The first trailer for the Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie has been released onto the Warner Bros. YouTube Channel and from it can see star, Ryan Reynolds hanging up the Deadpool costume to step into the shoes of furry cheeky detective.

The trailer showcases to fans what a world would be like if Pokemon were real and lived in harmony with humans. We are introduced to 21-year old Tim who is looking for his missing dad when he encounters a Pikachu, the catch is that Tim is the only one who can hear Pikachu talk.

Pokemon Detective Pikachu is based off the Nintendo 3DS game that has the exact same title, the game featured a world where Pokemon solved crimes instead of traditionally battling eachother with humans. It truly is quite strange to see Pokemon in the realworld, I personally forgot that if Pokemon were real they would definitely be as hairy as what we see in the above trailer. It should be noted that Pikachu is played by none other than Ryan Reynolds and is accompanied by Justice Smith (Tim) from Jurassic Kingdom: Fallen World. Detective Pikachu will be arriving in theaters May 9th, 2019.

Ryan Reynolds is also planning on playing in a sci-fi action comedy that is being organized by 20th Century Fox, read more on that here.

Jak's love for science, space, and technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
