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.
Emilia Christie works as a GNN news reporter and has an interest in the web of mysteries enmeshing Ryme City.
If Emilia goes live on location, you can be sure Meiko Okamoto is behind the camera. The two team up to make sure no story in Ryme City goes unreported.
Emilia and Meiko’s boss is Roger Clifford, a producer for GNN and one of the nicest guys around. He’s quick with a kind word for Tim, even when they’ve just met.
Ethan Graham is the president of GNN. The network has really taken off recently, and that’s in no small part due to Ethan’s hard work.
It remains unclear whether Mimikyu is on the GNN payroll, but the otherwise shy Pokémon sure loves being in front of the camera. It’s constantly looking for the chance to be on TV.
Brad McMaster is a lieutenant on the Ryme City police force who has his own unshakeable theories about what’s going on around town. He travels with the stoic Manectric at his side. With its keen sense of smell, it makes a valuable partner.
Then there’s Mike Baker, the head of the Baker Detective Agency and a former associate of your dad’s. He can always rely on his quick and loyal Accelgor.
Frank Holiday is an inspector for the Ryme City Police Department. Holiday and Baker go way back, and in Baker’s line of work, it’s good to have friends on the force. Holiday’s also looking for Harry’s whereabouts.
Also working at the Baker Detective Agency is Amanda Blackstone, an assistant mostly known for her love of fast boats—and for putting Pikachu in his place when he gets into the snacks. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.
Pikachu is a sucker for a perfect cup of coffee, and Pablo knows just how to make it. He’s the owner of the Hi-Hat Café, which is Pikachu’s preferred stop when he needs a hot cup of joe. Apparently Pablo’s Hi-Hat Blend is out of this world.

In Pika Prompts, Pikachu won’t only give helpful hints, he’ll also say some cool things…or just goof around.
