“I know a lot of people might think it’s out of the ordinary for Pikachu to speak English,” said Kate Bristol, Pikachu’s English voice actor told The Guardian. “It’s definitely out of the ordinary.”

The unusual scene has been interpreted as a dream sequence or hallucination of protagonist Ash Ketchum, said The Guardian report.

Meanwhile, SoraNews24 reports that the scene had been emotionally powerful for the Japanese audience. The movie premiered on July in Japan. Japanese moviegoers found the scene to be the emotional climax of the film. JB
