After his father Harry's mysterious death, Tim Goodman heads to his dad's apartment in Ryme City, a community where people and Pokémon peacefully coexist. There he finds Detective Pikachu (a Pokémon he can understand!) who can't remember anything except that he was Harry's partner.

As Tim and Detective Pikachu track down clues in an adventure across the city, they uncover a shocking plot—which could not only destroy the Ryme City community but also threaten people and Pokémon everywhere. It's up to them to get to the bottom of their mystery—and to stop the scheme before it's too late!
