We saw Detective Pikachu, we laughed, we cried, we left the theater with a smile. And now it’s your turn.
Thanks to a mysterious Twitter account known only as InspectrPikachu, you can watch an hour and a half of the adorable Pokémon in action before the movie even comes out. We don’t usually like to share unauthorized leaks, but this version of Pikachu should not be missed.
Okay, it’s a clever viral marketing ploy, but don’t lie: you can’t help but laugh. And keep watching. And watch a little longer. That’s an hour and a half of this energetic dancing Pikachu, and we can’t say we regret watching one minute of it. Even the voice of Detective Pikachu himself, Ryan Reynolds, got in on the act.
