Said to be released on May 10, 2019, Ryan Reynolds is said to have the main role as voice acting the iconic yellow and red pokemon Pikachu. Reynolds is most known for his role as Deadpool, which he pulled off well in both Deadpool and Deadpool 2. Those two films made a whopping $363.1 million and $301 million respectively. 

The new film, “Pokemon Detective Pikachu,” is an animation, adventure, and fantasy movie, made for families, couples, and friends to watch. This isn’t your average Pikachu, as, in this movie, Pikachu is a detective who can talk and respond, although only one boy can understand him. Other actors that will make an appearance during the film include Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, and Ken Watanabe.

The movie is based on the following premise: a missing detective, with his son trying to find him. The son works with Detective Pikachu to find out about the missing father’s whereabouts. During their adventure, they find themselves in Modern Metropolis, where humans and pokemon are working together on the daily. As they continue their work, they find a group of outcast pokemon that uncover a shocking part of the mystery that may destroy the peacefulness between Pokemon and humans.

Ethan Thompson, a sophomore of Wayne Hills, is excited about the film: “Okay, one because the live action looks amazing and I’ve been waiting for a good live action for a while now and two, Ryan Reynolds is playing Pikachu. It’s going to be fun and has that different aspect that you wouldn’t expect a pokemon.”

Many of the future viewers are excited about different things that are mentioned in the film; Ethan is most excited about “Ryan Reynolds. No, I’m kidding. I think the plot line sounded interesting and the condition of Pokemon, I think it’s going to come out nice. I think it’s the greatest idea ever. His voice is a pretty serious voice but the way he does it makes it funny and I think it’s gonna come out good.”

Tommy Graham, another sophomore of Wayne Hills said he wants to see the film, “because my friends are hyping it up for me plus the pokemon look well-done and it might turn out to be a great movie.”

Many people are bringing those they share the common interest with, for Ethan, that is his friends who enjoy playing the iPhone video game Pokemon Go.

Everyone has a favorite or one they dislike the least, and when asked about which pokemon was his favorite and which he relates to, Ethan replied with, “Mudkip and for that reason, it’s the first pokemon I’ve ever known about and was the first one I got as a trading card and it’s been my favorite ever since.” Tommy already knew the answer to the question as he did not hesitate to put his opinion in. “Okay- favorite pokemon- Zorua, Ever since I was a little kid, I always thought he was a pretty cool pokemon and how he has a really cool looking evolution. [Relating to a pokemon] I’m going to go with Growlithe because I don’t think he’s frequently picked and he’s the underdog since he doesn’t look powerful until he evolves.” Tommy’s answer was rather comical, “Arceus because I am the God of this world.”

Countries known to be locations for this movie so far include both America and Japan; companies partaking in the film include Nintendo, Legendary Entertainment, and The Pokemon Company. The artist, Arvalis, who did a realistic version of Bulbasaur years ago when drawing art digitally, is now in charge of Pokemon designs in the Detective Pikachu movie. Pokemon said to be featured in the movie include Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Bulbasaur, Mr. Mime, Lucario, Dodrio, Charmander, Braviary, Psyduck, Emolga, Pancham, Greninja, Ruffet, Squirtle, and Charizard.
