New ‘Pokemon: Detective Pikachu’ trailer released for Earth Day

Warner Bros and Ryan Reynolds has released a brand new trailer for upcoming film POKÉMON: Detective Pikachu for Earth Day, which sees Tim (Justice Smith) exploring a breathtaking World of varied Pokemon, set to Louis Armstrong’s classic tune ‘What a Wonderful World.’

The new trailer was released by the voice of Pikachu, star Ryan Reynolds, on his social media accounts and explores a whole bunch of new environments with Pokemon in the wild – make sure you look out for those super cute shots of Charmander and Bulbasaur!

Check out the trailer below!

The story begins when ace detective 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 work together, as Tim is the only human who can talk with Pikachu, they 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.

POKÉMON: Detective Pikachu stars Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) as Tim, and Kathryn Newton (“Lady Bird,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; as well as Suki Waterhouse (“Insurgent”), Omar Chaparro (“Overboard”), Chris Geere (TV’s “Modern Family”), and Rita Ora, with Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“The Last Samurai”) and Bill Nighy (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1”).

POKÉMON: Detective Pikachu is set for release on Friday, May 10, 2019.
