When renowned detective Harry Goodman goes missing from Ryme City, a hotspot for human/Pokemón cohabitation, under suspicious circumstances, his 21-year-old son, Tim (Justice Smith, 'The Get Down'), sets out to find him and bring him home. Tim is no stranger to loss, having given up Pokemón training following the death of his mother and disappearance of his father. Insistent upon helping with the investigation is Harry's partner-in-crime, Detective Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds, 'Deadpool'), whom Harry is surprised to discover he can communicate with perfectly. The search for Tim's dad leads them on a whirlwind investigation involving the legendary Pokemón Mewtoo, yet hanging over their search is the pressure they know they'll face when the leader of Ryme City, Howard Clifford (Bill Nighy, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest'), passes the baton on to his far less tolerant son, Roger (Chris Geere, 'You're the Worst'). Aided by young and determined journalist Lucy Stevens (Kathryn Newton, 'Big Little Lies'), Tim and Detective Pikachu set out to discover the truth behind Harry Goodman's disappearance. 'Detective Pikachu' delves into the world of Pokemón in this family-friendly adventure directed by Rob Letterman ('Monsters vs Aliens').
