It's here! The first trailer of 'Detective Pikachu' introduces Ryan Reynolds in a rather different avatar- as Pikachu!

The 'Deadpool' star features as the titular character in the first-ever live-action Pokemon movie. 

The plot, which takes place in Ryme City, revolves around Tim (Justice Smith), a young man who stumbles upon Detective Pikachu. Tim is the only person who can understand him and the two then team up to solve the mystery of Tim`s missing father.

Reynolds took to Twitter to share the trailer, writing, "I think we all knew I`d wind up as a miniature detective repeatedly saying the same two words. Just didn`t think it`d be this soon. #PikaPika #DetectivePikachu"
