To prepare for his latest film, Ryan Reynolds took the techniques of method acting to the next level as he immersed himself in all things Pokemon, often to the detriment of his own family.

Check out the newly-released "Outside the Actors Studio" spoof video, in which Reynolds explains the lengths he went to in order to become Pikachu, the famed yellow-colored bunny-like Pokemon character in the upcoming live-action film "Pokemon Detective Pikachu."

"I became the character. I spent the entire year as Detective Pikachu," Reynolds says in the above video. "I live at his height. I tried to lose 182 pounds to match his weight ... until doctors intervened."

Directed by "Goosebumps" helmer Rob Letterman and starring Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom), "Pokemon Detective Pikachu," which casts Reynolds as the voice of Pikachu, is set to hit theaters May 10th.

The world of Pokemon comes to life!

The first-ever live-action Pokemon movie, "POKEMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokemon brand -- one of the world's most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.

Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokemon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokemon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim (Justice Smith) to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry's former Pokemon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu 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 Pokemon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world -- they encounter a diverse cast of Pokemon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokemon universe.
