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.
Justice Smith was the first person confirmed to be a part of this movie. Smith's character in Paper Towns (2015) sang the Pokémon theme song in a strip mall scene, after Smith and his co-star, Halston Sage, suggested it. See more »

They try to talk to me all the time, but all they hear is "Pika-pika!"
[to a person's girlfriend, asking if she can understand Pikachu speaking]
You can hear him... right?
[in his Pokemon voice]
Yeah, pika-pika-pika! He's adorable!
[to the girlfriend]
[pause, knowing that only Tim can understand him]
They can't understand me, kid.
[exasperated, knowing that no one can understand Pikachu]
Can no-one else hear him?

Detective Pikachu, I Was Really Disappointed ( Score 5.9/10 ⭐ )
First of all, i was pretty excited to watch this movie. After i watched the movie, i'm so disappointed. I don't understand the hype that this movie has been receiving and i surely don't understand the reviews praising it. Good effect but very lousy story. Nevertheless, they were still entertaining. Go watch it, if you're a hardcore fan of pokemon. Pikaa Pikaaa !!!
