There's a ditto that transforms into two different people but with small beady eyes. That could be considered body horror?

Not abused, but a character feels that he was emotionally neglected as a child, and it still pains him.

[SPOILERS] A big part of the conflict centers around a drug for Pokemon called "R" that makes them confused and violent. It does not affect humans, but could be upsetting nonetheless.

Pokemon are drugged with a mysterious chemical called "R." It makes them act violent and aggressive. Several Aipom exposed to it by accident attack the main character and Pikachu.

In an interrogation scene, protagonists mime pouring gasoline over a pokemon to encourage information out of him. They accidentally mime setting him on fire. Scene cuts away before we can see the effects. Quite shocking, pokemon looks very panicked but played for laughs.

The inciting action of the film is the death of the main character Tim’s father.

[SPOILERS] It is revealed about midway through the film that his father did not actually die.

In addition, it is also revealed through flashbacks that his mother passed away when Tim was 11. You briefly see his grandmother and father crying and there was mention that his mother was very sick suddenly and had to be taken to the hospital.

Ghost-type Pokémon are shown in the film, but the city is full of Pokémon and they are not portrayed as frightening or scary. There is a very brief scene where a Gengar, a ghost type, fights another Pokémon but otherwise they are not often focused on in the film and are only seen in passing.

Main character sprays spit past the camera when yelling at the antagonist. Main character's face is slowly licked by a Lickitung with a gratuitous amount if saliva. The Lickitung's saliva gets in his mouth and he spits it out. Pikachu makes a fart joke.

A psyduck (psychic Pokémon) creates a sonic boom when it has an anxiety attack, so everyone tries to keep it calm. This is mostly played for humor

the movie's villain is in a wheelchair from an undisclosed illness, and his entire plot is trying to find a cure, and then going through extreme, murderous and terrorist lengths to acquire an able-bodied body for himself... it's pretty triggering to watch as a wheelchair person.

In the opening scene of the film, you see a car driving away and being hit by something which throws it off the side of a bridge. The car crash is very important to the plot and is repeatedly shown in flashbacks and holograms throughout the film.

At one point, a character brandishes a stapler pretending it's a gun. It's in a dark room, and you might briefly think it's really a gun.
