Detective Pikachu spoilers, but I keep it vague 

The Big Twist at the end was Super Obvious to me from the moment I heard about the concept of the game, (though apparently the game doesn't even resolve that part of the story) and would have been obvious to me from about ten minutes into the film, too.

Was it obvious to anyone else?

Detective Pikachu, HARD SPOILERS 

All I knew was it's about a kid whose detective dad had gone missing/died, who then met a talking detective Pikachu, the only talking PokΓ©mon in the whole thing.

It seemed obvious to me that the dad would turn out to be the Pikachu we met along the way.

@Alexis I haven't seen the movie or played the game and I was under the impression the game did resolve it. (not sure why)

so yes, yes it was

Detective Pikachu, spoilers for the original video game and thus implied for the movie 

@The_T Bulbapedia's description of the end of the game: "Having fulfilled his promise to Mewtwo, Pikachu makes a choice and falls asleep. Mewtwo reveals to Tim that Harry is still alive, and that Tim will find him as long as he does not give up. Tim carries Pikachu back to his dad's apartment, and the next day, they start their search for Tim's father again together."

@The_T I dunno how heavily they imply it in the game, tho, might be a lotta wink-wink-nudge-nudge.

Detective Pikachu spoilers 

@Alexis it was obvious when the PokΓ©mon and humans started merging. My boyfriend and friends did not see it coming though

Detective Pikachu spoilers 

@Siphonay Oh, as soon as they started merging, there was absolutely no other way to end it.

@Alexis Hadn't occurred to me before seeing the movie, but I realised it right at the beginning of the movie. On the other hand, my sister didn't get it until right before the reveal.
