It’s Your Turn:
- Which character did you like the most? Why? Which character did you relate to the most? Why?
Caregiver Note: Children may relate to Tim, who feels a lot of pain following intense instances of loss and grief and as a result has resigned himself to life as a loner. Other children may relate to Pikachu who acts silly and tries really hard (sometimes too hard) to be likable to avoid being alone. Take note of not just what your child is saying but how they are saying it. At one point in the film, Pikachu discusses how humans and Pokemon can relate to one another without words, explaining that Pokemon can sense the intention behind words. Much like Pokemon, it is important that we don’t just take words at face value and look for the need attempting to be communicated by our children.
