Warner Bros releases Detective Pikachu trailer

Video: The Pokémon Detective Pikachu Movie's First Official Trailer Has Landed

The Pokemon fever dream of a live-action movie where Pikachu is a detective voiced by Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds is coming true.

Set in Ryme City - which resembles a PG-rated version of Blade Runner's future dystopia - the trailer finds young Tim Goodman (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's Justice Smith) looking into the mysterious disappearance of his detective father.

The hugely successful Pokemon franchise, which first emerged in Japan in 2006, regained popularity in 2016 with the release of the Pokemon Go app that allowed followers to find and capture virtual creatures all over the globe.

Detective Pikachu blasts into theaters on May 10, 2019. Pikachu is a fluffier version of the Pokemon everyone knows, just with the gruff voice of Reynolds, but some of the others look much different. He's referring to the conundrum that most people can only hear Pikachu saying "pika pika" when he tries to speak.

As you can see above, the trailer gives us a good look at how the Pokémon have been adapted to work on the big screen alongside their human counterparts, with Detective Pikachu himself, Mr. Mime, Jigglypuff, Charizard, Greninja, and more all starring in the clip. Pokemon fans will be able to spot a laundry list of the famous monsters in the footage.
