Pokémon Detective Pikachu is a 2019 American mystery film directed by Rob Letterman. Based on the Pokémon franchise, the film is a loose adaptation of the 2016 video game Detective Pikachu. It was written by Letterman, Dan Hernandez, Benji Samit and Derek Connolly, from a story by Hernandez, Samit and Nicole Perlman, and produced by Legendary Pictures and Toho. It was the first live-action Pokémon film and the first live-action film based on a Nintendo game property since Super Mario Bros. (1993).
Ryan Reynolds stars as the voice and facial motion capture of Pikachu, with Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Suki Waterhouse, Omar Chaparro, Chris Geere, Ken Watanabe and Bill Nighy in live-action roles. The plot follows a former Pokémon trainer Tim Goodman and the Pokémon creatures as they attempt to solve the mysterious disappearance of Tim's father, Harry.
