Second ‘Detective Pikachu’ Trailer Reveals Mewtwo!

The second trailer for Detective Pikachu has dropped! As expected, Mewtwo will appear in the film. The movie will hit theaters May 10th.

Some new Pokemon seen in the trailer include Ludicolo, Growlithe, Golurk, Snorlax, Flabebe, Loudred, Gengar, Blastoise, Cubone, and a hologram of an Eevee evolving into Flareon on a desk in front of statues of Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus.

As I reported a while ago, Mew and Mewtwo were revealed to be involved with the movie’s plot when they were mentioned in the summary for a Japanese comic book adaptation of the film. Mewtwo also had a role in the Detective Pikachu video game the film is based on.

It’s likely we’ll be getting a Mewtwo-GX Case File on March 29th, as speculated a while ago. Several Detective Pikachu TCG products are set to hit store shelves over the next few months to promote the film. One of the products features a Pokemon-GX that has purposefully been hidden by TPCi, likely because they didn’t want the TCG marketing to reveal Mewtwo is in the movie.

A new poster was also revealed.

    I thought those were Moreluls given that they were glowing.

    As for the trailer, I need this movie to come out like yesterday. The Pokemon look so crisp and realistic plus Mewtwo looks as menacing as ever. Part of me hopes they got Dan Green to voice him in this movie.

    Flying above the bulbas are really Moreluls. I was saying the scenes just after. You can see the bulbas from above and two flying things going down. Those two things I was guessing that could be Confeys, but idk.

    Me: "This movie looks so awesome! It's so good it could be a hallucination."
    Detective Pikachu: "You're a hallucination."
    are those Aipoms at 1:42? Gosh they look creepier than Mr. Mime. +1:35
    I will never look at Aipom the same again.

    This just looks like goofy fun--well thought-out goofy fun--and I'm loving it! I couldn't help but laugh or at least smile throughout this trailer. I'm looking forward to seeing this!

    Also, it's not really a big deal, but I'm surprised Pikachu was allowed to say "hell." I mean, it's one of the least offensive swear words, so whatever? But I guess the point I'm trying to make is that it just adds onto this feeling that I've gotten from both trailers. It seems like TPC/Nintendo (or whoever else) allowed the writer(s)/director to just go for it and make an actual movie without being tied down too much. Based on some of the visuals and dialogue, it doesn't feel like one of those brain-dead, pandering 'kids movies' that usually plague cinemas. (With optional weird, out of place adult jokes or references in order to "entertain" parents who had to bring their child to see a horrible movie). People of all ages--and possibly not just fans of Pokemon--could enjoy this movie.

    I didn't like this trailer it revealed too much to the plot as I feel that they gave us enough pieces to say that Pikachu is his father there is so much evidence pointing towards this

    We got next to nothing on plot. Just an explanation of Pikachu and Harry's backstory. Assuming the plot is similar to the game. Thee only real hints at the actual plot are Mewtwo and that Aipom scene
