DETECTIVE PIKACHU is a fantasy comedy adventure in which a teenager partners with a Pikachu to uncover a plot to destroy the harmony between the Pokemon and humans.

Threat

In a series of fantastical action scenes, both human and Pokemon characters face danger as they are chased by villains and are caught up in what appears to be an earthquake. There are also fighting scenes in which the heroes are thrown around, but the action is unrealistic, without injury detail, and its intensity is punctuated by humour and a focus on the heroes handling the threat by being resourceful in finding ways to escape their predicaments. In one scene, a car plunges off a bridge and crashes; apart from a brief, undetailed shot of a human character crawling from the wreckage, the fate of the occupants remains a mystery.

There is very mild rude humour with references to 'peeing' and a human character's 'nakedness'. There is very mild innuendo in references to a character's flirting technique and a very oblique drug reference relating to a fantastical gaseous substance which features as part of the film's storyline. There is also very mild bad language ('hell', 'Jeez', 'God', 'damn') and a line in which a character exclaims "Oh sh..".
