Detective Pikachu voice actor Brianna Knickerbocker talks about her role as Carina Mitchell

The folks at Miketendo64 recently caught up with Brianna Knickerbocker, the voice actor behind the character Carina Mitchell in Detective Pikachu. Read on below to check out portions of her interview across various topics.

Pokémon Partners:

Miketendo64: In Detective Pikachu, Carina has a Kricketune as her Pokémon partner, to help her be a better player. If you could have any Pokémon of your choosing, to be your real world partner, to help you out in any capacity, who would it be and why?

Brianna Knickerbocker: I’m not sure!! That’s a tough one! I need to do more research on different Pokémon to make sure I pick the right one.

Spoilt for Choice:

Miketendo64: Having been involved with both Fire Emblem and Pokémon games now, are there any other Nintendo IP’s you’d hope to lend a voice to? Zelda may be taken, but Princess Peach is available.

Brianna Knickerbocker: Oh my gosh!!! How can I choose!!!!!!!!

Detective Pikachu: Landing the Role of Carina Mitchell:

Miketendo64: Moving away from Fire Emblem, you’re actually involved with another Nintendo related title that released this month, Detective Pikachu. Similar to the Fire Emblem Warriors question above, when did you first find out about Detective Pikachu and who approached who?

Brianna Knickerbocker: Originally Bangzoom had me audition for another female character, whom I didn’t book. Then a couple weeks or so later I got an email saying they’d like me to play Carina!

Unaware of Detective Pikachu’s Admiration to Carina:

Miketendo64: Although not in Detective Pikachu for very long, as she’s only in it for a single chapter, you voice the talented Carina Mitchell. So talented in fact, her musical talents with a violin, practically make Pikachu fall in love with her and cry. Was this something you got to learn about in the beginning, or come to know much later on?

Brianna Knickerbocker: When I was recording I only got to hear the lines preceding mine, so I didn’t know the full extent of Pikachu’s adorable reaction to Carina.

Pokémon Partners:

Miketendo64: In Detective Pikachu, Carina has a Kricketune as her Pokémon partner, to help her be a better player. If you could have any Pokémon of your choosing, to be your real world partner, to help you out in any capacity, who would it be and why?

Brianna Knickerbocker: I’m not sure!! That’s a tough one! I need to do more research on different Pokémon to make sure I pick the right one.

Pika Power and Watching Playthroughs:

Miketendo64: Still on the subject of Detective Pikachu, since you are in it, have you picked up the game at all to experience it for yourself and are you at all interested in watching the Detective Pikachu movie when it releases next year?

Brianna Knickerbocker: I haven’t played it yet, but I was enjoying watching the playthrough a gamer posted online—all the voice acting turned out so perfectly, everyone fits their characters so well and the story is fun! The movie looks cute!
