It gets depressing when you realize that now he throws up peace signs all the time because he basically watched that soldier get killed with weaponry that he made and the poor kid just wanted a cool picture for Facebook or something
…why would you even say that…
Welcome to the Iron Man fandom, where every minor and major thing Tony does has a back story and will make you want to cry.
Awww… Look how eager he is like “Ohmygod It’s Tony Stark. Wait until mom and my friends back home see this.” and then he gets serious like “Oh. Sorry. Yes sir.” and he’s slightly disappointed for a moment and then he’s like “Really? Aw yeah! This guy is so chill!”
funny story: this scene was actually improvised. the script originally called for pikachu to roll over onto his side and deliver a line that went “good battling today ash. can we get ihop in the morning?” but during filming, pikachu started thinking about how his real life trainer never hugged him and also will smith’s dad, so he delivered this amazing performance all off the top of his head. the animator was like whoa wtf. what a brilliant moment.
