‘Detective Pikachu’ is a fun filled movie with a mystery to be solved. This movie came out May 10th.

‘Detective Pikachu’ started out as a spin-off movie of the real Pikachu. In the game, Detective Pikachu helps Harry Goodman, father of Tim Goodman, to solve mysteries for Ryme City. After a case goes wrong Pikachu needs Tim’s help to solve it.

Throughout the movie, a friendship is built between the two main characters Tim Goodman and Pikachu. The two unlikely friends go against the biggest corporation in Ryme City. Before the final battle, the partners have to go through many obstacles. Even in the darker times, though, the pair looks out for each other. The movie is filled with everyone’s favorite Pokémon.

Overall, I really enjoyed this movie because of the comedic moments of Ryan Reynolds and the friendship built between Pikachu and Tim. It took a turn towards the end that I wasn’t expecting, but it finished very well. I hope they come out with a sequel soon.

I recommend this movie to anyone who has grown up watching and playing the Pokémon franchise. It’s a nice spin on a classic TV show.
