Get a Closer Look at Detective Pikachu's Pokémon Cast

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The Detective Pikachu film will capture audiences and Pokémon alike on May 10. Fans have kept their eyes peeled to see which of their favorite monsters will show up Rob Letterman's live-action film adaptation. The latest trailer offers a closer look at the Pokémon designs as part of a "casting reel." Charizard, Aipom, Eevee, and more appear on the "set" in front of white screen like real cast members might do for make-up and costume testing prior to filming.

If you look closely, it appears someone gave their Eevee a flat-top haircut for its audition. Meanwhile, Squirtle is definitely giving some circa-1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles vibes.

The end of the video also announces that theater tickets for the film during opening weekend will bundle two Pokémon Trading Card Game booster packs with one photo-realistic trading card in each pack while supplies last. One of the packs is guaranteed to hold a Detective Pikachu version of the electric mouse Pokémon.

The movie version booster packs are also for sale on Amazon.
