Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

Theatrical Poster 1
Spoiler-Free Synopsis

Tim (Justice Smith), who used to love pokemon when he was a boy, has been avoiding both his father Harry and pokemon ever since the former didn't come home while working on a case having to do with the latter. Years later the now adult Tim receives a phone call from Harry's former partner Lieutenant Yoshida (Ken Watanabe): "I'm sorry but your father was in an accident...he didn't make it." With his head still swirling with emotions Tim heads to Ryme City, a place where humans and pokemon live side by side. As he's in his father's apartment to clear out his belongings Tim has his first encounter with Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds), a pokemon who can speak human language that only he can hear. Detective Pikachu tells Tim that he was Harry's partner and that he lost his memory due to the accident but that he is sure of one thing: "Harry's still alive." Why did Harry vanish? What is the mystery of the incident that took place in Ryme City? A new duo is about to tackle this great mystery head on!

Notes

In the Nintendo 3DS game on which this movie is based, Detective Pikachu ~ Birth of a New Duo ~, Tim's voice is provided by Yuuma Uchida (内田雄馬). The fact that the movie isn't using the game cast for the Japanese dub for Tim suggests that other game characters may be recast as well.
