Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Plot hole: While in the battle arena the vials with the purple R substance in them become broken, letting the gas out. All so the Pokémon seem to go crazy from it but Pikachu doesn't.

Suggested correction: R gas made Pokémon crazed so human minds could be transferred to them. At that point, Pikachu already had a human mind inside him.

Other mistake: The Psyduck is technically incapable of defending the group against the Quajutsus. Regardless of which psychic attack Psyduck uses, Quajutsu is immune to it because of its typing (water/dark).

Other mistake: At the beginning, when Tim arrives in Ryme City, a Sneasel is visible with its ears on the wrong sides.

Detective Pikachu: Maybe she can tell us about the long-term psychological effects of being strapped to a baby seat... next to a bomb!

More quotes from Pokémon Detective Pikachu

Trivia: There's a reference to the artificially-created Pokemon Mewtwo having escaped "twenty years ago." This is a bit of an inside joke, as the film was in production exactly twenty years after the release of the animated movie "Mewtwo Strikes Back," and that film deals with what happens after Mewtwo was created and escaped captivity.
