Pokémon creatures!!!

This week, the topic is Detective Pikachu! We share our queerpinions on:

  • Our introductions into the world of Pokémon.
  • Whether or not Mewtwo was represented as the thicc legend they are.
  • Pokémon as fateful representations of our trauma.
  • The movie’s troubling politics surrounding people who use wheelchairs.
  • Tuning out Ryan Reynolds’ voice while tearing up in awe of real Pokémon on screen!

Content warning: We’re a fairly NSFW podcast and this episode includes use of reclaimed homophobic slurs. As with our Naruto episode, this podcast is full of spoilers!
