Tickets for the movie officially went on sale today, and Reynolds announced this with a new video called “Casting Detective Pikachu.” The video, available to watch on his Twitter and YouTube channel, shows the “screen tests” for various Pokémon who appear in the movie.

Alongside most of the Pokémon introduced in the video, there is an alternate name that describes what that Pokémon does or looks like. For example, Aipon is the “Long Tail Pokémon” and Pikachu is “Mouse Pokémon.” The whole thing is set to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.”
Other highlights from the video include our first real look at Squirtle and a brief scene that seems to show Pikachu strapped into a car seat, which Twitter is loving.
The video also announces that an exclusive Detective Pikachu Pokémon Trading Card will be available only in theaters with the purchase of a ticket to see the movie.
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu arrives in theaters on May 10.
