90s kids everywhere were (mostly) delighted to find out that Pikachu is getting his own live-action film.
The trailer for Detective Pikachu landed on our screens this week and the response has been incredibly positive so far.
The Pokémon character will be voiced by none other than Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds, while Justice Smith will star as Tim Goodman, a man who dreams of becoming a Pokémon master.
The story follows Tim as he discovers he’s the only one who can understand what Pikachu is saying and they both embark on an adventure to find Tim’s missing father.
The reaction to the new live-action cast of Pokémon has been fairly positive - though not everyone was happy to find out they're actually fluffy…

I have a lot of questions about literally every single texturing decision being made in Detective Pikachu, but this one feels the most egregious. JIGGLYPUFF IS NOT FURRY!! pic.twitter.com/JEd8yxel7h
