Detective Pikachu

Certificate: PG

The world of Pokémon comes to life!

The first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure stars Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu, the iconic face of the global Pokémon phenomenon - one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and the most successful media franchise of all time.

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.

The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.
