'Detective Pikachu' Shares First Look At Snubbull

Pokemon is living large these days, and its live-action plans have plenty to do with its rise. Earlier this week, the first trailer for Detective Pikachu went live, and it was there fans met dozens of real-world Pokemon.

However, there was one cutie missing from the reel, but that has since been fixed. Snubbull’s live-action look has gone public, and fans think the creature might be the film’s best yet.

Over on Twitter, close-up images of Snubbull went live when reporters posted photos taken at a recent Pokemon press event. Detective Pikachu shared its first trailer with media ahead of time, and it was there several Pokemon models were shown. Snubbull was one such doll, and you can check out the Fairy-type below.

As you can see, Snubbull is plenty fluffy and could almost resemble a piece of cotton candy. The model sees Snubbull sitting down with its large feet splayed, and the Pokemon has its droopy ears down. Fans are also given a good look at Snubbull’s pointed teeth, and its narrowed eyes make the adorable Pokemon look ready to quick attack someone.

So far, fans have no idea how Snubbull will factor into Detective Pikachu. The trailer didn’t spotlight the Pokemon but instead focused on leads like Mr. Mime and Psyduck. Still, Snubbull’s adorable aesthetic has fans buzzing, so netizens are hoping the live-action venture gives the cutie some dedicate screen time.

So, what do you make of this design? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
