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!

Livin’ in the City

Ryme City: This thriving metropolis is the ideal place for people and Pokémon to live in harmony. But strange things must be simmering under the surface to justify the immense investigative power that you and Pikachu bring to the scene. What could be going on in the shadows of such a beautiful place? 

Pikachu and You

Pikachu isn’t alone in his missions in Ryme City. He’ll be traveling with a young fellow by the name of Tim Goodman…and that’s you. You’ve just hit town to look for your missing father, Detective Harry Goodman, and it doesn’t take long for you to get caught up in the whirlwind of the big city. Like your old man, you’re sharp as a tack. And by the way, you’re the only one who can understand the speech of the Pikachu at your side.

Hit the Bricks

The mysteries of Ryme City aren’t gonna solve themselves. It’s up to you and your brilliant companion to crack each case. With you analyzing evidence and Pikachu getting the word on the street from other Pokémon, your teamwork can get to the bottom of everything going on in the big city. Discover the clues, hear from all the witnesses, and solve the cases!

Disturbing the Peace

Ryme City is a place where people and Pokémon live together in harmony, but recently reports have come in about friendly Pokémon suddenly becoming violent and attacking people. Our sleuths soon discover that Harry was pursuing the case of the rampaging Pokémon. Why are the Pokémon becoming enraged? And will we ever find out what happened to Harry? More will be revealed in due time… 

What to Make of Mewtwo?

Of all the Pokémon popping up in Ryme City and beyond, Mewtwo stands out like a sore thumb. It has tremendous psychic power and can communicate with people telepathically, but it does appear to avoid interaction as much as it can.

Welcome to the Neighborhood

It seems like everyone you cross paths with in Ryme City has a story to tell. And to get to the bottom of your investigation, you’ll need to hear them all out. Let’s meet some of the people you’ll spend time with as your investigations progress.

In Detective Pikachu, if you have a Detective Pikachu amiibo, you’ll be able to view all of the Pika Prompts—videos of Pikachu saying and doing various things—you’ve seen or might have missed during the story. In Pika Prompts, Pikachu won’t only give helpful hints, he’ll also say some cool things…or just goof around.
