Pocket Monster, I can still appreciate its concepts on the level of an old Game Boy RPG.
That said, I was actually looking forward to seeing the Detective Pikachu movie as soon as I saw the trailer. A somewhat more adult take on Pokemon looked like a lot of fun!
