    A movie done with the "Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee" game engine? No thanks

    I highly doubt they'd ever use the game graphics for any of their movies. I do believe that it will be CGI, but I also believe it'll be very pretty computer graphics similar to Final Fantasy.

    The trailer speaks for itself (it can't be that misleading). It's CGI, but it isn't using any game engine.

    I don't understand the notion of making a movie with a video game engine. If you mean having similar graphics to the Let's Go games, that makes a bit more sense, but I don't think that they'd make a movie with the same exact graphics as the video games. Based on the teaser trailer, it seems likely that it will be done in CGI. If anything, the designs for Mew and Mewtwo in the trailer made me think of those commercials for the TCG with CGI Pokemon, but with obviously more of a budget behind it to make it look smoother.
