A new TV spot for Detective Pikachu has been released, featuring a lot more Psyduck.
As Pikachu rides in a small car with human companions Tim and Lucy, he shares the backseat with Lucy’s Psyduck. In an effort to appease the powerful psychic Pokemon, the passengers listen to relaxing spa music while the Psyduck insists that Pikachu massage his webbed feet. Eventually, the Ryan Reynolds-voiced character complies.
Other clips in the new trailer detail Pikachu’s addiction to caffeine as he constantly drinks cups of coffee to get his fix and informs a pleasant Ludicolo to prepare a piping hot cup “as black as night.”
Directed by Rob Letterman from a script written by Dan Hernandez and Benji Samit, Detective Pikachu stars Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Ken Watanabe and the voice of Ryan Reynolds.
The film opens in theaters on May 10.
