When it was decided the Detective Pikachu movie would fill the real world with Pokémon, RJ Palmer was hired on as a key artist for the project. For years before he had designed realistic versions of the critters, albeit ones that were a lot more visceral than the ones we saw in the movie. Now the project has wrapped up, he’s back to doing that fan art, starting with Sword & Shield’s Impidimp, Morgrem, and Grimmsnarl, plus a few other Glimwood Tangle Pokémon on the sidelines (including a mortified Sinistea!)
 


 
A video has also been uploaded showing the process of drawing the creepy beastie.
 

 
We’ll just have to wait and see if it creeps into any potential Detective Pikachu cinematic sequels…

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
