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 Pokémon 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.
