It seems that, despite being called Detective Pikachu, the film is more than willing to share the spotlight with other Pokemon like Charizard and Jigglypuff, giving them both new character posters.
The posters in question are partly advertised as the Pokemon’s poor attempts at making snow angels. The first poster shows an outline of Pikachu in the snow as if he had recently laid down in it with his hat nearby. The second shows Jigglypuff with her iconic mic/marker in the snow nearby as well. The final image shows Charizard who had done the same but literally melted the snow beneath him, showing the ground underneath.
You can see all three posters with all their comedic effects below:
From the look of things, Pikachu is going to have a few friends in his upcoming investigation. And they all have a similar love of the snow.

New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".

Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
