Tracking his every move.
We may well have just received the very first trailer for the upcoming film Pokémon The Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution, but there’s another 2019 Poké-movie also getting a little bit of love as we approach the new year.
Remember Detective Pikachu? Of course you do. The film is set to arrive in cinemas on 10th May 2019, bringing Pikachu and the gang to life in a way we’ve never seen before. Ryan Reynolds, who plays the comical and adorable Pikachu in the film, has shared this image of himself covered in little dots – the dots are used alongside motion capture technology to place any expressions and gestures he makes onto the animated Pikachu’s face.

If you want to see how this turns out for the final product – and also because we can’t help wanting to watch it all over again – we’ve included the official trailer for you below. If you’re interested, you can also check out a collection of character models and props which were used in the film, spotted at Legendary Entertainment’s headquarters.
Ryan Reynolds has uploaded a behind the scenes image of him as Detective Pikachu in the upcoming Pokemon Detective Pikachu Movie. The image was shared by the actor on Twitter which shows him wearing facial recognition technology to turn him into the adorable Pokemon detective. The movie will arrive in cinemas on the 10th of May.
Two very different Pokémon films arriving in the same year. 2019’s going to be a good one, huh?
