What could the Netflix Pokemon Be About?

If you’ve been a Netflix subscriber long enough, you’ll know all about the streaming service’s taste for gritty, gripping shows. Fans should definitely prepare to leave behind the heartwarming world of kawaii Pokemon and prepare for something darker and different from anything that has come before.

the Pokemon anime has always been a kids show with a vanilla and happily ever after formula and Detective Pikachu also played by these rules. Netflix is ​​unlikely to want to recycle old themes featured in the anime, and it will also want to part ways with Detective Pikachu if it is indeed an independent project. Therefore, we might be about to embark on a more down-to-earth adaptation, exploring how Pokémon survive in the real world and how their trainers interact with them.
