Earlier in the week we posted an article about the strange voice of Pikachu in the upcoming Pokémon game, Great Detective Pikachu: The Birth of a New Duo. In that article I made jokes about how the western voice actor will probably need to sound equally as gruff as the Japanese counterpart. Well, it turns out I wasn’t the only one hoping for something weird.
A movement has sprung up online calling for the great Danny Devito to voice Pikachu. You may know Danny Devito from his acclaimed film acting roles… or as the degenerate Frank Reynolds in It’s Always Sunny. A fan made video has been doing the rounds today showing the wonders of a Pikachu voiced by Danny Devito, and it’s everything you could possibly hope for.
Well… now that’s all I want in life. Imagine the possibilities of a rum ham filled Pokémon game.
