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.
It has been said that the huge success of the Pokémon GO mobile game was the reason why the franchise was allowed to become a live action movie. 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 »
Seriously why are movie critics and people who dont even play the games or watch the anime giving the movie such bad reviews, its not the movies fault you don't understand the source material, its YOURS!! Im 30 years old and For life long Pokemon fans this is a dream come true to see all the Mons in live action for the first time. So stop leaving bad reviews and tearing this movie down just because you grew up with no joy in your miserable lives!!
This movie is for the fans!!!
