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 »
Down by the docks. Rough part of town, not the sorta place you wanna visit alone at night.

Well, I'm actually pretty good at being alone at night.

The closing credits appear in a sequence of manga/anime images of events/characters from the film. The characters mimic the artwork of lead Pokémon series designer, Ken Sugimori. See more »
I've loved Pokémon my whole life and this was the most excited about Pokemon developments since Pokemon go. Whilst there is nothing to hate about the film I couldn't describe it as more than reasonably good and mildly enjoyable where as I was hoping to be blown away throughout. Having said that I'm excited to see where the franchise goes movie wise in the future as it certainly has potential.
