The first trailer for Detective Pikachu has just hit the internet, and I don’t know what I expected when I heard they were making a live action Pokemon movie, but it definitely wasn’t this.

Give it a watch. Then we’ll talk.

So there are a few things to unpack here, but let’s start with the obvious thing: Pikachu can speak now. And he’s voiced by Ryan Reynolds.

It’s… weird.

Then there’s the fact that both Pikachu and Jigglypuff have fur. Which I guess makes sense? I hate it, but it makes sense.

It’s certainly better than whatever the fuck is going on here.

This thing is gonna be wild folks.

Detective Pikachu hits cinemas in Australia on May 9, 2019.
