The characters of Pokémon Sword and Shield may well have arrived a little too late to be included in the Detective Pikachu movie, but that doesn't mean that we can't see how they might have looked.

RJ Palmer, a Ubisoft artist who was discovered online and asked to work on the Detective Pikachu movie, has now created realistic drawings of both Grookey and Scorbunny. These pieces follow his previous mock-up of the water-type Sobble which we featured on the site just a couple of months ago.

Naturally, we'd urge you to check out Palmer's DeviantArt page which features plenty more great Pokémon designs, too. Before you go, though, you can see how the Grookey piece was formed in this time-lapse video below.

Truly amazing stuff, we're sure you'll agree. Perhaps these could appear in a potential Detective Pikachu 2?
