Pokemon has been a global phenomenon for over 20 years, capturing the hearts of generations and morphing their imaginations. The sensational pocket monsters have creeped into our lives through an assortment of Nintendo games, trading card games, long running anime and a variety of video games.

However, one thing which was missing was a real life action movie.

Well, the wait is over; Detective Pikachu is the first Pokemon movie of its kind in which live-action humans interact with Pokemon. Warner Bros released the first trailer for its upcoming film Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, on Monday and we love it! It shows the Pikachu enveloped in thick yellow fur, which some fans have called “grotesque” and “disgusting” but we find it insanely adorable.

While Pikachu has always been described as furry, it is the first time the character has been rendered in “life-like” 3D in an official capacity. Pokemon can’t usually talk, but this time, Pikachu is voiced by everyone’s favorite, Ryan Reynolds, who portrays a mixture of an adorable yet fuzzy voice for the electric Pokemon. The team brilliantly captured the cute expressions of the little creature, making him irresistible.

The film begins when ace detective Harry Goodman mysteriously goes missing, prompting his 21 year old son Tim (played by Justice Smith) to investigate into what exactly happened. Assisted by Harry’s former Pokemon partner Detective Pikachu, the two join hands on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery by chasing clues while encountering perplexing obstacles on their journey.

Written by Nicole Perlman and directed by Rob Letterman, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu releases on May 10, 2019.
