In the trailer for Detective Pikachu, released Tuesday, viewers got to hear the talking voice of Pikachu, dubbed by "Deadpool" actor Ryan Reynolds.
The clip also showed a glimpse of beloved pocket monsters Charizard, Bulbasaur, Jigglypuff, Psyduck, Mr. Mime, and the place where they coexist with humans, Ryme City.
“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” kicks off with 21-year-old Tim Goodman's (Justice Smith) journey to find his missing father Harry. Along Tim's search, he comes across the adorable, intelligent, wise-cracking Pikachu, who also happened to be his dad's former Pokémon partner.
The film, directed by Rob Letterman -- the man behind "Goosebumps" and "Monsters Vs. Aliens" -- will "electrocute" audiences at the big screen on May 10, 2019.
