Ryan Reynolds is a Pokemon in the new ‘Detective Pikachu’ trailer and people are actually into it

He says a lot more than just 'pika pika'

A new trailer for Detective Pikachu has just been released, and it features Ryan Reynolds voicing Pikachu.

For some reason these disturbingly realistic live action Pokémon actually do a great job at combining humour with the classic anime-style action we all know and love. We get the same sort of dark, deadpan humour that Reynolds delivers in the Deadpool series, but instead of a tough superhero, he’s voicing the cute, kitty-like character Pikachu.

Check out this first PIKA peek and people’s reactions to the film below.
