The official Detective Pikachu website has launched and has posted story information, biographies of the characters as well as screenshots from the game.

A New Side of Pikachu

You’ve never seen a Pikachu like this one before. Fancying himself a real detective, this Pikachu is gruff and never far from a hot cup of coffee. He’s also a big talker who considers himself to be among the best of the best!

This bossy Pikachu has the attitude of a stern, middle-aged man, which he’ll make abundantly clear to you throughout the game. Look forward to hearing his catchphrase “A bolt of brilliance!” as often as possible.

It’s not just his ability to speak or his attitude that sets this Pikachu apart from other Pikachu you’ve seen. He loves to laugh and to solve mysteries, and he’ll show you just how exasperated he can get if you blunder through your next case.

Not to mention that detective hat—a bit of a giveaway that he’s eager to look the part, too!

Story/Information:

Crack the case in this new detective adventure game by interacting with a unique, fully-voiced Pikachu!

As Tim Goodman, you'll partner with a self-proclaimed "great detective" Pikachu to solve strange occurrences all over Ryme City. Together you must investigate, take notes, and meet up with other Pokémon to unravel the city's greatest mysteries!

Tim is searching for his missing father in Ryme City, but instead encounters a witty, tough-talking Pikachu! Along the way, experience over 150 fun-filled animated cutscenes starring this unique Pikachu, providing helpful hints or talking up a storm. You can also tap the extra-large Detective Pikachu amiibo™ figure to access all cutscenes up until the current chapter played. As you investigate crime scenes, gather testimonies, uncover information, and interact with Pokémon to solve cases. You’ll have to put your detective skills to the test to foil the mastermind behind the disturbances in Ryme City. All in a day's work for detective Pikachu!

Features:

  • Team up with self the pro-claimed "great detective" Pikachu!
  • Experience over 150 animated cutscenes of a fun, and witty talking Pikachu
  • Investigate the scene, take notes and crack the case!
  • Interact with various Pokémon throughout Ryme City

Demo Announced for Japan:

A demo version of Detective Pikachu will be available as a free download on the Japanese Nintendo e-shop starting in early March 2018. In the special demo version, the beginning of the game can be played! In addition, the saved data from the special demo version can be transferred over to the full retail version, if you buy the game after the release date, so players can continue on from the end point of the demo version.

As part of the Rainbow Rocket Gang - Pokémon Center Campaign, players of Pokémon GO in Japan from February 26th, 2018 until March 11th, 2018 will have the chance to battle Sakaki's Nidoking in a Raid Battle at the Pokémon Center locations.

Sakaki's Nidoking is very powerful unlike ordinary Nidoking. Players will all need to team up together to defeat Sakaki's Nidoking. For those that do defeat it, a Nidoking sticker will be given out. To participate in a raid battle, players need to be level 5 or more and every time a player participates in a raid battle, one "Raid Pass" or "Premium Raid Pass" is required. A Premium Raid Pass can be obtained by using PokéCoins at the shop in-game.

Raid Battle Times:

Monday - Friday (except holidays): (1) 16:00 (2) 17:30 (3) 19:00
Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays: (1) 11:00 (2) 12:30 (3) 14:00 (4) 15:30 (5) 17:00

Niantic has announced that from February 23rd, 2018 until March 5th, 2018, players of Pokémon GO will have the chance to catch the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza in Raid Battles.

Kyogre and Groudon Join Rayquaza for a Legendary Week of Raid Battles!

Trainers, Now is the time to test your strength! Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon return to Raid Battles alongside Rayquaza for a limited time. Now is an excellent chance to finally catch all three ancient Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region!

Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza each have their own strengths and weaknesses, so challenging all three will take skill! Power up your strongest Pokémon, grab your friends, and head to nearby Gyms for a chance to battle and catch them from February 23 until March 5.

We’re in for some legendary battles, and the overall result will be exciting! If Rayquaza is defeated more than Kyogre and Groudon combined, Pokémon that typically prefer windy weather (for example, Bagon) are more likely to hatch from Eggs from March 5 to March 16. If not, Pokémon that prefer sunny or rainy weather (like Trapinch or Lotad) are more likely to hatch.

These battles will be tough, so we have new special boxes debuting on February 24, containing Raid Passes to help you prepare. Visit the in-game store to find out more.

Did you know Pokémon is celebrating a ‘legendary’ year in 2018? You can learn about more about these and other Legendary Pokémon at Pokemon.com/Legendary.

Don’t miss this opportunity to add these Legendary Pokémon to your team. Stay safe, and happy exploring!
