Last year, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu star Justice Smith revealed that a sequel to the film probably won't be happening. The big screen take on the Pokemon franchise was well-received by most fans, and it also performed fairly well at the box office. Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of people are just now finding out about Justice Smith's comments, and are disappointed by the fact that Ryme City won't be appearing in theaters again. This resulted in the film trending on Twitter, as many fans expressed their hopes that a sequel might still happen.
Following Pokemon: Detective Pikachu's success at the box office, The Pokemon Company revealed that a sequel to the original 3DS game was in development for Nintendo Switch. There has been no information on that game since the initial announcement, leading many to believe that might not be happening, either. It seems that fans of Detective Pikachu just can't catch a break!

Detective pikachu 2 being canceled is the worst news I've heard all day I hate 2022 I can't wait for ir to be over— 👹S I G👹 (@siguiasdfghjj) January 4, 2022
There were a lot more Pokemon they could have introduced!
The detective pikachu 2 movie getting canceled is such a travesty they could have explored so much more of the world and i wanted to see more 3d pokemon 😭😭😭I WANTED TO SEE SERPERIOR— Milk 🌙 (@Milkiyoh) January 4, 2022
The movie did have a satisfying conclusion.
Detective Pikachu 2 being scrapped doesn't shock me. Original ended without need of a new movie being made. Can't build off a perfect ending, but it would have still been cool.— Cornofium (@Cornofium) January 4, 2022
Maybe the game will still happen!
saw Detective Pikachu trending marked video games, got excited, saw "can't believe they scrapped DP2" and got upset but it's about the movie, not the game
