Detective Pikachu Trailer Out, Pokemon Fans Divided

When it comes to live-action renditions of just about anything animated, there is bound to be some controversy. Thus, it comes as to no surprise that there is some division over the live-action version of Pokemon--especially since it's a massively popular franchise with a history that dates back over two decades.

Upon release, fans of the long-running franchise have either one of two reactions; absolute adoration over how cute Pikachu looks, or how the live-action versions of iconic Pokemon characters are "a textured mess".

The majority of the dissatisfaction, however, lies not with Pikachu's appearance, but with the pink balloon Pokemon, Jigglypuff's looks.

Of course, this is the Internet, so in the midst of the adoration and hate, there is a group of those who are poking fun at the movie.

Needless to say, these jokes have proven to be quite entertaining to follow.

What about you, though? What do you think? Do you love or hate the realistic look that these Pokemon characters have been given?

Let us know in the Comments below!
