The latest Detective Pikachu trailer shows a rather down-in-the-dumps electric rodent sleuth. Online in Japan, people have fallen in love with this shiwa-shiwa (しわしわ or wrinkly) Pikachu, calling the character cute and creating fan art.
Here are some images of the wrinkly Pikachu.
One Twitter user called the movie’s version “Shiwachu” (Wrinkle-chu). Everyone seems to agree that Detective Pikachu is very cute.
