Remembering Danny DeVito Doesn't Know What Detective Pikachu and Pokemon Are

The Detective Pikachu movie trailer has people going crazy for bringing Pokemon into live-action setting. It's a weird choice for a Pokemon film and even stranger that Ryan Reynolds is voicing the cute electric yellow mouse.

Back in 2016, the internet thought it would be great if Detective Pikachu had the voice of Danny DeVito for the video game. I attended a Paly Center event for It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia around that time and I asked DeVito if he would be voicing the pocket monster.

Listen to the audio below for Danny DeVito's reaction.
Confused he asked, "What the f*ck is Pokemon?" The audience and myself then laughed like crazy.
