Happy Pikachu Friday, Super Friends!
As of today Warner Bros. Detective Pikachu is now in cinemas as it begins its global rollout. We were lucky enough to get to see this movie last week and you can read our review here.
Over the last couple of weeks there’s been plenty of Pokemon themed events going on and we’ve been discussing them here in our latest podcast.
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.
Detective Pikachu arrives in cinemas May 10, 2019. The film stars Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton and Ken Watanabe.
