A new Detective Pikachu trailer has emerged and though fans have definitely come around to the idea of the live-action flick doesn't mean that some of the pocket monsters don't look totally weird in their new hyper-realistic form.
With the latest trailer showing off a few more familiar faces, Pokemon fans can't stop thinking about how weird Lickitung looks.

Detective Pikachu is slated for a theater release on May 10, 2019. For more about the movie:
"The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe."
