I saw that Serebii has itself a "cinematic PokéDex" (with a terrible layout, of course, don't know if Bulbapedia is more convenient about it) where someone autistically went through all the current trailer footage, every single frame and every single pixel, and found all the known Pokémon. Thus far, only 47 out of 60+ have been seen. (Card art leaks, and signs, statues and posters didn't count here.)

Here you go. Neither one lists Chimecho though, which is visible in the aerial shot of the Bulbasaur group.
Is Chimecho there? There's a Pokémon flying that at a glance looks like a bug, but apparently it's just another Comfey. I'll check it out again.

EDIT: It could be a couple of Chimecho, but it's hard to tell with them being out of focus.

Also I've meant to share this comment for a while just for the hell of it:

I didn't consider the possibility of them being Comfey since in the game they only let go of their tails when they faint. So they're probably not Chimecho then.

Ryan Reynolds YouTube channel just posted this video, which has a showcase of a bunch of the Pokémon appearing in the movie, some that haven’t been seen yet.
Jigglypuff blowing her curl out of her eyes is the best thing I have ever seen in my life. Everything's perfect.

By the way, ticket preorders are available. Preordered seats today.

I want the special needs Mewtwo plushie tho.
I don't see anything wrong with the Mr. Mime plushie.

Also, I hope my favorite Gen 1 Pokemon (Oddish) or my favorite Gen 2 Pokemon (Hoppip) makes an appearance.

It never really occurred to me that starter Pokémon are basically babies/toddlers until I saw the Charmander and Squirtle in the new trailer. Specifically Squirtle with the bubble.

I don't either, but a lot of people are weirded out by it since it's a posable doll. There's been a couple of pictures on Tumblr showcasing it.

Same here; the Jumpluff line sounds quite likely what with all the Pokémon flying in the air.

I keep forgetting that, too, even though we've seen cases of it in the anime before like with Torchic and Piplup. But I think it's easy to forget simply because when Ash got the three starters originally, they were either wild or abandoned Pokémon that had at least some experience and had developed their own personalities.

Actually, now I remember that one art that was made regarding the Japanese monorail or something with someone holding their Squirtle as it plays on their smartphone.
