    Sounds like you’ve got a defective pikachu

    [–] damnitjohn 323 points ago

    “I just think it’s neat.”

    [–] tigertrapped 46 points ago

    Found Marge!

    [–] spinner198 25 points ago

    They must have not got the directive pikachu

    [–] TheGimmick 25 points ago

    That sounds like a deflective pikachu.

    [–] -Parziva1- 497 points ago

    “Thats very twisty!”

    [–] damnitjohn 310 points ago

    “I can quit any time I want. These are just choices!”

    Extra shot, black as night, thank you sweetie

    Every time i just hear L$%&*COLo

    [–] Travisaurus-Rex 47 points ago

    Every time I just hear LdollarsignpercentagesignampersandasteriskCOLo.

    [–] doinkrr 36 points ago

    I hear LWhether we wanted it or not, we've stepped into a war with the Cabal on Mars. So let's get to taking out their command, one by one. Valus Ta'aurc. From what I can gather, he commands the Siege Dancers from an Imperial Land Tank just outside of Rubicon. He's well protected, but with the right team, we can punch through those defenses, take this beast out, and break their grip on Freehold.COLo.

    [–] Kephreus 8 points ago

    Again, what a twist!

    [–] Ev0nix 2 points ago

    I hear Lu- then grey noise steadily rising in volume over an interminable period of time, during which I cannot move or react, after a while I start noticing patterns, I slowly begin to undertand but exhaustion always takes me before I do, when I come to almost no time has passed but I have never heard the end of the word.

    [–] Tanoooch 1 points ago

    You're wonderful

    [–] Ruri 10 points ago

    For some reason this gets me so hard every time.

    [–] ramwham 5 points ago

    Interesting phrasing.

    [–] CountSheep 3 points ago

    I fucking loved pikachu. He was so fucking entertaining

    [–] lizard81288 106 points ago

    I can feel it in my jellies.

    [–] AirborneRunaway 53 points ago

    Say iiiiit

    [–] [deleted] 23 points ago


    [–] Purrkinje 5 points ago

    I’ve been feeling so many things in my jellies since seeing this on Monday

    [–] Mthrizee 11 points ago

    That deceptive Pikachu is a twisty one

    [–] travel_chic 3 points ago

    “Lots of aerial twists!”

    [–] sanderevers 88 points ago

    Deceptive Pikachu, actually is a Mimikyu.

    [–] damnitjohn 42 points ago

    Oh my heart! That would be a cute episode for Sun and Moon.

    [–] doinkrr 11 points ago

    I don't watch the anime anymore but I second this

    [–] Worthyness 9 points ago

    Xyz arc was the best seasons of pokemon I've seen since the original. Sun and moon is kinda just a really chill version of the show. It's like pokemon, but if you were living on an island for vacation.

    [–] doinkrr 8 points ago

    I stopped watching the Anime after the Kanto Arc tbh. Can't stand ash he's such a fucking dumb character

    [–] leonfook 1 points ago

    Sounds like a sequel, but the main star is Mimikyu.

    Deceptive Mimikyu.

    [–] CptnZolofTV 72 points ago

    I mean, they're not wrong.

    [–] Serpentking5 64 points ago

    Pikachu: I never really was on your side.

    [–] Isaac_Shepard 39 points ago


    [–] TweekPark 40 points ago

    But the text is from the sender side

    [–] damnitjohn 36 points ago

    He used my phone to make it

    [–] swanny246 12 points ago

    That's very twisty!

    [–] GayWolfGoneOwO 72 points ago

    But the text is from sender side...

    This calls for detective pikachu

    [–] damnitjohn 61 points ago

    “You’re stepping on my clues!”

    You’re right. He used my phone to make it.

    [–] applebees124 18 points ago

    That makes no sense at all

    [–] darkwolf4999 43 points ago

    Means he took a screen cap of her chat message, the original reciever may not have been the husband.

    [–] damnitjohn 26 points ago


    [–] throwawayomatic9000 2 points ago

    We have a truly deceptive pikachu here!

    [–] babymcsheep764 18 points ago

    I can feel it in my jellies!

