New Detective Pikachu Teaser Shows Off Pokemon Like Squirtle, Treecko, Purrloin, and More

Tickets are now on sale too.

Can you believe we're just a month away from Detective Pikachu? We sure can't. Today, the voice of Mr. Detective Pikachu himself, Ryan Reynolds, tweeted out a new video of his "audition tape." The video is actually anything but: it's a prolonged look at a number of Pokemon that will appear in the upcoming movie.

Jigglypuff, Pancham, Magikarp, Sneasel, Treecko, Purrloin, Charmander, Squirtle, Flareon, and many more all make appearances. We also get a glimpse of Pikachu in a car seat(!), confirming with the Psyduck seated next to him that the reason they have to listen to soothing spa music is so that Psyduck's headaches don't cause an explosion. Psyduck affirms this with an enthusiastic "Psyduck!"

Actor Justice Smith, who co-stars alongside the Reynolds-voiced Pikachu, expressed his own excitement on Twitter today shortly after the "screen test" teaser went live. "ok also can I just say like I know I'm in the movie and im biased but seriously the pokemon movie looks so frikin [sic] good," writes Smith on Twitter. "[L]ike I wanted this movie for so long like since I was a kid and I honestly couldn't care less that im in it im just likE WOAH LOOK AT CHARIZARD HE HAS SCALES [sic]."

Many Pokemon fans around the world, I imagine, feel just as excited as Smith does. (I mean, c'mon, did you see that Purrloin? I want one.) Tickets are also on sale now for Detective Pikachu, ahead of its release next month. And there's also a limited edition Detective Pikachu Pokemon card for attendees, while supplies last. Here's to hoping it doesn't sell out as fast as, say, that other movie that's already breaking records. Detective Pikachu will be in theaters on May 10.
