Here Are All the Pokemon Appearing in 'Detective Pikachu'

By

Updated

For the first time ever, there’s a live-action Pokémon movie in theaters featuring a few of our favorite pocket monsters from all generations of Pokémon. 

Just from the opening scene of the Detective Pikachu trailer, you can already spot a handful of Pokémon in the air and on the ground. 

Spotting them is just half the fun of this feature-length film but in case you get overwhelmed, we’ll give you the run-down of Pokémon... gotta catch em’ all!

1. The latest trailer is teeming with different Pokemon

How many did you catch on your first or second viewing? Since there are so many, there's a good chance you probably missed out on a lot of them, especially with the other teaser trailers and ad spots on the internet. But don't worry, we've got you covered in case you missed a few.

(Note: some have multiple appearances across all trailers; we did our best to capture them all.)

2. Pikachu (duh)

He’s yellow and he’s cute, but don’t be fooled by this movie’s hero because although he’s not into fighting, he’s a crime-solving badass that won’t stop until he gets to the bottom of his case. The witty, fuzzy creature is voiced by Ryan Reynolds, making him really stand out as the ever-loved main character.

3. Psyduck, along with Jigglypuff and Gengar (as floaties)

Here, we see the female lead Lucy (Kathryn Newton) standing next to a Psyduck, out on a reporting mission following a major story. Behind them float two balloons as if in a parade: one shaped like a Gengar and one like a Jigglypuff.

It was a very quick glance at the scaly, fire-breathing Charizard, but we can see that it’s fighting someone or something in a battle arena.

10. Greninja

A pack of Greninja slash the screen with their long slimy fingers as their long tongues wrap around their necks.. Not my idea of a cozy scarf but still totally awesome and scary.

11. Mewtwo

Looking more human-like than he has in other games, this genetically-created psychic Pokmon looks all sorts of intimidating in the trailer.

The already strange-looking Pokémon, Mr.Mime looks even more bizarre in live-action. Lots of details on this one: the wrinkles around the eyes and textured shoulder balls. What a magnificent work of animated art.

21. Loudred

It makes total sense that Loudred is hanging with the DJ crew at what seems to be an event of some sort. I'm guessing they're DJing an arena battle, as per the "Critical Hit!" message in the background.

22. Bouffalant

In the trailer, the Bouffalant runs amok in an office. Maybe it's a disgruntled ex employee looking for revenge?

If you’re quick with your eyes, the trailer begins with Flabébé floating about with a Comfey and even a Fearow in the air. Look back down and you’ll see a Braviary and a Dodrio walking and a tiny Charmander in the left corner. Keep staring through the crowd and you’ll discover a Bouffalant out and about.

This furry ice-type Pokemon appeared in the teaser trailer and it looks like the designers did a good job of porting them to the silver screen.
