POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU
When ace detective Harry Goodman goes missing, his son, Tim, and Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds), join forces to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together on an epic adventure through Ryme City, they uncover a shocking plot that could destroy the whole Pokémon universe.
The son of detective Harry Goodman, Tim works a boring, dead end job selling insurance. Raised by his loving grandmother, he resents his father just as much as he resents all Pokémon – his childhood dreams of becoming a Pokémon trainer dashed by absentee parents. But he would soon have to put his feelings aside as he finds himself thrust into the mystery of his father’s disappearance, and an unlikely partnership with Detective Pikachu, a one-of-a-kind talking Pokémon supersleuth that only he can understand. Tim’s life is about to get a whole lot more exciting.
The Pokémon partner of detective Harry Goodman isn’t your typical everyday Pikachu. He can talk, for starters. Unable to remember who he is or how to use his electric Pokémon abilities, this wise-cracking, back-talking, and coffee-addicted “detective” becomes the unwilling partner of Harry’s son, Tim - the only one who can understand him. Detective Pikachu has electricity-storing pouches on his cheeks and can shoot a lightning bolt from its tail.
A put-upon intern at the CNM Network who is no way near as confident as she acts, Lucy Stevens is determined to show the world she has the journalistic integrity to expose the truth and become a seasoned reporter. With her Pokémon partner Psyduck by her side, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to investigate the leads no one else will, and has what it takes to shine a light in the darkened corners of shadowy conspiracies.
And if Tim’s awkward glances suggest an interest in Lucy that goes beyond her journalistic abilities, she certainly hasn’t got time to notice.
It’s a Pokémon with psychic powers, and the best of them all. It made you think that. When Psyduck gets a headache, its opponents feel it as it releases tension in the form of devastating brain waves in battle. Best not to stress it out.
Abilities: Damp, Cloud Nine
Battle Weakness: Grass, Electric
Pokemon Detective Pikachu: Special Edition (DVD)
When ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, his son Tim (Justice Smith) embarks on a journey to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds), a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to work together, as Tim is the only human who can talk with Pikachu, they 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.]]>

I went in with low expectations (video game movies haven't exactly set the bar high) but I can say I pleasantly enjoyed the movie as a huge Pokemon fan. You either like it or you don't - but that's ok. I want to stress the importance and say rent this before buying a copy. I saw this opening weekend and I would say it was worth the money.
- The in-universe world of Rhyme City and its surrounding wilderness look absolutely stunning and Pokemon look beautiful in this art style. It's an acquired taste, despite some of the more creepy creatures.
- Ryan Reynold's role as Detective Pikachu is almost a good enough reason to see it alone. The jokes tiptoe the line of what is acceptable in a PG rated film, and has many things adults would get a good chuckle out of.
- Tim Goodman (played by Justice Smith) is a bit of a more relatable character if you've worked a dead-end job. I like his more dead-pan feel.
- Certain heartwarming moments may have you choked up
- Pacing is just a LIITLE bit too fast, but its a children's movie at heart. It could benefit from 20 to 40 minutes more run time (coming in at 1hr 40m or so.)
- The reporter character is kind of one dimensional and is a shoehorned love interest that never really goes anywhere. She would be better off without the romantic tension.
All in all, it is still worth seeing it in theatre, then buying the Blu-ray so you can go through all the fine details with the frame by frame inevitable YouTube analysis videos.

The visuals are gorgeous, though. If you've ever wondered what a Blade Runner would look like in a Pokémon world, here you go. Whether at home, out and about in the city, or in nature, the Pokémon fit in nicely to create a believable AU.
Meta: My biggest quibble is with Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu. It's not his voice acting per se, but some of the humor was more mature in tone and I kept waiting for him to bring it into the Deadpool zone. Obviously this doesn't happen, but if you plan a Deadpool/Detective Pikachu double feature, you might have the same issue.
All in all, it's enjoyable but the themes and tone are best for a slightly older audience; One which still enjoys Pokémon.
*Note on bonus features audio issue*
Audio for the bonus features could NOT be heard. Watched it on the Fire Stick and noticed that while the audio for the bonus features was on the Dolby Digital Plus audio output option the audio could not be heard. BUT I switched the audio output to STEREO and then I was able to get audio for the bonus features.
is one that everyone enjoyed watching. All the Pokemon are just to adorable.
