Charizard was the very first thing I worked on and also one of the last. Charizard has always been one of my favorite designs. It was super cool to see what the finished effects for Charizard looked like. His animations were so good!— RJ Palmer 🔜 Anime Expo H3 (@arvalis) May 24, 2019

RJ Palmer continues to share Detective Pikachu concept art from early in the film's creation. Today we get a look at both Charizard and Bulbasaur, which both went through some serious revisions before they hit the big screen. It's clear that everyone involved thought a more friendly approach was the way to go.
This was my design for Venusaur on Detective Pikachu. This was during a period where I was free to explore a more naturalistic approach. Looking back though its super clear that this would be too scary for the tone of the movie. I think the design they ended up with is fabulous! pic.twitter.com/SSekVKI47D— RJ Palmer 🔜 Anime Expo H3 (@arvalis) May 28, 2019
