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!

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced Detective Pikachu, a new video game scheduled to release exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems both digitally and at retail on March 23rd, 2018. It was originally released in Japan on February 3rd, 2016, which will be over two years later when it is released worldwide. High resolution images and screenshots from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

DETECTIVE PIKACHU COMING SOON TO NINTENDO 3DS

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced Detective Pikachu, a new video game scheduled to release exclusively on the Nintendo 3DSTM family of systems both digitally and at retail on 23 March 2018. An action-adventure title, Detective Pikachu finds the hero of the title – a unique Pikachu in the Pokémon world – partnering with Tim Goodman and searching for evidence and clues to solve a series of cases, whilst also investigating the disappearance of Tim’s father, Harry Goodman.

Detective Pikachu Detective Pikachu

When he arrives in Ryme City looking for his missing father, little does Tim know he would meet a Pikachu, but more amazingly a Pikachu who he could communicate with. There’s more to this Pikachu than a detective hat – he’s one lovably gruff, tough-talking sleuth, with a taste for good coffee.

Detective Pikachu

This Pikachu claims that he worked with Tim’s father, and the two pair up to discover his whereabouts. Together, Tim and Detective Pikachu will encounter a number of mysteries in Ryme City and will need to talk to witnesses and gather their testimony in order to discover the truth. Cases that would be impossible for Tim to solve alone can be cracked with the help of this Pikachu, because he is able to obtain vital clues and information from other Pokémon.

Detective Pikachu includes all the chapters of the 2016 Japan-exclusive Nintendo eShop release, Detective Pikachu – Birth of a New Duo, but adds further content that completes the story. The game features new locations to explore, as well as a colourful cast of both Pokémon and human characters.

For those players who are new to sleuthing and may need some help in uncovering the evidence, Detective Pikachu features an Easy Mode, where the title character will provide handy hints on what to do or where to go next.

A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is also planned for when the game launches. It’s larger than a regular amiibo, and it 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.

More than 400 Pokémon will be discoverable in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, many of which were not available in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Some of these Pokémon will only appear depending on which version of the game is played. For example, in the same patch of tall grass where Houndoom will appear in Pokémon Ultra Sun, Manectric will appear in Pokémon Ultra Moon.

In the Alola region you can ride Pokémon in many areas and have them help you out on your journey. Now, in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon you can ride the waves on the vast ocean with Mantine, thanks to the brand-new Mantine Surf. Mantine Surf isn’t just a way to get between the islands of Alola, but it is also a sport in its own right, with Trainers competing for the highest score by pulling off a variety of radical moves. Become a pro and pull off some super cool tricks across Alola’s sea with Mantine Surf!

Another new feature making its way to Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon is the Alola Photo Club. Trainers can now take photos together with their Pokémon and choose backgrounds, camera angles, Trainer outfits, poses and more to capture amazing images. After the shoot, players can decorate the photos with cool frames and over 100 different stickers to create the perfect photo. These photos can then be shared with other players through communication features on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. When players take photos with their Pokémon, their Pokémon will become more affectionate towards them.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are also scheduled to be compatible with the Pokémon Global Link, a linked website that allows users to connect with other players all over the worlds using saved and gameplay data from their Pokémon series games, when they launch globally on 17 November 2017.

Today also sees the launch of three Pokémon video games.

Pokkén Tournament DX introduces an array of exciting new features to create the ultimate Pokkén experience. Features include the brand new fighter Decidueye, new support Pokémon Litten and Popplio, new battle modes, daily challenges and more. Thanks to the Nintendo Switch, you can now play Pokkén anytime and anywhere. Play Pokkén Tournament DX in TV mode, handheld mode, or share a Joy-Con controller with another Trainer to battle one-on-one in tabletop mode anywhere. Pokkén Tournament DX is available to purchase at retail and in Nintendo eShop.

The second titles in the Pokémon Series, Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version, are also launching today on Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Fan favourite titles, and originally among the first mainstream RPG games to appear on the Game Boy Color, Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver continued to expand the Pokémon universe, adding 100 Pokémon, held items and real-time events, thanks to an internal game clock. Featuring wireless communication functionality, the new Virtual Console versions of the games allow Trainers to trade and battle wirelessly and both games are compatible with Pokémon Bank. Through Pokémon Bank, players will be able to bring the Pokémon that they catch in the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver into Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon when those games launch. Fans who purchase Pokémon Gold or Pokémon Silver at retail or in Nintendo eShop before 21 September 2018 will receive a special code which will grant them the Mythical Pokémon Celebi in the Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon video games.

A Special Item for Pokémon Bank Subscribers

Pokémon Bank has been updated! And right now, all Pokémon Bank users can receive a Z-Crystal for Mew.

Pokémon Bank has undergone major updates and now works with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, making it easy to transfer Pokémon from multiple copies of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon—including the downloadable versions—to a single game! You can also use it to transfer Pokémon you've caught in the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, and Pokémon Yellow into your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. Pokémon from Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y can also be brought into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon in the same way.

To celebrate this update, all Pokémon Bank subscribers can get a Mewnium Z, the Z-Crystal that only Mew can use. When you launch the new Pokémon Bank and receive the gift, a new Wonder Card will appear in your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. You can use the Mystery Gift function to claim your Mewnium Z.

Note that this gift is for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon players only. It is not available in Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Also, you can get only one Mewnium Z, even if you use Pokémon Bank with multiple Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games. If you have Pokémon Bank, be sure to use the service by October 2, 2017, to get your Mewnium Z.

POKÉMON BANK UPDATE NOW LIVE: NEW FEATURES AND COMPATIBILITY WITH POKÉMON SUN AND POKÉMON MOON ADDED!

Pokémon Bank players can now receive a Mewnium Z and transfer their Pokémon from Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow to their copy of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today details for the latest big Pokémon Bank update.

Pokémon Bank, the online service which enables players to withdraw and deposit to and from various Pokémon titles, has received a new update today making it compatible with the latest games Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon*. This means that it is now possible to bring Pokémon that do not natively appear in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon into the games so they can join you in battles and adventures.

This highly anticipated update even allows players to transfer their Pokémon from the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console games Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow into Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Previously hidden Pokémon parameters from these Virtual Console games like Abilities, Natures, Sp. Atk and Sp. Def will become visible after sending them over to Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. All Pokémon sent this way will have some great individual strengths.

Two new features have been added to the Pokémon Bank in the update, the Pokédex and adventure records. The Pokédex feature will allow players to see information about Pokémon registered in each of the Pokémon series games that have been connected to Pokémon Bank in the National Pokédex. All information for Pokémon registered from past titles will now be available all in one place. The other new feature, Adventure Records, will allow players to look back on their adventures in the Pokémon series. Figures and stats like the number of Pokémon caught or the number of wild Pokémon encountered will be accessible from the saved data from each players previous Pokémon series games registered to Pokémon Bank.

When players deposit Pokémon into Pokémon Bank, they can receive Poké Miles relative to the number of Pokémon they deposit and how long they are deposited for. These Poké Miles can be received as Battle Points, which can be exchanged in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon for various items. This means that players who have already got many Pokémon deposited in their Pokémon Bank accounts from previous games may find themselves getting a great number of Poké Miles!

Finally, players who access Pokémon Bank during 25 Jan – 2 October 2017 will be able to claim a limited-time special Mewnium Z, the Z-Crystal for the Mythical Pokémon Mew, which cannot be obtained through normal gameplay**. By giving Mewnium Z to a Mew which knows the move Psychic, it will be able to use the powerful Z-Move Genesis Supernova.
