The story begins when the detective Harry Goodman disappears in a very mysterious way. His 21-year-old son Tim tries to find out what happened with his father. With him is his famous Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu, which is an adorable creature with an acid sense of humour. Finding that they are specially equipped to communicate with each other, Tim and Pikachu will join forces on a thrilling adventure to reveal the tangled mystery. They will chase clues together through the streets of Ryme City, a modern metropolis where humans and Pokémons live side by side in a live-action world, and they will discover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.
