Ryan Reynolds is a world-class detective, but he takes the form of a small, fluffy yellow Pokemon creature in the new official TV spot for the upcoming live-action Pokemon movie "Detective Pikachu."

The film, directed by "Goosebumps" helmer Rob Letterman, follows a young ex-Pokemon trainer named Tim Goodman (played by "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" actor Justice Smith), as he goes on a quest to find his missing presumed-dead father. Along the way, Tim partners up with an adorable, caffeine-addicted, wisecracking Pikachu creature who claims to be a "world-class detective" and also claims to be the former partner of Tim's private-eye father who mysteriously went missing years ago.

"You want to find your Pops. I'm your best bet," says Reynolds' Pikachu in the above commercial. Incidentally, Tim is the only human who can actually understand what Pikachu is saying -- which gives him a leg up in questioning potential witnesses, including other pokemon creatures living in the futuristic metropolis of Ryme City.

Kathryn Newton (from "Blockers") co-stars in the film, playing a local intrepid reporter who travels with a Psyduck creature as her own Pokemon sidekick.

"Pokemon: Detective Pikachu" is coming to theaters everywhere on 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.
