Ryan Reynolds isn’t the only one getting excited for the Detective Pikachu cinematic release.

In celebration of the upcoming movie, Warner Bros. France has launched a web extension that’ll transform everything you look at online into Pikachu’s own Pika-Pi language.

The web extension is available for both Firefox and Chrome, and it’s as pointless as it is fantastic [via TheGamer].

Finally, your childhood dreams of Pika-pi-ing your way through life can now be a reality, and it’s just getting us more and more hyped for the release of the upcoming movie.

The movie is the first live-action Pokemon adventure, and its official description reads: “The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself.

“Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.”
