Detective Pikachu Movie Receives First Trailer and Poster

Detective Pikachu was a game released for the 3DS a couple of years ago. It put a different spin on the traditional Pokémon action by involving a crime solving Pikachu partner. Now, a live action film adaptation is in the works and practically almost complete!

A new trailer has been released showing off the Ryan Reynolds-voiced Pikachu. It teams up with Tim, played by Justice Smith, to hopefully track down Tim’s missing father. The world is pretty realistic compared to the Pokémon we are used to. The script and humor is better suited for audiences a bit older but will surely be enjoyed by all ages.

Have a look at the preview below along with a poster filled with all kinds of fun details. Detective Pikachu is set for release in summer 2019.
