Everybody wants me, I know it.
Tim travels to Ryme City to collect Harry's belongings. There, he meets Lucy Stevens, a columnist who is suspicious of Harry's death. Brushing her off, Tim visits Harry's apartment. There, he meets with Pikachu, who somehow can talk and Tim understands him. When Tim accidentally released a purple gas which was inhaled by a party of Aipom. The gas influence makes the party crazy and attacks Tim and Pikachu. 

They both managed to outrun the mad Aipoms. Later, Tim learns that Pikachu is actually Harry's partner but Pikachu seems to lost his memory of what had happened to Harry. After consulting Lucy, the four of them starts to investigate Harry's death.

Their investigation brings them to meet people, pokemon and places and along the way, their young relationship was put into test.

Will the four of them able to solve the mystery involving Harry's death?

Plot: 4.8/ 5.0 Be mindful not to fall asleep during the movie, or you might miss some points that will help to solve the mystery. The movie has a slow start and takes its own sweet time to build up, but the twists thrown into it makes it entertaining. 

Cast: 4.8/ 5.0 Every character played their part beautifully, especially Pikachu & Ryan Reynolds.

Will I watch it again: I would, with my nephews and nieces.
