In a world where people collect pocket monsters (Pokémon) to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent monster who seeks to be a detective.
Tim Goodman, played by the talented Justice Smith, seems to be at a crossroad in his life with the disappearance of his father along with the past desire to be a Pokéman master. Cue in the infamous and now fuzzy Pikachu, played by Ryan Reynolds, and of course the adventure begins to seek the truth all set in Ryme City where both pokémon and humans live in unison.
Let’s get it out of the way: yes, Ryan Reynolds who plays Deadpool is indeed Pikachu. As an audience member who has grown accustomed to Deadpool, we are challenged to watch one of our favorite lovable and sometimes sassy anime character be voiced by an actor and disassociate him from a past role. Can we do it? Well, I did.
The trailer wraps every generation that can be associated with the boom of pokemon. There are those who grew up playing the cards, those who were forced to buy the trading cards for their children to avoid a meltdown, and the generation that came after the peak of the Pokémon craze. The trailer had the inclusive ability to bring together these three generations with its familiar characters, classic “Happy Together” track by the Turtles, and rewarding CGI effects.
