Ryan Reynolds voices the fan-favorite Pokemon anime character Pikachu. And "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" star Justice Smith is the only one who can understand him.

Check out the new official trailer for the very first live-action Pokemon movie "Detective Pikachu," which casts Smith as Tim Goodman, a young ex-Pokemon trainer trying to find his missing presumed-dead father who was once a detective assigned to the futuristic metropolis of Ryme City.

Along the way, Tim winds up teaming up with his father's ex-partner ... Detective Pikachu (voiced by Reynolds), an adorable yellow caffeine-addicted Pokemon creature that can talk, yet can't remember a thing about his past.

It seems Tim is the only person in Ryme City who can actually understand what Pikachu is saying. Together, they make one hell of a team as Tim can speak to humans while Pikachu can speak to pokemons.

"Goosebumps" director Rob Letterman helms the sci-fi detective film, which also stars Kathryn Newton (Blockers) and Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai).

"Pokemon Detective Pikachu" is slated for May 10th theatrical release.

synopsis:
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.
