New Detective Pikachu trailer features foot rub for Psyduck

The latest Detective Pikachu trailer finds Pikachu giving Psyduck a foot rub for reasons we don't quite understand – we thought its head hurt, not its feet.

The latest Detective Pikachu trailer finds Pikachu and Psyduck sitting in the back of a car as they're being driven somewhere in Ryme City. And wouldn't you know it, that damn Psyduck wants a foot massage. 

"Put that down. I am NOT giving you a massage," Pikachu persists.

"Pssyyyyy," Psyduck beckons, flipping his adorable duck foot in Pikachu's face.

The trailer is set to The Turtles' "Happy Together," because it definitely seems like Pikachu ends up loving hanging out with this crazy little duck. The previous trailer, which was a heartwarming clip set to Louis Armstrong's "What A Wonderful World," also heavily featured Psyduck as Pikachu was wrapped up in a big, sloppy Psyduck hug. Awww. 

Ready to go see the movie? Technically, its official title is Pokemon Detective Pikachu, and it takes place in a world where Pokemon exist with humans as 21-year-old Tim Goodman attempts to get to the bottom of where his private eye father Harry Goodman has gone missing. It's based on the Detective Pikachu game of the same name for Nintendo 3DS. Tim has no idea where to start when it comes to tracking down his dad. Luckily, he's got Detective Pikachu at his side to figure it all out. It appears this Pikachu is special, though, because he can talk. Unfortunately, Tim is the only one who can understand him.

There's a ton of Pokemon in the movie as the trailer above reveals, each rendered in a more "realistic" style. You'll see plenty of the 'mons in the new trailer, but we've also seen a whole lot in previous videos too, like Jigglypuff, Pancham, Charizard, Mewtwo, and a whole lot more. 

In case you haven't been keeping track, the movie comes out in about a week or so! Isn't that crazy? It's finally time to see if it's actually any good. In the meantime, while you're waiting for May 10 to roll around, be sure to check out our trailer breakdown
