Since 1996, when Pokémon debuted, I have not once wondered whether or not a Pikachu can fart. Then I watched the latest Detective Pikachu trailer.
The film is the first live-action Hollywood adaptation of the world of Pokémon, fart jokes and all. Is this movie canon?

I’m not anti-fart joke! Not at all.
This trailer ain’t George Carlin, sure, but at least we now know Pokémon can fart. I guess!
I'm really excited for Detective Pikachu, and nothing about that has changed, but I have to ask... does every movie with talking animals need a fart joke forced in? We could really do without that. Also that's what you wanna show in your TV Commercial? Pikachu fart joking? Yeesh https://t.co/RKRu1RgQAC
