Detective Pikachu is set to be oozing with various Pokémon creatures, and here’s a chance for the uninitiated to get acquainted with some of them before the movie hits.

Framed as a casting video, on top of meeting the likes of Jigglypuff, Eevee and, erm, Magikarp, we get a few new scenes to take in as well.

In case you missed it, Ryan Reynolds voices the titular sleuth, and the whole thing is looking like a big (Poké) ball of wild fun.

We’ll find out for sure from May 9, as that’s when Detective Pikachu hits Australian cinemas.
