For media educator

Pokémon is originally a Japanese product series that originated from a Nintendo game released in 1996. Since then, Pokémon have had adventures in numerous other games, TV series, trading cards and toys. The Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie creates an even more realistic and multidimensional image of the familiar pocket monsters. In the movie, Pokémon and humans live in perfect harmony in their shared big city.

The main character Tim, who is critical of Pokémon, finds a surprising partner in Pikachu. The themes of the film are friendship, cooperation and the courage to do even radical things for an important cause. Pokémon Detective Pikachu is suitable even for young viewers within the age limit; it contains some fast-paced fight scenes and suspense, but is still mainly warm-hearted and humorous. However, the humor may not be fully understood by someone who is not familiar with the world of Pokémon and the individual characteristics of the creatures. (Source