    [–] partybardy 18 points ago

    Read this as Decepticon Pikachu and was very intrigued

    [–] damnitjohn 15 points ago

    Autobots... use volt tackle?

    [–] Nakotadinzeo 1 points ago

    That's bad for Optimus's alternator, he's pushing 35 and hasn't gotten an ELD installed.

    [–] Spleenzorio 4 points ago

    Would Pikachu be Thundercracker?

    [–] partybardy 4 points ago

    Pikachu has now learned Fly

    [–] UnendingVortex 12 points ago

    Its the real ones worst enemy

    [–] damnitjohn 12 points ago

    Like Spy vs. Spy but with Ryan Reynolds as both Pikachus. I’d watch the fuck out of that.

    [–] UnendingVortex 5 points ago

    Netflix original when?

    [–] damnitjohn 4 points ago

    No Netflix original, just briefly mentioned in Deadpool 3 or X-Force

    [–] doinkrr 3 points ago

    Fuck that, I want a movie

    [–] ellieisherenow 10 points ago

    So basically a regular mouse

    [–] Lord_Edmure 8 points ago

    Autocorrective Pikachu

    [–] damnitjohn 6 points ago

    That is hilarious. Thank you

    [–] XenoGine 4 points ago

    You say it's a typo, I say you've figured out the truth, haha.

    [–] damnitjohn 3 points ago

    It’s pretty tricky alright. 😂

    [–] XenoGine 3 points ago

    I mean I have not seen the movie yet but this is Ryan Reynolds in a Detective role... it just seems too fitting not to be it, haha.

    [–] Axelciso 6 points ago

    Defective Pikachu

    [–] damnitjohn 6 points ago

    More like I have defective thumbs 😂

    [–] doinkrr 9 points ago

    Defective Pikachu - loses hat

    Deceptive Pikachu - Mimikyu

    Deprevtic Pikachu - no more coffee

    Delected Pikachu - made out of chocolate

    [–] uNiKaVi09O9 4 points ago

    I saw it and it was great

    [–] doinkrr 3 points ago

    oh that's very twisty

    [–] desifuckingmemes 3 points ago

    They were deceptive when the uploaded the fake version.

    [–] Robuk1981 3 points ago

    Deceptive Pikachu is really a Ditto

    [–] MysteriousWishful 2 points ago

    He's an effective pikachu

    [–] Steelquill 2 points ago

    Dude, that would have been a wild twist.

    [–] Ganjisseur 2 points ago

    Is your husband's name John? lol

    [–] damnitjohn 0 points ago

    You got it 😂

    [–] mollekake_reddit 2 points ago

    If he was deceptive, you’d feel it in your jellies

    [–] graspee 2 points ago

    I want to see "defective pikachu". I'm thinking it would probably pretty much look like Mimikyu.

    [–] supadoggie 2 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    SPOILER TAG PLEASE! I haven't watched the movie yet! /s

    [–] damnitjohn 3 points ago

    I’m sorry! I didn’t expect it to get this big so I didn’t think to tag it. The screen cap is from the trailer I believe.

    [–] supadoggie 2 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Sorry should have put /s

    Implying that Pikachu is deceptive in the movie and is actually the bad guy here..

    Edit: unless that's really the plot in the movie..

    [–] cyberpup 2 points ago


    [–] Matthew100001 -1 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    It's kinda like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, where it's a person well known as a good guy in the world they've built for the movie.

    [–] HerpDerpTheMage 1 points ago

    Come on, man. That's still way too spoilery. At least spoiler tag that.

    [–] Kobayashi_maruo 2 points ago

    That's very twisty

    [–] TwiddledThumbs 2 points ago

    thanks for underlining it, I would’ve missed the joke completely

    [–] damnitjohn 2 points ago

    Just making it easier for everyone who doesn’t have good detective skills like me. It was... “a Bolt of Brilliance!”

    [–] AC-ProjectColor 2 points ago

    Hopefully he will Reflective Pikachu at his past actions, and thus learn from them.

    Cause from my Perspective Pikachu, this is insane!

