As the trailer of the much-anticipated Hollywood film ‘Pokémon: Detective Pikachu’ released on Monday, Pokémon fans are buzzing about it. In the trailer, the Pokémon, who was originally known to speak nothing other than “Pika Pika”, can be heard speaking in a human voice.
‘Deadpool’ actor Ryan Reynolds has lent his voice to the 3D Animated Pikachu, and the hairy version of the cartoon character is winning over the Internet. The actor announced the trailer release through an Instagram post where he shared a part of the trailer. He captioned the post as saying, “I think we all knew I’d wind up as a miniature detective repeatedly saying the same two words. Just didn’t think it would be this soon. #PikaPika#detectivepikachu”
