If you remember, there was a petition floating around to get Danny DeVito to voice Detective Pikachu in Nintendo’s imported tweak on the classic Pokemon character. Some of us even made pretty good cases for why Frank Reynolds/DeVito would make the perfect candidate for the voice.
It was a fairly popular petition, but like most petitions, it turns out to be worthless. A fan asked the Always Sunny star about the project at the cast’s recent session at the Paley Center and he gave a very direct and memorable answer:
At an event in LA yesterday, DeVito was asked if he was aware of fans wanting him to voice Detective Pikachu to which he responded, “No. I don’t know what you’re talking about” before asking his fellow It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia cast members, “What the f*ck is Pokémon?”
