Pokémon Detective Pikachu Card Reveals

Today The Pokémon Company International revealed three new cards for the Pokémon Trading Card (TCG) game featuring Mr. Mime, JigglyPuff and Psyduck, as seen in the upcoming live-action movie, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu.” These Pokémon were some of the breakout stars from the highly-viewed first trailer for the movie.

Like the Detective Pikachu, Charizard and Greninja TCG cards previously announced, the newly revealed cards depict the Pokémon in their CGI movie likenesses and will be available at selected retailers across Europe starting on March 29th, 2019.

A First Look at Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu Cards

Image

Fans everywhere are anxiously awaiting the theatrical release of the first live-action Pokémon movie, POKÉMON Detective Pikachu. To celebrate the upcoming film, a special selection of 26 new Pokémon Trading Card Game cards will be released, inspired by some of the Pokémon that will appear on the big screen. Let's look at some of the cards that show off these Pokémon as they appear in the film.

Jigglypuff: With its big blue eyes, soft pink fur, and stylish curl, Jigglypuff is the epitome of adorable. This Fairy-type Pokémon isn't a heavy hitter, but its Healing Melody attack will heal 10 damage from each of your Pokémon.

Mr. Mime: Mr. Mime may be sporting a smile, but we can't help but feel a bit unnerved by its vacant stare. Still, we would definitely take advantage of its Pantomime Ability, which allows you to switch one of your face-down Prize cards with the top card of your deck. It's certainly a useful move if you have a powerful card trapped in your Prize cards.

Psyduck: Poor Psyduck seems to be suffering from a major headache! Given its soft-looking feathers, we wouldn't be against comforting it with a big hug. Perhaps Psyduck is suffering from the pain of knowing that it can't attack without becoming Confused. And that just makes us more sympathetic to the little Pokémon!

These are just a few of the cards that fans will be able to find in the Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu collection. Stay tuned for more fun reveals! Remember, booster packs for this special set will not be sold separately, so look for them in special collections starting March 29, 2019, where Pokémon TCG products are sold.

POKÉMON Detective Pikachu - "Big" | In Theaters This May

The world of Pokémon comes to life!

The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.

Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.

The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

“POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” also stars Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) as Tim; Kathryn Newton (“Lady Bird,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“Godzilla,” “The Last Samurai”) as Lt. Yoshida. Directed by Rob Letterman (“Goosebumps,” “Monsters Vs. Aliens”), the “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” creative filmmaking team includes two-time Oscar nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Gladiator”), production designer Nigel Phelps (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies”) and Oscar-winning editor Mark Sanger (“Gravity”). Visual effects are by Moving Picture Company (“Wonder Woman”) and Framestore (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”).
