Detective Pikachu Pokemon Cinematic Universe Ryan ReynoldsIt seems that Pokemon: Detective Pikachu cinematic universe might be in full swing before too long as one of the film’s co-writers has hinted at the film having spinoffs.

During an interview with Screen Rant, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu co-writer Benji Samit hinted that there were a lot of ideas floating around to spin off from Detective Pikachu should it be a finical success. He couldn’t directly state what was in the works but did say that, given the size of the universe, there were a lot of ways that a spinoff could go:

There are a lot of ideas. As we said, the universe is massive in size in terms of Pokémon and locations. Even within Ryme City itself, we’ve only scratched the surface of that. There’s a lot of magic in this universe, so there’s plenty of places for it to go.

From the look of things, the co-writer of Pokemon: Detective Pikachu has an understanding of how big the world of Pokemon is!

Here is a plot synopsis for Pokemon: Detective Pikachu:

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

Directed by Rob Letterman from a script he co-wrote with Dan Hernandez & Benji Samit, Derek Connolly, and Nicole Perlman, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular pocket monster, Justice Smith as Tim, Kathryn Newton as Lucy, and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe as Lt. Yoshida.

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu will be released in theaters on May 10, 2019.
