Ryan Reynolds voices Pikachu as only Ryan Reynolds can.
In a world where humans collect and train pocket-sized creatures, a teenage boy comes across one who seeks to be a detective.
This is your first trailer for "Pokémon Detective Pikachu."
After getting over the initial "Oh, my God -- you can understand me?" and "Oh, my God -- you're a talking Pikachu!" reactions, the two embark on a journey to find and save Tim's father. Kathryn Newton plays a journalist who helps the duo on their quest, while Ken Watanabe plays a new character created for the film, Detective Yoshida.
"The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son, Tim, to find out what happened," reads a release from Warner Bros. "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," the synopsis continues. "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."
"Pokemon Detective Pikachu" will hit theaters in 2019.
