The only other thing that’ll keep Psyduck from getting an explosive headache is a foot massage.
Warner Bros. Pictures dropped a new Detective Pikachu trailer today, in which the mystery-solving electric mouse expresses disgust at Psyduck for asking him to massage its filthy webbed feet not knowing what kind of waters it dipped them in. Then again, Psyduck has no idea where Detective Pikachu’s paws have been, either, but Tim Goodman is relishing the moment from his rearview mirror.
We also get a glimpse of Detective Pikachu taking to the skies of Ryme City with Pidgeot, who is designed like a real bird in every way except for its hair, which looks as though it’s been sculpted with Play-Doh, as Lucy Stevens (Kathryn Newton) looks up hoping that Pikachu doesn’t fall off.
Detective Pikachu is shaping up to be the best video game film adaptation of all time, based on electrifying social media posts from critics who, Pokémon fans or not, went to early screenings of the film (official reviews are embargoed until next week).
If you’re as excited as us to watch Detective Pikachu, you can head to Gofobo, where you can look up advanced screenings of Detective Pikachu in your area between May 2 and May 6.
Detective Pikachu releases in theaters on May 10.
