Pokémon: Detective Pikachu Lickitung Bulbasaur

Alright, “lascivious” is an unfairly strong word to describe Lickitung in the new Pokémon: Detective Pikachu commercial, but the internet basically agrees that his apartment building-sized tongue is terrifying. He could eat a cat in one gulp with that thing, to say nothing of *cough* other things he could dine on. Bulbasaur, by comparison, is looking all sorts of precious. Today I learned I would be delighted to own a Bulbasaur.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu releases on May 10, which is still a ways away. But I’m very curious what kind of numbers this movie will rake in. If the movie is handled right — and frankly, it looks like it has been — it should be an avalanche of revenue for Warner Bros., Nintendo, and the Pokémon Company.

Let us know what you think of Lickitung and Bulbasaur and which one you’d rather come home to at night!
