The first Detective Pikachu movie trailer is terrifying, looks perfect

November 12, 2018 1 min read

I can only imagine that Pokémon fans reacted to the news of a film adaptation for Detective Pikachu with a mix of skepticism and curiosity, with a bit of horror sprinkled in. Today, through the film's first trailer, Warner Bros. gave us a better picture of what to expect, which is an attempt at a photorealistic, furry electric mouse that happens to sound like Ryan Reynolds.

Lead actor Justice Smith (The Get Down) portrays Tim Goodman, a young man who discovers a Pikachu (the voice of Reynolds) and acts as the one person who can understand his "Pika Pikas" as actual words. The two unlikely cohorts team up on an adventure to find Goodman's missing father, utilizing the apparent amazing detective abilities that this Pikachu inhabits. Expect other Pokémon like Psyduck, Jigglypuff, Charizard, and a host of other pocket monsters from all of the different generations of Pokémon to show up. And yes, they all have the same "realistic" look, with fur, scales, etc.
