It appears just yesterday that Detective Pikachu earned a spot as the second most profitable game movie ever made. That position didn’t last long. Warcraft held the title of most profitable computer game film grossing $433 million. Detective Pikachu missed the record by $4.5 million in 2019.
Last year criminologist Pikachu was the best-received computer game film, with a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 67%. As the main “new” film on the list, it won over both Tomb Raider and Rampage by an astounding 15%. Presently, the film can wear the most profitable crown.
The question is done Detective Pikachu maintain its spot at the top with the opening of Sonic Hedgehog. The answer is No – it did not. In January, Sonic had a strong weekend, having $57 million on the box office for the first three days, beating Warner Bros. and Legendary’s Pokemon: Detective Pikachu which garnered over $54 million and has become the best opening on the box office for a video game adaptation.
However all is not lost the there is still high demand for this sad detective and merchandise for plush is available on Amazon.

Ryan Reynolds as Detective Pikachu, a world-class detective and exceptionally smart talking Pikachu whom only Tim can understand. Reynolds performed both the voice and facial motion capture for the character. Reynolds also played Harry Goodman, Tim’s missing father and a veteran Ryme City police detective.
Theory: Detective pikachu is Ash’s pikachu. … The first point is the first interaction with detective pikachu and The main character. In it, we hear pikachu say “It has been so long.” It is often regarded as a joke in the pokemon community that Ash can know everything that pikachu is saying from a simple “pika pika”.
At about 1 hour and 45 minutes, the action-packed Detective Pikachu will keep kids ages 6 and above entertained. I would recommend Pokémon: Detective Pikachu for kids ages 8 and up, based on the scary content. However, I think kids 6 and up would be fine, if they are not easily frightened by character violence.
On selecting which Pokemon to include in the film, Letterman said he worked with designers and the Pokemon company. Though the Ryme City’s population comprises of Pokemon from different generations, Letterman said first-generation characters were a must.
“The one thing I discovered quickly was that the fans aren’t just kids,” he said. “There’s fans on the crew in their 20s and early 30s, so we picked a lot of first-generation Pokemon so they can connect with this and relive their childhood.”
From Charizard to Greninja (and Squirrel, Cubone, Gyarados and Mr. Mime), here’s what to know about the different Pokémon in Detective Pikachu.
Before we get into that ending, allow me to summarize the plot of Detective Pikachu, the first-ever live-action Pokémon film which is loosely based on the 2016 Pokémon video game of the same name. Tim Goodman (played by The Get Down‘s Justice Smith) is a 21-year-old kid who gives up his dream of being a Pokémon trainer after his mother dies and his father—Harry—goes missing. Tim is told by the Ryme City police that his dad died in a car accident. While cleaning out his dad’s apartment, Tim discovers a talking Pikachu who sounds exactly like Ryan Reynolds.
As we soon learn, Tim is the only one who can understand this Pikachu. Everyone else just hears an adorable little fuzzball saying “Pika Pika!” Pikachu has an amnesia, but he tells Tim that he suspects he was Harry’s Pokémon, and he further suspects that Tim’s father is still alive. His suspicions are confirmed when a holographic recreation of the car crash reveals that Mewtwo, one of the strongest Pokémons, captured Harry and erased Pikachu’s memory. With the help of a reporter named Lucy Stevens (Kathryn Newton), Pikachu and Tim set off to rescue Tim’s dad.
Here’s what happened: Mewtwo has the ability to put a human consciousness inside a Pokémon body. Howard Clifford (actor Billy Nighy), the rich but disabled founder of Ryme City, has a secret evil plan to use this power—along with his “R” serum—to force every human in Ryme City to fuse with their Pokémon. But Mewtwo, unlike Howard, is not evil. That car crash that nearly killed Tim’s dad was actually caused by Greninja. Mewtwo saved Harry’s life but putting Harry’s soul inside the body of the Pikachu. (At the Pikachu’s suggestion.)
Netflix has released a new, CGI animated version of the very first Pokémon movie. Dubbed Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, the remake of the 1998 film follows Ash and friends as they get wrapped up in a legendary pokémon’s quest for revenge.
Much like the original film, Evolution is the story of human-made pokémon Mewtwo. The story is set within the context of the popular animated show, including Ash, Pikachu, and Team Rocket, and it involves a lot of clones. The first trailer for the movie retreads familiar ground — from Mewtwo’s creation to the trainer competition that draws Ash and pals into the conflict in the first place.
For fans of the original, the new CGI style might be.. well, let’s just say a little jarring. The hyper-realistic pokémon of Detective Pikachu (in all their computer-generated, sometimes horrifying glory) have disappeared. Instead, Evolution takes a turn to Pixar meets Johnny Jonny Yes Papa; Misty by way of a llama.
