“Pokémon Detective Pikachu” will bring dozens of iconic Pokémon to the big screen this week, rendering them in live action for the very first time.

In both “Detective Pikachu” and the Pokémon games, Pokémon live alongside humans in place of animals, making them a common sight on city streets and in nature. The trailers for “Detective Pikachu” are chock full of hidden Pokémon and fun nods to the games that inspired the film.

The film will star Ryan Reynolds as the voice of the titular character, with Justice Smith as his human partner. It’s slated to drop on May 10.

But with more than 800 Pokémon to keep track of, recognizing all of them can be a chore. Luckily, we’ve done the extra work to slow the trailers down and see just how many were brought to life in the previewers. Through about half a dozen trailers, teasers, and TV commercials so far, I’ve counted no fewer than 30 Pokémon. Even more can be seen on ads and billboards in the film’s backgrounds.

Here are the Pokémon I spotted in both trailers, in the order they appear. 

These creatures crawling on the power lines at the start of the new trailer are actually a bug-type Pokémon called Joltik.

While Joltik is certainly big for a regular bug, it’s actually one of the smallest Pokémon.

Ludicolo is a hilarious Pokémon that grows stronger when it hears happy music.
