Detective Pikachu opens his casebook on Nintendo 3DS systems, and Blastoise surfs onto the battlefield in Pokkén Tournament DX on Nintendo Switch

Get ready to embark on an epic action-adventure game like no other with a very special Pikachu and his good friend Tim. Join the unlikely duo as they work to uncover the mysteries of Ryme City and find Tim’s missing father in Detective Pikachu. The game is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Detective Pikachu features:
  • The ultimate crime-busting duo – Team up with self-proclaimed great Detective Pikachu. You have never seen or heard a Pikachu like this one before.
     
  • An incredible Pokémon metropolis – Venture among the people and Pokémon that fill the streets of Ryme City as you search high and low for clues.
     
  • Opportunities to investigate Pokémon mysteries – Become the ultimate detective with Pikachu and search crime scenes, solve puzzles, talk to witnesses and find evidence to crack the case.
 
  • Get help from Pikachu with Easy mode – New to sleuthing or need help uncovering evidence? Don’t worry, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode where Pikachu will provide handy hints.

 
A special extra-large Detective Pikachu amiibo is also available now. The amiibo allows players to view all the Pika Prompts (short video clips) from chapters they have completed, including ones they missed finding earlier. These clips feature Pikachu’s quips and antics—and may even contain a hint.
 
To celebrate the launch of Detective Pikachu, a free Pikachu iMessage sticker set is available now on iOS. The sticker set includes eight stickers featuring Detective Pikachu in various poses. Fans who want to know more about the story of the game can check out the illustrated prequel story, “Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee’s Case.” Taking place before Detective Pikachu teams up with Tim, the short story sets the scene for the video game. “Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee’s Case” is available to download at no charge on Apple iBooks Store and Amazon’s Kindle Store now for a limited time.
 
Detective Pikachu is available now to purchase digitally or in-store at retail. For all information, please visit: https://detectivepikachu.pokemon.com/en-gb/

Also available today is the second wave of new content for the Pokkén Tournament DX Battle Pack DLC exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system. Prepare to wash away the competition as this wave of DLC unleashes the Water-type Battle Pokémon Blastoise, brand-new avatar items, new Trainer titles and two new Support Pokémon—the Mythical Pokémon Mew and Celebi. The Pokkén Tournament DX Battle Pack DLC is available now for £13.49.

Pokémon GO updated to version 0.95.3 for Android and 1.65.3 for iOS / Facebook Logins

Niantic have announced the details for the 3rd Pokémon GO Community Day which takes place on March 25th, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM Haiti Daylight Time. The featured Pokémon for this day is Bulbasaur and as a result all Venusaur that have evolved from Ivysaur during the duration of the Community Day will have the move Frenzy Plant, a move that no other Pokémon currently has in the game. The bonus 3× Catch XP and 3-Hour Lures will also be available that day.

Pokémon GO updated to version 0.95.3 for Android and 1.65.3 for iOS

Trainers, Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.95.3 for Android and 1.65.3 for iOS devices. Details from our development team:

  • Facebook credentials can now be used to log into the app via the ‘Account’ section in Settings.
  • Various bug fixes and performance updates.

Facebook Account Linking and Login Updates Coming to Pokémon GO!

Good news, Trainers! We’ll soon begin rolling out support for account linking with Facebook. Along with a simpler sign-in process, linking Pokémon GO to your Facebook account gives you more options to log in and helps preserve your progress across devices.

With this change, you will also be able to link your Trainer profile to your Facebook and Google accounts, and use any of those credentials to access Pokémon GO. For example, someone who currently logs in with Pokémon Trainer Club could link their Trainer profile to both their Google and Facebook accounts, and then they can use whichever account they prefer going forward. To link your Trainer profile to a Google or Facebook account, access the Settings menu and then select the platform you’d like to link.

Account linking is especially useful for someone who has registered for Pokémon GO using a Google Account that they may not be able to access in the future, such as one associated with a work or university email address. By linking their Facebook account, they can continue to make progress on their Pokédex, and even link a new Google account to their Trainer profile.

Please note: this feature will only be available to Trainers aged 13 and over.
