The first official trailer for the upcoming Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie has officially arrived, giving us our very first look at the film in action.
As you can see above, the trailer gives us a good look at how the Pokémon have been adapted to work on the big screen alongside their human counterparts, with Detective Pikachu himself, Mr. Mime, Jigglypuff, Charizard, Greninja, and more all starring in the clip. As mentioned in the recent early screening report, the characters have a real-world art style to them which takes a little getting used to at first, but certainly leaves a lasting impression.
We also get to see a nice, fan-friendly level of detail plastered through each scene; the house is full of posters and artwork that look like they’d belong in a real Pokémon world (with references to not-as-famous elements of the games, too) and the Mr. Mime scene provides a really interesting – and comical – take on the character.
With Ryan Reynolds starring as Pikachu, Justice Smith playing Tim Goodman, and other stars such as Kathryn Newton and Ken Watanabe joining the cast too, this strikes us as having a great deal of potential. The movie hits cinemas on 10th May 2019.
