Harry Goodman (Japanese: ハリー・グッドマン Harry Goodman) is the father of Tim Goodman, one of the main characters in Pokémon Detective Pikachu.
In the games
In the beginning of Detective Pikachu, Harry can be seen driving away from the Pokémon Comprehensive Laboratory just before getting hit by a projectile and blown off a bridge.
In the movie
Harry Goodman used to live with his family in the countryside, but when his wife passed away, he moved to Ryme City and buried himself in workd, leaving his son Tim Goodman to live with Tim's grandmother. At one point, he offered Tim to move to Ryme City with him, but Tim refused.
As one of the greatest detectives of Ryme City, Harry was recruited by Howard Clifford to find and capture Mewtwo. But when he realized that Howard wanted to use Mewtwo for evil, he and his partner Pikachu helped Mewtwo escape. When Harry left the facility, his car was ambushed by Howard's Greninja and crashed over a bridge. An severely injured Harry crawled himself out of the burning vehicle and realized that Mewtwo also came to his rescue. In order to save Harry, Mewtwo fused Harry into his Pikachua and wiped his memory in process, which resulted in the birth of Detective Pikachu.
After Tim and Detective Pikachua thwarted Howard's scheme, Mewtwo unmerged and restored Harry back to his human self.
Harry Goodman is portrayed by Ryan Reynolds.
| Pikachu is Harry's partner Pokémon. Harry once used it to battle and defeat a Charizard in an underground arena. When Harry was dying from a car crash, Pikachu volunteered to have Mewtwo merge Harry into itself, resulting in Detective Pikachu.
None of Pikachu's moves are known, but it can be presumed that it shares Detective Pikachu's movepool.
