As the name of the move suggests, the movie is based around Pokemon's most recognisable figure, Pikachu.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad, a smaller militant group, said Monday's rocket fire was revenge for the Israeli incursion. Gaza's rulers Hamas and the smaller group Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the rocket barrage.

The new live-action Pokemon movie depicts Pikachu with a noticeable coat of yellow fur, giving him the appearance of a stuffed animal. "Just didn't think it'd be this soon", Reynolds tweeted when sharing the trailer. However, as it seems, only Tim can understand Pikachu and everyone else in the city can only hear "Pika!" Also starring Justice Smith as Tim; Kathryn Newton as Lucy, a junior reporter on her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe.

The first trailer arrived Monday and the film, helmed by "Goosebumps" director Rob Letterman, is set to hit theaters May 10, 2019.
