Video: POKÉMON Detective Pikachu stars and director play “Know Your Pokémon”

The highly anticipated film POKÉMON Detective Pikachu is now playing in theaters around the world. As you’ve probably heard by now, the live-action movie stars Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, and Ryan Reynolds as the voice of Detective Pikachu. You won’t want to miss the exciting adventure as Tim Goodman and Pikachu explore Ryme City and uncover the mysteries of this Pokémon-filled world.

Detective Pikachu Stars & Director Play “Know Your Pokemon”

In honor of Pokémon Detective Pikachu making its way into theaters this week, Warner Bros. brought us to Tokyo to get an early look at director Rob Letterman’s film and chat with stars Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, and Kathryn Newton. All well and good, but I had an ulterior motive: To find the best potential Pokémon trainer of the bunch, the very best, like no one ever was.

To that end, I sprung a Pokémon Pop Quiz on the cast and crew of Detective Pikachu to see if they knew their stuff and were up to snuff on all things Pokémon. Keep an eye out for more insider content in both cast and crew interviews and chats from the red carpet premiere with our own Steve Weintraub, but in the meantime feel free to see how well you know your Pokémon! And be sure to see Pokémon Detective Pikachu in theaters starting May 10th.
