POKÉMON Detective Pikachu gets it’s first official trailer – and it’s awesome

Detective Pikachu is the first ever live action Pokemon movie, staring Ryan Reynolds (yes, Deadpool!) as a Pikachu voice actor, a crazy plot that takes place in the neon-lit streets of Ryme City.

If the embeded video doesn’t work above, here’s the trailer:

Ryme City is a “sprawling, modern metropolis” where humans and Pokémon live side by side, or at least that’s what the movie wants us to believe. Pokemon featured in the trailer are rendered as hyper realistic versions of their typical anime look and feels, and they feel distinctively “natural” – Pikachu has fur. Jigglypuff has fur, Charizard has scales, Mr. Mime is humanoid and creepy, Greninja is a frog and quite powerful by the looks of it.

According to the official press release, the film also a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality. We’ve managed to spot quite a few in the trailer alone:

  • Flabebe,
  • Comfy,
  • Fearow,
  • Brabviary,
  • Dodrio,
  • Charmander,
  • Gengar,
  • Psyduck,
  • Jigglypuff,
  • Emolga,
  • Mr. Mime,
  • Pikachu,
  • Bulbasaur,
  • Morelull,
  • Charizard,
  • Greninja

The official website features a find-them-all mini game which unlocks the following video clip (mini game spoilers ahead): http://www.detectivepikachumovie.net/assets/video/FoundThem.mp4
