Hopefully, you don’t find this new post misleading, but I really don’t know what to call these one-minute videos for Pokémon: Detective Pikachu. I mean, they’re too long to be considered TV spots and too late in the game to be considered teasers, so “trailer” is pretty much the word I’m going with here. Anyway, long story short here is that we have a new one of those for the upcoming film.
This one feels more is kind of a mix between what we got in the first two trailers. It has some of the scenes and beats from that second trailer and the music from that first one. It starts off with a scene from when Pikachu and Psyduck are in the car together, and after giving us the lowdown on Psyduck’s deadly psychic tendencies, he agrees to massage the poor duck’s foot. Scattered about are plenty of other fun scenes all culminating in an underwear joke that actually kinda works.
“The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.”
