Okay, raise your hands if you’ve ever played Pokémon. I’m raising my hand. Pokémon was definitely after my time, but when my son was around 10, he discovered the game. I learned how to play and took him to the hobby shop to play with other fans. We’ve got Pokémon cards, puzzles, games, VHS tapes (yes), figures, and I’m not sure what else. I don’t think that the craze ever really went away. It may have laid dormant for awhile, but Pokémon Go definitely gave it new life. Now fans are excited to see Pokémon Detective Pikachu in theaters May 10, 2019.
Pokémon Detective Pikachu
The world of Pokémon comes to life!
The first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu, the iconic face of the global Pokémon phenomenon—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and the most successful media franchise of all time.
Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as 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.
About Pokémon Detective Pikachu
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. He’s 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. They chase clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City. Ryme city is a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world. The duo 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.
