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.
This is the second time a Legendary Entertainment film has moved from Universal to Warner. The other film was Kong: Skull Island (2017). See more »
At the start of the movie, when we see Tim trying to catch the Cubone, he doesn't understand that the Pokemon is about to escape the ball, catching him off guard. But he really shouldn't have been surprised, since he once was a Pokemon Trainer, which was later revealed when we were shown to his room. See more »
Being a Pokemon fan for many years I was very hesitant when the trailer first came out and especially with the stigma around video games getting movie adaptions that never work out but in this case THEY DELIVERED!
Ryan Reynolds once again continues to deliver amazing comedy while also tugging at our heartstrings in serious moments.The storyline for the movie was great and Rita Ora was a great adaption to the movie, her part as the scientist was surprising well given the common fact that not many singers can't act but I was pleasantly happy, hoping to see her more.
The movie itself has an amazing storyline that I won't give away, the real life adaptions of the Pokemon are beautiful and it's almost exactly how I'd imagine them if they were in the real world, the effects are amazing!
Go watch this movie!
