Pokemon meets Who Framed Roger Rabbit role reversal

It's a tame game that is like Eddy and Roger Rabbit role swapped except with Pikachu. And instead of being a drunk like the Roger Rabbit characters, this Pikachu loves coffee ALOT. It's a very funny game and it is mostly cut scenes. Pikachu is absolutely funny and there is very mild innuendo and flirting. The game ends on a cliffhanger making it seem like there is a sequel to come. I hope so because this is just a cute little game with a very funny coffee loving Pikachu who is also a "ladies man". It's also a good story of friendship.
