Based on the game of the same name, Detective Pikachu is centered on Tim Goodman (Justice Smith), whose detective father has recently gone missing. With the aid of his father’s PokÃ©mon partner, Pikachu — with whom only Tim can communicate — Tim sets out on “a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery” of his father’s disappearance.The silly plot, coupled with the totally charming trailer, has ignited a bit of a firestorm on Twitter. Turns out, folks are pretty excited for this one, and they’re already meme-ing about it! Here are some of our favorite reactions.
Jigglypuff keeps it in perspective.

Even non-PokÃ©mon fans are hype.Â
me going to see Detective Pikachu even though I don’t watch/catch/live/breathe Pokemon (sorry) bc the world is so dark and spending $20 plus popcorn plus marketing tie-in merch money for a 2-hour cuddly ray of light respite from the chaos sounds worth the price right about now pic.twitter.com/LZJdG1lPp6
