For a long time, many Pokemon series fans were wondering what the age rating of Detective Pikachu would be with the main character (Pikachu) being voiced by actor Ryan Reynolds who is known for his R rated Deadpool movies!
Well now it seems that this film has been rated as suitable for nearly all ages with it being given a PG rating by the MPAA!
Check out the confirmation below:
POKEMON: DETECTIVE PIKACHU: Rated PG for action/peril,
some rude and suggestive humor, and thematic elements…and that folks is a goddamn miracle with Ryan Reynolds as the voice of Pikachu. The R-rated outtakes cut will be worth the wait.

The PG rating is likely due to there being many action scenes with Pokemon in the film and some minor instances of Pikachu in a way cursing as we saw in the latest trailer!
