The two team up to try and find out what has happened to Harry Goodman and to unravel the mystery before them.


Sorting the Ultra HD Premium tag Pokemon Detective Pikachu comes to Ultra HD Blu-ray with HDR and Dolby Atmos. The film has all the colors that allow it to pop as Pikachu practically jumps off the screen with his adorable vibrant yellow. While there are a lot of night scenes never the less it allows the deep dark blacks of the HDR to shine. You won’t have any complaints in the PQ department for a film of this nature. It looks great. The soundtrack is punchy and the Atmos is immersive and thus it handles the track quite well.


All of the special features are housed on the blu-ray disc of the release and not that of the Ultra HD 4K disc.
