We were rather fond of Detective Pikachu on Nintendo 3DS, so much so that we said we'd like to see certain traits of the game be brought forward as standards for the series in our review. The video elaborates on the huge undertaking Reynolds underwent to fully immerse himself in the role of Pikachu, going so far as "forgetting" his wife and children, attempting to drop an unhealthy amount of weight, and even living low to the ground.
