Arcanine was originally going to be a much bigger part of Detective Pikachu. So this stuff is from very early on my work for the film. It was going to be Tim's Pokemon so I gave it the tongue sticky out thing my doofus cat does. What's not to love, its a horse sized liger-dog. pic.twitter.com/KlipIyr8sF— RJ Palmer 🔜 Anime Expo H3 (@arvalis) June 18, 2019
Detective Pikachu artist RJ Palmer has once again revealed some new details for Detective Pikachu. In recent weeks, we've learned about all sorts of content that didn't make the final cut. Turns out Arcanine actually had a bigger role in the film than what we see in the final version. Arcanine was going to be Tim's Pokemon at one point in development!
