Pokemon: Detective Pikachu features some of our favorite Pokemon, some of which are the most adorable versions of themselves you will ever see. Even if you aren’t a fan of Pokemon, you will still love how cute the little pocket monsters are in this movie. However, some of the Pokemon are not as cute as their pre-evolution Pokemon. Here’s a list of the top 5 cutest Pokemon in Pokemon: Detective Pikachu that will make you want to see the movie.
Cubone may look scary, but there is still a very cute side to him. Even though Cubone wears the skulls of his dead relatives, he does a great job showing off his weird fashion choices. Cubone is shown in one of the first scenes of the movie looking feisty while also looking adorable.
Even though Charmander is only shown a few times on-screen, he was still one of the cutest live-action adaptations of this already adorable Pokemon! Charmander is shown walking the streets of Ryme City and enjoying a run through the forest with his buddies. If you liked catching Charmander in Pokemon GO, or any other Pokemon game, you will definitely enjoy watching him in Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. Charmander’s evolved form, Charizard, on the other hand? Definitely not cute.
Bulbasaur is known for the large plant bulb on his back. If you’ve ever thought of Bulbasaur as just a starter Pokemon, this movie will shine a new light on your perspective of him. He may seem a little shy in the trailer, but he is definitely a good helper.
Jigglypuff has always been one of the cutest Pokemon in all of the games, but she is extremely cute in the movie. Don’t let Jigglypuff’s cute demeanor trick you though, she also has a ferocious side. She is seen most singing in the coffee lounge with people falling asleep near her because of her lovely voice.
Honorable Mentions: Squirtle, Baby Pancham, Snorlax, Aipom, and Emolga
Unfortunately, these five Pokemon were in the movie for a too brief amount of time (some of them I didn’t even notice were in it the first time I saw the movie), especially the cute side of Aipom, that they didn’t make it onto the list. However, I thought that they were so cute that they deserved to at least be included as honorable mentions.
1. Detective Pikachu
Finally, Detective Pikachu. The minute I saw his adorably soft face, I knew that he was the cutest Pokemon in the entire world of Pokemon. He was the best version of Pikachu I had ever seen – I mean just look at these huge eyes! Pikachu has an adorable personality, look, and quite frankly, an adorable sense of humor. And no, I did not choose him because he is the main character, I chose him because he is genuinely the most adorable Pokemon!
