The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.

 

Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.

 

The story begins when ace private eye 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.

 

“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” also stars Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) as Tim; Kathryn Newton (“Lady Bird,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“Godzilla,” “The Last Samurai”) as Lt. Yoshida.

 

Directed by Rob Letterman (“Goosebumps,” “Monsters Vs. Aliens”), the “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” creative filmmaking team includes two-time Oscar nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Gladiator”), production designer Nigel Phelps (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies”) and Oscar-winning editor Mark Sanger (“Gravity”). Visual effects are by Moving Picture Company (“Wonder Woman”) and Framestore (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”).

 

Launched in 1996 to overwhelming response, the Pokémon brand is a global sensation that now encompasses a robust video gaming fandom with over 300 million units sold worldwide; the Pokémon Trading Card Game available in 11 languages with more than 23.6 billion cards shipped; an animated television series in its 21st season that is available in more than 160 countries; and over 20 animated films; as well as books, manga comics, music, toys, merchandise, and apps, including the wildly popular Pokémon GO, that has been downloaded over 850 million times and is enjoyed across the globe by fans of all ages.

 

“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” is set for release on Friday, May 10, 2019.

My co-worker just pulled me aside to show this to me and I was just about to link it.

 

I didn't think this was real for a good 60 seconds.

So this is some unholy mix of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Zootopia, and an SNL skit, maybe? My brain is not prepared to process this.

I like the creepy designs, but I hate Deadpool as Pikachu. I can't tell is RR can only do DP now or what, but I don't like that. I would have preferred a gritty sounding pikashit.

 

Edit: No clue why I quoted you but there it is.

I, for one, like fuzzy jifflypuff. I feel like you either go that route or the skin route and I really don't want to look at a balloon of bare skin.

Yes. I just don't seem to pay attention to whatever abominations autocorrect on my phone comes up with.

I honestly did not think I would want to see this but I heard Ryan Reynolds but most of all saw Jiggliepuff. I may not go to the theater to see it but I will see it eventually on bluray or netflix

Once you remember that Mr Mine has always been terrifying, then you won't have any issue with it in thid movie. Just try to remember that in the games, his "hair" is actually a set of horns and his toes are what curl up to look like shoes.

So after actually watching the trailer I uhhh kinda wouldn’t mind seeing this. 

 

Also Ryan Reynolds has always only been able to play Deadpool. He’s been playing that character since 2 Guys and a Girl.
