ROL­LICK­ING fam­i­ly­ori­ented fan­tasy ad­ven­ture. Tim Good­man (Jus­tice Smith) learns that his es­tranged fa­ther, De­tec­tive Harry Good­man, has been killed in a car ac­ci­dent in Ryme City. The or­phaned 21-year-old trav­els to the me­trop­o­lis, es­tab­lished by bil­lion­aire Howard Clif­ford (Bill Nighy) as the only place where humans and Poké­mons co-ex­ist in har­mony.

Tim meets Ryme City po­lice de­tec­tive Yoshida (Ken Watan­abe), who pro­vides a set of keys to Harry’s apart­ment.

In­side, Tim dis­cov­ers his fa­ther’s Poke­mon, Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds), pic­tured, and a vial of a nox­ious liq­uid, which trans­forms docile Poke­mon into crazed preda­tors. Cub TV re­porter Lucy Stevens (Kathryn New­ton) is on the case and her finger of sus­pi­cion points to Howard Clif­ford’s son Roger (Chris Geere).
