We may have finally uncovered the identity of the big baddie in the upcoming Pokémon film Detective Pikachu.
According to WeGotThisCovered, the foe for Pikachu and his friends is none other than the superpowered creature Mewtwo. The most powerful psychic Pokémon in the video game series seems to be revealed as the antagonist behind the mystery Ryan Reynolds’ Detective Pikachu will be solving. Nonetheless, we still don’t know if Mewtwo is being handled by some shady organization or if he’s acting on his own.
For those who don’t know, Mewtwo was a product of an experiment conducted by the villainous Team Rocket to re-create the first known legendary Pokémon, Mew. Mewtwo became brutal in nature after finding out that he was a failed attempt at replacing Mew, Mewtwo was the first Pokémon to be considered evil. Which is a lot different from Mew who’s also very powerful but sweet in nature. Needless to say, Mewtwo is one of the strongest Pokémon ever.
Mewtwo was the villain in Pokémon’s first animated cinematic outing, Pokémon The First Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back. In the film, the TV series hero Ash Ketchum and his friends are engaged by Mewtwo because he believes that humans only use Pokémon to battle each other with no regards of their feelings. If you were a Pokémon fan as a child, you may know that Ash proves him wrong in a highly sentimental climax that made us all shed a tear or two.

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.
