REPORT: ‘POKÉMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU’ Test Screening Received Extremely Positive Reactions “Jam-packed with easter eggs, good performances, and a great script, DetectivePikachu wowed the audience with what seems like the first legitimately great video game film. Keep in mind, this was just one screening, but the early results are very promising. A lot of the praise goes to Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu, who apparently knocked it out of the park. Expect the usual charm he brings as he portrays arguably the most recognizable Pokémon ever. It is also said he has great chemistry with the lead Justice Smith, who plays Tim Goodman, the son of the missing detective. The CGI is not finished, but Pikachu’s look was apparently very well done. As was previously reported, all of the creatures will look hyper-realistic, similar to Rocket Racoon in the Guardians films. Speaking of Pokémon, we will not divulge exactly which ones made an appearance but expect some GREAT surprises that will have hardcore fans foaming at the mouth. The film avoids relying on fan service and instead focuses on telling a mystery in a unique, neon-lit world where Pokemon and humans live in harmony.“ Trailer Tracker is also saying that we’ll get the first trailer next week.
