If all the Detective Pikachu trailers released these past few months have only left you wanting more, Warner Bros, Legendary Pictures and The Pokemon Company have released one last trailer for Rob Letterman’s live-action/CGI Pokemon movie.
This newest and final trailer, which you can watch below, is a fair sight longer than the most recent Pikachu spotlight shared by Ryan Reynolds last week. Like the other official trailers, it offers some yet unseen snippets of Pokemon that will be in the film, like an impressively massive Gyarados and a close-up of the legendary Mewtwo.
Based on the Detective Pikachu game that first came out in 2016 on the 3DS, the movie stars Justice Smith as Tim Goodman, former Pokemon trainer and the son of prominent Rhyme City detective Harry Goodman. As Tim investigates the mysterious disappearance of his father he’s joined by Harry’s former partner, who just so happens to be a Pikachu(Reynolds). Together they explore the city in search of clues as they unravel the mystery surrounding Harry’s disappearance.
The new trailer also lets us get a closer look at another human character: the Psyduck toting Lucy(played by Kathryn Newton). As of yet we don’t know much about her apart from the fact that she seems to be in on Harry’s case and may be a potential love interest for Tim.
Detective Pikachu hits theaters on May 10 and with little over a month to go, Legendary Pictures have been keeping the interest levels topped up with a steady stream of of trailers, as well as totally real, gritty, behind-the-scenes footage, and even movie-exclusive trading cards. Definitely enough to keep those waiting for the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield later this year satisfied.
Legendary is already so confident of the movie’s success they’re already thinking about an expanded cinematic universe.
Sweet mother of Arceus, indeed.
