Detective Pikachu isn't the only official Pokémon movie on the block. In fact, there have been 24 such efforts, and the mother of them all, Pokémon: The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back is transforming from a 1998 animated cartoon to a July 2019 CGI remake. 

After the Ryan Reynolds action comedy Pokémon: Detective Pikachu starts arriving in theatres worldwide from May, 1998's Pokémon: The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back is receiving a re-release in Japan.
