Pikachu, Charizard, Psyduck, And More Brought To Life Via DETECTIVE PIKACHU Models

Detective Pikachu is the first live-action Pokemon movie and now some models used during production have been released which offer a closer look at the likes of Snubbull and Greninja. Check them out...

Like most video game movies, no one was really expecting much from Detective Pikachu and most fans of the franchise struggled to get their heads around the fact that Legendary Pictures had chosen that as the first live-action Pokemon movie. 

While a trailer obviously doesn't tell the full story (remember how good Warcraft looked?), the signs do appear to be pointing to this being something special and a movie which actually does these iconic creatures justice as they finally make their live-action debut. While the teaser included plenty of Pokemon cameos, we now have a closer look at those and more! 



Thanks to IGN, we have models - presumably used for VFX reference on set and to give the actors something to react to - of Pikachu, Psyduck, Charizard, Snubbull, Greninja, and more. 

So, to take a look at these models, all you guys have to do is click on the "View List" button below.


Pikachu



Pikachu has been brought to life in a really effective way and while Ryan Reynolds voicing the "detective" is an unexpected decision, it's great to know that we're going to hear "Pika! Pika!" too.
 

Psyduck



Lucy's sidekick in the movie, Psyduck has often been used as a punchline but he's an incredibly powerful Pokemon and the trailer pointed to us seeing at least some point in Detective Pikachu
 

Charizard



Charizard was one of the most highly sought after Pokemon cards when I was a kid so it's a real treat seeing him brought to life on the big screen in what looks like it will be a standout sequence. 
 

Snubbull



How cute is this? While Pokemon GO obviously increased interest in the franchise again, The Pokemon Company must be well aware that they're going to sell a lot of merchandise next year. 
 

Greninja



I'm not overly familiar with this newer Pokemon but Greninja is reportedly extremely popular due to his ninja abilities (the clue is in the name, I guess). Yes, that is his tongue he's using as a scarf.


 


Creepy or cute? As always, be sure to let us know your thoughts on these live-action Pokemon in the comments section below and be sure to stay tuned for more from Detective Pikachu.
