There were many Pokemon in the first Hollywood live adaptation of the universe in Detective Pikachu that attempted to "steal the show". Pikachu of course was our titular character who wasn't just voiced by Ryan Reynolds, but also had the most screen time of any of the pocket monsters. Psyduck's patented confusion made for a quick win with audiences as he wandered around clueless during his run time. Though perhaps no Pokemon was as well received as the bizarre Mr. Mime, who will be getting special features on the Blu-Ray/DVD release highlighting his "antics".
Pokemon resource Serebii.net posted the news regarding the Mime features from the upcoming release, breaking down that fans can expect to see a special "Mr. Mime commentary" during the film itself:
Serebii Update: Further details on the Detective Pikachu's retail release have been released. US retail versions come with Pokémon TCG Promo card.— Serebii.net (@SerebiiNet) July 5, 2019
Special features also have been announced including Mr. Mime Audio Commentary. Full details @ https://t.co/gDbXkHSvkT pic.twitter.com/mxAvcOzYTY
Of course, fans of the clown-like Pokemon will know this is hilarious due to his constant silence meaning you just will be watching a regular version of the film. Mime himself was a staple in the film, creating one of the most iconic scenes from the movie with Detective Pikachu and Tim Goodman attempting to interrogate the jokester to no avail.
Mr. Mime has always been a creepy, albeit steadfast creature in the Pokemon Universe. In the anime series, Mime hangs out a lot with Ash Ketchum's mother, with some fans even spreading the rumor that this impish creature may in fact be Ketchum's father! While there is no confirmation on this, the implications of this reveal would certainly be something that would shake the structure of the Pokemon series to its core.
