Detective Pikachu was an interesting project from the beginning, as soon as we had heard Ryan Reynolds would be starring as the beloved Pokémon character. Well, the first trailer is here, and it’s just that. Very interesting. The Deadpool actor shared the trailer on his own personal page, and we have it for you to witness below.
Personally, I thought the voice didn’t really fit that well, but the characters throughout the trailer, including Pikachu, all look great. And if that wasn’t enough, here’s a synopsis for the film:
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.
