Pokemon Detective Pikachu now has a second trailer. I’m led to understand it features ‘Mewtwo’ and I still couldn’t give two hoots about it.
The film is released in the UK on May 10th 2019.

Pokemon Detective Pikachu – where to begin… oh dear..
I never got into the Pokemon craze, and couldn’t give too hoots about the toys, the movies, the cartoons, nor even the original videogames.
However, lots of kids do, and this includes those who are buying the recent Pokemon Detective Pikachu videogame for the Nintendo 3DS.
So now, we have a movie to contend with – and we all know how well videogames fare as movies.
The first-ever live-action Pokémon adventure, Pokemon Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) 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 world of Pokémon comes to life!
Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as 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.
And as much as I love Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool, I really can be doing without this, but then… it’s not really aimed at me. It’s aimed at children.
