'Detective Pikachu' Is Starring In A Live Action Pokémon Movie

Why, God, why!?

Nintendo have really nailed it with this second wave of Pokémon fever.

Step One: take over the world through augmented reality.

Step Two: announce the first live-action Pokémon film ever.

Step Three: reveal that it's basically CSI: Pikachu.

That's right, the first live-action Pokémon film will feature Pikachu as a detective helping to find some dude's father. Apparently there was a Detective Pikachu game that was only released in Japan that it's based on. We don't really know.

There's no clue as to who will be in it or when it will come out, but rest assured, it's going to be freaky as hell. More news as we have it, trainers.
