POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is the first-ever live-action Pokémon and stars Ryan Reynold as Pikachu.

According to the official movie synopsis, 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.

Matt Patches, entertainment editor at Polygon says, "the surprising part is that Pikachu has fur. He is kitty-like. And it’s shocking."
