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. He is portrayed by Ryan Reynolds.

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. His whereabouts are unknown, but Mewtwo assures Tim that he is still alive.

Two months prior to the beginning of Detective Pikachu, Harry and his Pikachu previously went to visit John Waals to ask about R. He investigated Fine Park, an amusement park in Ryme City, in which he was attacked by a man with a Skorupi. Harry has also previously investigated a warehouse in Ryme Wharf.

In the movie

Harry and Tim Goodman

Harry used to live with his family in the countryside, but when his wife passed away, he moved to Ryme City and buried himself in work, leaving his son Tim 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. When he realized that Howard wanted to use Mewtwo for evil, he and his partner Pikachu helped Mewtwo escape. After Harry left the facility, his car was ambushed by Howard's Greninja and crashed over a bridge. A severely injured Harry crawled out of the burning vehicle and realized that Mewtwo also came to his rescue. In order to save Harry, Mewtwo fused Harry into his Pikachu and wiped his memory in the process, which resulted in the birth of Detective Pikachu.

After Tim and Detective Pikachu thwarted Howard's scheme, Mewtwo restored Harry back to his human self.

Main article: Detective Pikachu (character)

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 the creation of Detective Pikachu.

None of Pikachu's moves are known, but it can be presumed that it shares Detective Pikachu's movepool (Volt Tackle and Thunderbolt).
