Another brief look at the upcoming Pokémon flick Detective Pikachu has arrived.
Now that we’ve accepted the fact that the titular yellow thing is furry, we can get on with listening to Ryan Reynolds Deadpooling it up (but more politely) as the voice of the Pokémon universe ambassador.
The film is set in Ryme City, where humans and Pokémon co-exist peacefully. The story begins when private eye Harry Goodman goes missing. This prompts his 21-year-old son Tim to work out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu. Finding that they’re actually able to undertand each other – most humans just hear, “Pika! Pika!”, apparently – the pair join forces to hunt down clues and hopefully solve the mystery.
Pokémon Detective Pikachu is set for an Australian cinema release on May 9, 2019.