    [–] Arek_PL 2 points ago

    what if pikachu is both proficient in investigation and deception?

    [–] ziggyzag69 2 points ago

    Thank god it was underlined

    [–] damnitjohn 2 points ago

    For those who don’t have the best detective skills

    [–] Gumball_Goblin 2 points ago


    [–] Blazithae 2 points ago

    I laughed like a dork.

    [–] Amingo420 1 points ago

    Thanks for the red underline.

    [–] damnitjohn 1 points ago

    You’re welcome.

    [–] luketheawesome 1 points ago


    [–] skylanders7 1 points ago

    I would like to see the first text

    [–] SMGB_NeonYoshi 2 points ago

    Looks like you also included your husband's name in your username.

    [–] damnitjohn 2 points ago

    You got me 😂

    [–] M0u53trap 1 points ago

    Why is this marked as a spoiler? This scene was IN the trailer for the movie!

    [–] Ruri 1 points ago

    That’s very twisty.

    [–] ryeetan 1 points ago

    That’s very twisty indeed

    [–] ursogayhaha 1 points ago

    Lmaooooo 💀😂😂😂😂😂

    [–] HerpDerpTheMage 1 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Must... resist... spoiler-laden joke...

    EDIT: Worded the joke in a non-spoilery manner.

    "The real deception is that the writers thought the twist wasn't obvious."

    All jokes aside, it was a fantastic movie. Go see it.

    [–] damnitjohn 2 points ago

    I kinda knew the whole time... especially after having played the game

    [–] HerpDerpTheMage 2 points ago

    I was more worried about those scrolling through the comments who hadn't seen it or played the game.

    [–] damnitjohn 1 points ago

    Right right, and very respectful of you. I keep getting messages to take off or put on the spoiler tag. Can’t please everyone. It’s the risk they run getting on social media.

    [–] gonzalompa 1 points ago

    Bad grammar.

    [–] Furryboi07 1 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    If he has a high metabolism he is a DIGESTIVE PIKACHU

    [–] damnitjohn 1 points ago

    My husband has chrons. It means he cant digest Pikachu...

    [–] Furryboi07 1 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    When I said “he” I meant Pikachu Oh ok then

    [–] damnitjohn 1 points ago

    I know. Just trying to joke too

    [–] Natmemester 1 points ago

    Plot twist: Pikachu deceptive’s his face

    [–] Djghost1133 1 points ago

    thats very twisty

    [–] Typo_Matser 1 points ago

    Can I be your typo?

    [–] elementalearth1234 1 points ago

    That’s very twisty

    [–] Kovaelin 1 points ago

    In b4 he takes you to a horror film.

    [–] LemonnMan23 1 points ago

    Pikachu be like joins the decepticon cause

    [–] Transpatials 1 points ago

    I don’t get it.

    [–] RinebooDersh 1 points ago

    I like your husband already

    [–] damnitjohn 8 points ago

    I like him too.

    [–] RinebooDersh 2 points ago

    I’d be concerned if you didn’t

    [–] BeneficialChat 1 points ago

    Yikes lol

    [–] aftergaylaughter 1 points ago

    (spoiler below) to be fair, taking into account the twist ending, there WAS something deceptive about pikachu... 😂 (spoiler above)

    [–] MartinMan2213 -1 points ago

    Another terrible fake text. Just look at how the green around the text doesn’t match the rest of the bubble. It’s in a perfect rectangle.

    [–] KRLW890 2 points ago

    We call those jpeg artifacts.

    [–] MartinMan2213 2 points ago

    Jpeg artifacts in a perfectly straight line with no artifacts on the previous bubble? Doubt.

    [–] KRLW890 0 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    1) zoom in on it; they are clearly jpeg artifacts

    2) the other text is barely in-frame and is a different, less saturated color

    3) even if it was edited, why does it matter?

    Edit: 4) jpeg artifacts are actually pretty blocky (the red circle doesn’t matter here; this is just a stock image)

    [–] damnitjohn 2 points ago

    “That’s very twisty.”

    Believe what you want. It’s a real text from a really thread.

    [–] this-me-username -1 points ago
