I saw Detective Pikachu and I really liked it! Gonna be honest, the game is better in my opinion. But there were also a lot of differences. Some of the differences frustrated me, while others made me excited~
Alright, you know me. I post spoilers about stuff so if you don't want to know anything about the game or movie, don't read past this point.

In the game: Tim loved his father and I'm pretty sure his mother was alive. His dad was busy with work but Tim knew that and understood. He loved Pokémon and detective work intrigued him. Harry's "death" was referred to as a disappearance the whole time because they figured if Pikachu was alive, so was Harry. By "they," I mean everyone at the agency. Another thing I want to point out is they REALLY emphasized Pikachu not liking coffee in the past. The player is led to assume the two merged, but it never outright says that. Oh, and there is no other Pokémon merging besides Harry and Pikachu ✌🏻
In the movie, however, all of that is different. Tim feels anger towards his father, feeling that he loves Pokémon more than his own son. This causes Tim to hate Pokémon. People assume he's a loner due to the lack of a partner Pokémon. The overall plot is the same - saving a town at a parade from Pokémon who were exposed to R, a serum that makes them go feral. But in the movie, the lab is considered bad, while in the game there's just ONE bad seed. The Torterra garden was cool!! I REALLY liked that. Oh, and Mewtwo being in the movie was a GREAT difference (fuck anyone who calls him an abomination). Lastly, there is just one female reporter instead of two. I'm pretty sure she's a new character all together though?? I liked her. I'm not about to compare three different women characters; I like the game reporters and the movie reporter. The last thing I want to say is the Pokémon in the movie looked better than I thought. I went in hating the idea of this movie, but I actually liked it 💕 They had SO MANY DIFFERENT POKÉMON! Pangoro ^^
