Aiding in the investigation is Harry's former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wisecracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself.

Let me begin by saying that this movie was marvellous. This fantasy/mystery movie will please all Pokémon lovers out there! Ryan Reynolds had done an amazing job voicing Pikachu and adding that little kick of humour, even if it was inconsistent. Pikachu was as if he was over caffeinated and it sometimes threw the tempo of the movie off a bit. I think Pikachu would definitely have that sort of personality, but I felt that the rest of the movie went by really slowly. A few changes to the story to make it a bit more interesting, but there are no complaints other than that! I would rate it a 3 out of 5 stars.

Was a really fun watch that really hit the spot. I am not really into the whole Pokemon thing, but the way the movie was constructive was just well made, great cinematography and I liked the diversity that mixed race Justine Smith was used as the lead character. The movie reminded me a bit about Zootopia (2016) as certain story-elements resonate strongly with that movie. I probably won't re-watch but glad I gave it a shot.

I liked the movie. It had a lot of action, it was a hilarious, and it also had family relationships as part of the storyline. This movie was like watching the pokemon shows that we grew up with from our childhood back in the day. Plus I have also seen this movie twice now and it was Awesome. Ryan Reynolds was hilarious as detective Pikachu with all the catchphrases and line in the movie. Plus the chemistry he had with Kathryn Newton and Justice Smith was pretty awesome in the movie.

Maybe you have to be someone who's played the video games and know the stories, but I was unimpressed. Ryan Reynolds is sharp and funny, as always, delivering lines with impeccable comic timing, and the animation was good, but otherwise I found little to keep me interested.

If you wanted a pokemon based on the cartoon renditions of the video games and animated movies - this live action edition of the pokemon world is going to through that desire into hyperdrive! I really hope more movies come out and explore more of the world and even more pokemon, because this was so well done and I wanted to see more of Ryme City!

This is the Pokemon movie we've all been waiting for. While it might be predictable in certain places, and the acting is occasionally questionable for a few of the side characters, Warner Bros. and Nintendo absolutely NAIL the design and feel of the world, and Ryan Reynolds shines as Pikachu. I buy every moment of the film and do not question any of it, as a fan of the series. Here's hoping we get more carefully managed and fun films like this.

I had little knowledge of what the early pokemon stories were all about but I like
action/adventure movies so I gave it a try.They did good job getting me up to speed as
the movie progressed without overly explaining characters and early story lines.
It's really a lot fun to watch and great for any age.

A fun movie for the whole family! The CGI was really good and the Pokemon looked fantastic, although the plot was a little lacking.
