All 13 New Pokemon Revealed In Detective Pikachu Trailer 2
By Phil Hornshaw | @philhornshaw on
A new trailer for Detective Pikachu recently hit the internet, and like previous footage of the movie before it, it was full of Pokemon rendered in extremely realistic detail. As one might expect, the Pokemon are all incredibly strange, as well as vaguely terrifying. Pikachu might be cute and fuzzy, but there are plenty of other creatures in Ryme City who are not so endearing--like the exceptionally wet and slimy Lickitung. The highlight this time around was likely Ludicolo (a combo pineapple and duck), who looks downright wild.
We've dug through this latest trailer to pick out all the new Pokemon hidden in Ryme City, and there are quite a few. Some are cute, some are weird, and some definitely seem like they'd be too dangerous to just let walk around your town. Check them out below, and let us know in the comments if you've spotted any we missed. Many are shown very briefly, and the movie looks like it'll be sure to have tons of Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans. You should also check out our rundown of all the Pokemon hidden in the first Detective Pikachu trailer, because there are a lot of them.
The new Detective Pikachu trailer dropped just prior to numerous other Pokemon-related happenings to celebrate Pokemon's 23rd anniversary. A special Nintendo Direct focused on Pokemon revealed the new Gen 8 games for Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Sword and Shield. So far, we've only been introduced to the three new starter Pokemon, but there are sure to be plenty of other new creatures on the way.
When not fighting people with his four Goro arms, Machamp's many limbs help make it a good crossing guard.
Ludicolo is a duck combined with a pineapple, and this one serves coffee, and should be the star of its own movie.
Blocking roads as usual. Also check out the distant but still cute Pancham hiding in the background.
The fluffy pink dog-like Pokemon Snubbull looks like a giant, potentially lethal plush toy.
Somebody summons Cubone from a Pokeball in this shot. Hopefully that means Pikachu will have to battle Cubone at some point--if not with his powers, at least with hilarious quips.
It looks like we'll even be seeing some Pokemon evolutions in Detective Pikachu. This shot appears to show an Eevee turning into a Flareon. There also are a few statues of Legendary Pokemon hiding in the background.
It's tough to tell because of the focus, but we're reasonably certain those guys in the foreground here are Chimechos.
Between this shot and a later one of Aipoms escaping, these little monkey Pokemon seem to be absolutely terrifying--like Gremlins, or Critters.
Golurk, Growlithe, And Arcanine
A bunch of Pokemon work with the cops, it seems. Big giant Golurks appear to be on door duty and some officers seem to have Growlithes in tow (as well as a Charmander). There's also an evolved version of Growlithe, Arcanine, in the corner near the RCPD building.
A ton of Pokemon show up in the fighting pit scene--so many that we're probably missing a few between this gallery and the last Pokemon-filled trailer breakdown we did. This time we spotted a Rattata in the bottom-left corner. There's also another Pancham hanging around being cute on the right, and a Charmander and a Squirtle back there somewhere, too.
Gengar And Blastoise
It's a bit tough to make out in this trailer, but in the Pokemon fighting pit scene we've seen a couple times now, we'll see Pikachu fight a Charizard, as well as this Blastoise taking on several Gengars.
Loudred's speakers make it a pretty good Pokemon companion for DJs, and it seems they'll help call the matches at the Pokemon fight we've seen in several trailers. They may also become participants, if later shots are any indication.
It wouldn't be a Pokemon movie without a scary villainous Mewtwo blowing stuff up. Hopefully he has long monologues about being mistreated by society and wanting to do murders.
