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.
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 »

I hated rubbing your feet! I can never forgive my hands for what they've done!

My god, this movie was excellent. I love everything about this movie. Justice Smith delivers a great serious performance as Tim Goodman, while Ryan Reynolds delivers a very good comedic performance. If anyone who's wondering about if he's acting like deadpool in this. He's not. There's a lighter and softer tone than what he says in the Deadpool movies. I won't give anything away because there are to many surprises. Espically for Pokemon Fans. Pikachu interactions with other Pokemon were a treat. The VFX are so Spectacular, that it feels like the Pokemon are real along with the world-building. The Film is for everyone, but it will be an extra TREAT for the Pokemon fans.
