Because Mario is more GA friendly and less isolating to people that aren't garcore fans of the franchise as was the case with Pokemon. It failed to get anyone outside of the fanbase to watch.

LOL you're acting as if Pikachu was a flop. Highest grossing film of WB so far this year. And highest grossing family film since the first Lego Movie back in 2014. It far from flopped.

Actually it is a doing quite decent, only if people are not hyped by the viral marketing campaign initially.

 

Somehow this movie come out earlier in home media than EG despite release 3 weeks after EG

EG had a re-release that's why it's coming out before EG. The story of Pikachu would have been so much different if EG did not become what it did but it did and Pika was still able to do quite well.

 

Sequel won't have to deal with an EG scenario.

Not so. EG has the same theatrical window before home media release as IW. IW had digital out on July 31st, 2018 with DVD/Blu-Ray on August 14th, 2018, similarly to EG’s on July 30th, 2019 and August 13th, 2019. It’s pretty standard for most Disney movies. So the re-expansion has nothing to do with Pika: DP being out on home media before EG.

No one is saying it’s a flop. People are saying it underperformed.

I will add this: DP's problems were definitely not with any digital fur technology as they nailed the CGI of the Pokemon. Amazing how these fictional animals looked great AND expressive.

You know what? Me too.

 

But you didn't grow up with Pokemon, did you?

I did not, still liked it a lot.  I did grow up on video games, Sega kid though.

Seems like just yesterday that people thought Pikachu would be a threat to Endgame.

Well hey, if Pika tripled and Endgame was cut in half, Pika would only be behind 100M or so :ph34r:
