Detective Pikachu - Trailer, News and More

Detective Pikachu is the first live action Pokemon film that will feature animated Pokemon along with live actors.  In some sense this will be a modern Pokemon version of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  The film stars Ryan Reynolds who lends his voice to Pikachu.  While most Pokemon can only verbally say variations of their name, the Detective Pikachu main character in the film will be able to talk.  This fact is suggested to be a mystery in the trailer.


Release Date:  May 10, 2019


Synopsis: 
“The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. 
Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.”
