The franchise will soon have [[Film/PokemonDetectivePikachu a live action movie]] on the way from Creator/LegendaryPictures and Creator/WarnerBros, based off the ''VideoGame/DetectivePikachu'' spin-off game. It will be the first live-action entry of the franchise to be officially licensed, and the first live-action media related to ''Pokémon'' since the short-lived ''Pokémon Live!'' concert tour in the United States (besides the 20th anniversary Pokémon commercial shown during Super Bowl 50). Although it is expected not to be based off any of the main ''Pokémon'' entries, such films could also be in the pipeline should the ''Detective Pikachu'' movie do well.

''Pokémon'' is a [[LongRunner long-running series ]] of [[EasternRPG Japanese]] {{Role Playing Game}}s, developed by Creator/GameFreak and published by {{video game}} giant Creator/{{Nintendo}}, which spawned a [[CashCowFranchise multi-billion dollar franchise]], and indirectly caused the proliferation of Western broadcasts of {{anime}} in the mid-to-late 1990s, along with ''Franchise/DragonBall'' and ''Franchise/SailorMoon''. ''Pokémon'' went on to gross an estimated $90 billion worldwide, becoming the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_highest-grossing_media_franchises highest-grossing]] entertainment media franchise of all time, surpassing not only Nintendo's ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]]'' and ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', but even Creator/{{Disney}} properties such as the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, ''WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts & Friends]]'', ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh Winnie the Pooh]]'', and ''Franchise/StarWars''. Only Creator/{{Sanrio}}'s ''Franchise/HelloKitty'' comes close to ''Pokémon''[='=]s revenue, but it's still estimated to be $5 billion dollars short of the top spot.
