Personally, I'm cautiously optimistic about this since Detective Pikachu was actually a great adaptation. I still think the best way to handle the first live action pokemon series is to make it a 2-3 season show based on Gen 1 (then make sequel shows based on each generation). The Gen 1 games already feel like a Spielberg movie if you look at them when the franchise first started, and there are shows to look at for reference like His Dark Materials or Stranger Things, though I also hope they use the Adventures manga too.
It also depends on how good of a director Joe Henderson is and the quality of work his previous productions were, though I haven't seen any of them
I feel like a live adaptation of the anime is doomed to fail from the start. The only way I can see this series working is if it's either based on the mainline games, one of the side games like Colosseum or Mystery Dungeon, the Adventures manga, or it's its own thingIf (and big if) this is going to be a live action adaption of the anime, then I have mixed feelings. Like I'd be excited and just watch it to see what Ash and the other characters and Pokémon will look like in a live action movie (will probably be based on the original series). Some people like Ash, Misty, and Gary, Professor Oak and maaaybe Brock I can see as live action. Not too sure about Team Rocket lol.
Then again, I don't think I'd want to see a live action adaption because I'm so used to the characters in the anime with how they look and all that. Plus you know how it is with these live action adaptions. Either they're really good or just no.
Detective Pikachu 2 sounds more probable though.

There's no guarantee that she'll be in this series because so far they haven't told us if it'll be a live action version of the main cartoon or not.What does this ew man have to do with pokemon???? Dont touch it !!!! I dont want to see a slutty Misty:/
They haven't announced any actors. Joe Henderson the writer and executive producer. While I've never watched Lucifer, the main thing he's known for, I have heard it's good. And what makes you think he's "shameless"?Only an actual Pokemon fan should make this kind of series. What does this shameless actor have to do with Pokemon?
Pokemon is pure and love. Dont ruin it
Same here. I have no faith until proven otherwiseMy only fear is this turning out to be a gritty and edgy mess that so many Live Action Adaptations end up becoming (Avatar, The Powerpuff Girls, Winx Club, etc)
