POKÉMON Detective Pikachu - In Theaters May 11, 2019
The world of Pokémon comes to life!
The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokémon brand-one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.
Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.
The story begins when ace private eye 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.
“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” also stars Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) as Tim; Kathryn Newton (“Lady Bird,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“Godzilla,” “The Last Samurai”) as Lt. Yoshida.
Directed by Rob Letterman (“Goosebumps,” “Monsters Vs. Aliens”), the “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” creative filmmaking team includes two-time Oscar nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Gladiator”), production designer Nigel Phelps (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies”) and Oscar-winning editor Mark Sanger (“Gravity”). Visual effects are by Moving Picture Company (“Wonder Woman”) and Framestore (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”).
Launched in 1996 to overwhelming response, the Pokémon brand is a global sensation that now encompasses a robust video gaming fandom with over 300 million units sold worldwide; the Pokémon Trading Card Game available in 11 languages with more than 23.6 billion cards shipped; an animated television series in its 21st season that is available in more than 160 countries; and over 20 animated films; as well as books, manga comics, music, toys, merchandise, and apps, including the wildly popular Pokémon GO, that has been downloaded over 850 million times and is enjoyed across the globe by fans of all ages.
“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” is set for release on Friday, May 10, 2019.
The film will be distributed outside of Japan and China by Warner Bros. Pictures, in Japan by Toho Company, Ltd. and by Legendary East in China.


  • The dream i was waiting for.....for pokemon to be real

  • So this is what its like to live long enough to see all your happy childhood franchises burn to ash in the name of corporate profit indexs

  • Ted 3 a poke comedy move

  • I thought this was a live action trailer for the game

  • I like how they included pokemon from almost all gens in here. The only gen I didn't see in this trailer was gen 4.

  • Is that Ryan Reynolds?


  • I.... I want to hate this... there is so... so much wrong... and YET... it is just such a cluster-fuck that I really absolutely have to see this and I really absolutely don't want to. This floors me. Years of cartoon pokemon movies/games and their FIRST goddamn foot in the door of Live-Action is THIS?! Pokemon detective? Was that even remotely a thing in the Pokeuniverse? Breeding. Battling. Beauty contests. Picture-Taking. POFFIN cooking. But no, this, THIS is where we start the PR campaign? All I have is colorless passion for this right now; not hate, not love, but certainly not nothing. And I have to sit with this feeling for at least six months. *Sigh* ...I was not ready for this, but I don't think it was possible to be...

  • This looks way too good to be true

  • How could they get this so wrong 😭😭😭😭😭

  • I don't really follows Pokémon, but isn't Pikachu supposed to only say his name? I mean, please correct if I'm wrong

  • *WUTFACE?!?*

  • The reason everyone loves this and can't explain why is because of you're nostalgia of Pokemon and this is definitely a more grown up version (compared to the show at least) makes it feel like the franchise has grown with you

  • still wish danny devitos voice came outta that pikachu

  • The voice just doesn't match Pikachu, other than that doesn't look that bad.

  • Why the hell is Ryan Reynolds doing this why is he attaching his name to something that's going to be worse than Dragonball evolution if I was Ryan Reynolds and I got this script I would say yeah this is going to be terrible this is going to be worse than the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

  • Kok gak satoshi aja ya yg maen nya malah ganti tokoh😂

  • Sinnoh region

  • Gggggoooooooooodddddddd

  • Honestly, because the place is called Ryme City, I hope we see some Pokémon spitting some dope bars for battles.
