Ryan Reynolds Drops Pokémon: Detective Pikachu Trailer

Ryan Reynolds Drops Pokémon: Detective Pikachu Trailer

Ryan Reynolds has shared another trailer for Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.

The actor shared the trailer on Twitter, with the caption: "He'll follow those clues no matter where they... oh look, something shiny."

Reynolds will play the popular pocket monster in the film, which is set in the Pokémon universe.


The Pokémon franchise is over 20 years old now, and from the original 150 creatures (arguably 151 including MewTwo), it now has over 800 in its catalogue and dozens of games - but this film is definitely going to let fans see their childhood favourites in a whole new light.

The 42-year-old previously announced his involvement by sharing the first trailer for the film on Twitter. In the tweet, he said: "I think we all knew I'd wind up as a miniature detective repeatedly saying the same two words. Just didn't think it'd be this soon."

The film is being made by Warner Bros. Pictures in conjunction with The Pokémon Company and will be the first live-action film set in the Pokémon Universe.

The story will follow Pikachu as he helps Tim (Justice Smith) to solve a mystery, with one of the movie's villains believed to be Greninja - a dark/water type frog-like Pokémon.

Detective Pikachu is based on the Pokémon spin-off game of the same name, in which players work with a talking Pikachu to solve mysteries.

Just in case you've been living under a rock for the last 20 years, Pikachu is the most famous icon of the Pokémon franchise, which has taken the world by storm since it emerged in the 1990s.

Nintendo's Pokémon franchise has sold over 300 million video games worldwide, shipped out billions of trading cards and has been the subject of a long-running animated series, so it's easy to see why producers believe the film will be a smash hit.

The film is due to be released on 10 May 2019.
