Jigglypuff

Pokémon Detective Pikachu has had a pretty stellar launch, enjoying the biggest opening weekend for any video game movie ever, so can we already start dreaming of a sequel? We're not sure, but let's do it anyway.

To be fair, we're not the only ones already imagining a second exploration of Ryme City; Screen Rant recently sat down with two of the film's writers, Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit, asking that very question. While they could have gone for an epic Mewtwo backstory film, or even a live action version of the anime, Hernandez opted for an American Idol-style flick featuring the singing career of Jigglypuff and now we can't think of anything else.

Hernandez acknowledged "the severe problem of [Jigglypuff] putting everyone to sleep", which would no doubt cause several issues in the scriptwriting process, but he seems up for the challenge nonetheless. He said, "We love Jigglypuff. I like the weird Pokémon that really want something, and just by their nature, Jigglypuff can never achieve that." Screen Rant notes that he eventually dubbed his imaginary masterpiece Jigglypuff: A Star Is Born. We can see it now.

Something tells us the idea won't actually catch on, but perhaps we will see a sequel in some form. If that was to happen, what would you like to see? Let us know down below.
