Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie filmed in Highlands

Scenes for the upcoming Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie were filmed in the Scottish Highlands, it has emerged.

Parts of Glen Nevis and the surrounding area were temporarily closed to the public in March this year for an unnamed film production. A trailer released this week for the Pokemon movie includes scenes shot in Glen Affric. Local Highland councilor Margaret Davidson said the crew was “good neighbors” during the filming.

The production involved temporarily closing off areas popular with walkers, and also filming on the C1162 Glen Nevis Road using a helicopter, a vehicle fitted with a camera and also a drone. Mountaineering Scotland issued advice at the time to hillwalkers about the provision of a minibus service to shuttle walkers and cyclists between road closure points. Walkers were also warned to expect access to Devil’s Pulpit in Finnish Glen and the River Affric at Cannich to be restricted. read more posts… News Credit: BBC
