Pokemons are joining us in the real world for a new Warner Bros. film, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, and Deadpool will be playing the part of the world’s most favored Pokemon, Pikachu.

Ryan Reynolds will play the animated character throughout the film as he assists Tim, who is also the only human that can understand what the yellow fur ball is actually saying.The first trailer for the highly anticipated film dropped recently and within the 2 minutes of the trailer, Pikachu definitely catches the attention of his viewers. Justice Smith, from The Get Down and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, plays the role of Tim who has lost all hope of becoming a Pokemon trainer, and when his father goes missing, his life really takes a turn for the worse. That’s when Reynolds’ Detective Pikachu appears. Much like in Dr. Dolittle, Tim is the only one that can understand his furry friend. While everyone else just hears Pikachu saying “Pika”, Tim hears Reynolds’ voice clearly.

The trailer introduces viewers to the live-action Pokémon world, where Goodman and Detective Pikachu embark on an action-packed quest to find Goodman’s missing father. CGI versions of Charizard, Psyduck and Mr. Mime also appear in the trailer. Pokémon Detective Pikachu arrives May 11, 2019 and was based on the Nintendo 3DS game of the same name. In addition to Reynolds, the cast includes Ken Watanabe, Bill Nighy, Chris Geere, Rita Ora, Suki Waterhouse and Karan Soni. Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Goosebumps) directed the film.
