  • POKÉMON Detective Pikachu - In Theaters May 10, 2019
    The world of Pokémon comes to life!
    The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokémon brand-one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.
    Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.
    The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City-a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world-they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.
    “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” also stars Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) as Tim; Kathryn Newton (“Lady Bird,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“Godzilla,” “The Last Samurai”) as Lt. Yoshida.
    Directed by Rob Letterman (“Goosebumps,” “Monsters Vs. Aliens”), the “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” creative filmmaking team includes two-time Oscar nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Gladiator”), production designer Nigel Phelps (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies”) and Oscar-winning editor Mark Sanger (“Gravity”). Visual effects are by Moving Picture Company (“Wonder Woman”) and Framestore (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”).
    Launched in 1996 to overwhelming response, the Pokémon brand is a global sensation that now encompasses a robust video gaming fandom with over 300 million units sold worldwide; the Pokémon Trading Card Game available in 11 languages with more than 23.6 billion cards shipped; an animated television series in its 21st season that is available in more than 160 countries; and over 20 animated films; as well as books, manga comics, music, toys, merchandise, and apps, including the wildly popular Pokémon GO, that has been downloaded over 850 million times and is enjoyed across the globe by fans of all ages.
    “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” is set for release on Friday, May 10, 2019.
    The film will be distributed outside of Japan and China by Warner Bros. Pictures, in Japan by Toho Company, Ltd. and by Legendary East in China.

      MrJohnnyJohnster it sucks that he declined because he “didn’t want to be the one to ruin many childhoods by voicing an iconic cute and cuddly character” it makes sense, but I wish he had more confidence in Warner Bros. like Ryan Reynolds did.

    All those Easter egg vendor signs/ads from the movie poster are the reason we need we a really immersive non battling Pokemon open-world game where the real focus is interacting with them as respectful part of their advertised vendors where they make the most sense or in their own natural wildlife habitats where again they make the most sense. As I've said over the years for further immersion, give then realistic, natural life-like cries/communication/sounds/etc vs digital/midi-like cries, and life-like graphic textures for those with resemblence to our every day animals, items, etc that they match, same treatment for made up 1s to which they most resemble. If I could go any further, I'd say make it AR/MR (Mixed/MergedReality), (maybe VR) but for HMDs. (headset viewer)

    When I was almost 10, I told my mum that for my birthday I wanted a Pokédex and a starter-partner pokémon. She laughed at me. I went to my room and cried. I'd show her that I could be a Pokémon trainer! I would be the best one!

    After that, I ran from home and got my first Pokémon; A Bulbasaur. I went on my journey, growing up alongside my partner Bulbasaur, who after some months evolved into a hella cool Venusaur and became the strongest Pokémon people had ever seen. Other Pokémon such as Growlithe, Gastly, Eevee, Poochyena and even Mewtwo joined my team. I caught new Pokémon and evolved them. We became a great team, we cared about each other and we would all do our best to become even better and overjump the limits. Arcanine, Gengar, Jolteon, Mightyena, Mewtwo and of course Venusaur were the Pokémon that I loved the most.

    Time went by and our adventures kept going... We grew up, grew stronger, grew more font to each other. In 4 years, we had won in 6 different Pokémon leagues and in 3 Contests and we had saved the world 8 times.

      AHighDef. Experience 18 hours ago

      Jon the Misunderstood Why so surprised? The Pokédex mentions how it's evolution, Wigglytuff, has very soft fur. Would you rather that curl on its head be are of flesh instead? Also, just because it has fur doesn't mean that it's skin can't be elastic like a balloon.
