Here’s Every Pokémon Who Appeared In The New Detective Pikachu Trailer


Detective Pikachu is slowly building up an enormous amount of hype as its release quickly approaches. Though it was a bit of an eyebrow-raiser at first due to casting Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu and having a pretty surreal sounding plot, the movie’s been going down so well with fans that Legendary’s already developing spinoffs for their new cinematic universe. Folks have also been kept happy thanks to a well thought out marketing campaign that’s gradually revealed the film’s takes on their favorite Pokémon.

Speaking of which, a brand new trailer dropped online earlier today and it featured a ton of the aforementioned creatures, some of which were on display for the first time while others we’d already seen in previous footage. But with so much going on in the preview, you wouldn’t be blamed for not catching all of them and thanks to the folks at ScreenRant, we now have a complete rundown of which Pokémon featured.

Here’s the full list:

  • Pikachu
  • Ludicolo
  • Charizard
  • Charmander
  • Growlithe
  • Golurk
  • Machamp
  • Snorlax
  • Snubbull
  • Bulbasaur
  • Lickitung
  • Squirtle
  • Pancham
  • Illumise
  • Psyduck
  • Jigglypuff
  • Loudred
  • Blastoise
  • Gengar
  • Cubone
  • Eevee/Flareon
  • Greninja
  • Aipom
  • Mewtwo
  • Mr. Mime

It’s an exhaustive group of Pokémon, but rest assured, all those characters appeared and if you head on over to Screen Rant via the link below, you’ll find a detailed breakdown of where each of them showed up. Or, you can just watch the trailer above and keep your eyes peeled. Your choice.

Anyways, things are certainly looking good for Detective Pikachu right about now, as it’s been testing off the charts, while the general consensus appears to be that this love letter to all things Pokémon will be a global hit at the box office. After all, Nintendo’s powerhouse franchise has been a worldwide sensation for more than 20 years now, and no one can deny that Pokémon continues to evade the common pitfalls often associated with franchise fatigue. Let’s just hope Detective Pikachu honors that trend.
