Voice: Welcome to Ryme City, a celebration of the harmony between humans and Pokémon.


Detective Yoshida: Tim, your dad was a legend in this precinct. If you are anything like your dad…
Tim Goodman: I’m not.


Detective Yoshida: I remember you wanted to be a Pokémon trainer when you were young.
Tim Goodman: Yeah, that didn’t really work out.


[Tim picks up a stapler and holds it out when he hears someone in the living room]
Tim Goodman: Someone there? Whoever you are, I know how to use this.
[he sees Pikachu coming out of his hiding place]
Detective Pikachu: Oh, jeez. Here we go. I know you can’t understand me, but put down the stapler, or I will electrocute you.
[Tim drops the stapler in shock]
Tim Goodman: Did you just talk?
Detective Pikachu: Woh, did you just understand me? Oh, my God! You can understand me!
Tim Goodman: Stop!
Detective Pikachu: It has been so long.


Detective Pikachu: So there I was, I woke up with a heavy case of amnesia in the middle of nowhere, the only clue to my past is Harry’s name and address inside this hat. So I made my way to the apartment, and that’s when I found you, and your stapler gun.
[Tim drops the stapler he was holding up to use as weapon]
Tim Goodman: Stop talking! You’re a hallucination!
Detective Pikachu: You’re a hallucination.


[referring to humans]
Detective Pikachu: They try to talk to me all the time. All they hear is, “Pika, pika.”
[to the female passer by]
Tim Goodman: You can hear him, right?
[the woman hears Pikachu]
Detective Pikachu: Pika, pika.
Passer By: Sure. Pika, pika, pika. He’s adorable.
Detective Pikachu: You’re adorable. They can’t understand me, kid.
Tim Goodman: Can no one else hear him?


Tim Goodman: So you’re a talking Pikachu with no memories, who’s addicted to caffeine.
Detective Pikachu: I could stop whenever I want. These are just choices.


[we see Pikachu ordering coffee to a Pokemon]
Detective Pikachu: Another round. Extra shot.
Detective Pikachu: Black as night. Thank you, sweetie.


Detective Pikachu: I don’t know, maybe Harry got in too deep. Mixed up the wrong crowd, that kind of thing.


Tim Goodman: I don’t need a Pokémon, period.
Detective Pikachu: Then what about a world class detective? Because if you want to find your pops, I’m your best bet.


Detective Pikachu: Look, you could talk to humans, I can talk to Pokémon. And if you want to find your pops, we’re going to need each other.
Tim Goodman: No! I don’t need a Pokémon.


Detective Pikachu: [to Tim] We’re going to do this, you and me.


Detective Pikachu: [to Tim] There’s magic, it brought us together, and that magic is called hope!


[referring to papers thrown about all over the office]
Detective Pikachu: Ah, my clues!
Tim Goodman: What is all this?


Detective Pikachu: [to Tim] Harry is still alive, case closed. But still open, until I solve it.


Detective Pikachu: Alright, here it is. Harry faked his own death. Or somebody else faked Harry’s death. Or Harry faked somebody else’s death. That last one doesn’t work at all.
Tim Goodman: No.


Detective Pikachu: Now, obviously I’ve dealt with this putz before, so I’ll just do it again.
[he goes into the middle of the arena]
Tim Goodman: Hey, bud, what are you doing?
Detective Pikachu: I can’t do I when people are watching.
[suddenly a dragon Pokémon enters the arena]
Detective Pikachu: Get me the hell out of here!
[the dragon breaths fire, Pikachu gets into fetal position on the ground]
Detective Pikachu: Pika, pika.


Detective Pikachu: That’s a twist. That’s very twisty.


[as the Pokémon creature they’re chasing after is miming running away]
Detective Pikachu: Get him!
Tim Goodman: He’s barely moving.
Detective Pikachu: Don’t tell him that.
[the Pokémon mimes getting on a bike]
Detective Pikachu: Oh, he’s on a bike. Quick, get in from him!
Tim Goodman: Stop.
[the Pokémon mimes falling off his bike]
Detective Pikachu: Oh, no. he’s going down hard, Tim. Should have worn a helmet.


[to the Pokémon creature they’ve caught]
Detective Pikachu: Listen up, we got ways to make you talk, or mime.
Tim Goodman: Yeah.
Detective Pikachu: So tell us what we want to know.
[the creature starts miming and Pikachu translates.
Detective Pikachu: “Hi. Okay. A can. Shoving. Pushing. My problem is that I push people away and then hate them for leaving.”
Tim Goodman: He’s saying you can shove it.
Detective Pikachu: What? I can shove it! Okay, that’s it. No, we’re switching roles. I’m bad cop, you’re good cop.
Tim Goodman: No, no, no, we’re not cops!
[Pikachu get up and as he goes to hit the creature, he slams into the invisible glass and slides down]
Detective Pikachu: In my head I saw that differently.


[Pikachu is standing on his shoulder]
Tim Goodman: What is that?
Detective Pikachu: Silent but deadly. Apologies, my tummy’s bad from all the coffee.
Tim Goodman: Ew!


[to Psyduck; who we’re told gets explosive headaches]
Detective Pikachu: So let me get this right, we’re forced to listen to this spa music so your head doesn’t explode and kill us all.
Psyduck: Yeah.


[getting the Magikarp off his back and tossing it to the ground]
Detective Pikachu: In my head I saw that differently.


Detective Pikachu: [to Tim] Listen, kid, I know this much. If your dad was here, he would hug you so hard your bones would pop.
