Why We're Watching
A 20-year-old beloved video game franchise, a live-action adaptation, and Ryan Reynolds. When you mix these ingredients together, you get POKÉMON Detective Pikachu. What else do you need to know? … Okay, admittedly, there’s a lot we need to know. Why can Tim (Justice Smith) understand this Pikachu? What happened to Tim’s father? And, most of all, where the Flareon did Mewtwo come from? If you know anything about this worldwide phenomenon, you know that a live-action POKÉMON movie is kind of a big deal. But, despite all our questions, whether it’s the eye-popping visual effects, the surprisingly emotional plot, or Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu – being equal parts saucy and adorable – there are so many reasons why POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is overdue!
