In today’s bizarre casting news, Ryan Reynolds is set to portray an electric mouse in the big-screen adaptation of the wildly popular Japanese Pokémon gaming franchise.

The film, Detective Pikachu, will be the first non-animated portrayal of the iconic characters since the franchise began more than 20 years ago, and this brand-new trailer speaks for itself.

The story will revolve around Pikachu teaming up with Ash Ketchum to find his missing father. Reynolds will be joined by Justice Smith (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as Tim and Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies) as Lucy. 

Better catch ’em all, Reynolds.
