A worldwide release of a physical, complete version of the Detective Pikachu game has been announced!

Coming March 23rd to the Nintendo 3DS, this version of the game contains the first part that was released exclusively to Japan two years ago, as well as an additional, new chapter that concludes the story. In addition, a noticeably large Detective Pikachu Amiibo has also been revealed to go on sale along with the game. Check out the game trailer above!

Get ready to tackle cases in Detective Pikachu, coming to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems in spring 2018! With this tough-talking, coffee-drinking, one-of-a-kind Pikachu by your side, you can talk to witnesses, hunt for clues, and uncover the secrets of Ryme City.

    You know what? I actually excited to play Detective Pikachu. Glad it’s coming to the west. Should be fun to see who voices the characters

  • Govatoo

    OH YES I NEED THE AMIIBO

  • Fedex

    Was on twitter some person asked what’s your favourite region. Out of curiosity as 2 what people replied I had a look and I was glad to see Kalos getting a lot of love.

    • Fedex

      Sinnoh also had plenty of attention.
      Surprisingly many also picked Johto and Alola.

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      Toss up between 3 regions honestly. My fav regions are Johto, Unova, and Alola. Hard to say which one tops the other 2 as they all bring something to the table

    • Butter Geek

      I think that’d be Alola

  • TheGentlemanMonster6893

    well sh!t now a trailer. Not gonna lie this is great. That’s not Ryan Reynolds tho is it? Doesn’t sound like him. Why would they even bother casting two different people to play Pikachu?

    • Govatoo

      because ones a movie and ones a game. different budget

      • TheGentlemanMonster6893

        Still dumb. Why not just cast the person who is in the game? Will be weird hearing Reynolds now…..

        • Govatoo

          because its made by a different company too

          • TheGentlemanMonster6893

            Still dumb xp

        • Ultron

          Because they don’t want some no name voice actor starring in their movie, they want star power.

  • Ultron

    What’s the “3DS” ???? Never heard of it

    • Fedex

      hahaha 👍

    • MenacingCascoon

      The system with all your Pokemon games on it.
      More like what’s the switch??
      No Pokemon? No Smash? No system!

      • Ultron

        Nah all the best pokemon games are from the DS 😉 and you won’t be saying that in about a year or soooo

      • We get it you have no taste in games

  • Maple Seraphp

    That Yanma art is cleaaaaaan

    Also wtf are these voices

  • Butter Geek

    I need that Amiibo

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Wow, this game actually has great potential for it to be a great spin off 😮

  • I hate myself for this (My new profile pic)

    • Maple Seraphp

      Nutt

  • I watched this and when it said March 2018 I got upset that it was a year from now till I realized it’s already 2018 lol

    I really am hyped for this now especially knowing it looks like it also has more to it than the previous Japan exclusive game (Like Alkazam I remember was not mentioned at all by Serebii in the previous game)

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      I also keep forgetting it’s 2018. Doesn’t feel real. Last year was such a wash that I’m not sure where I am now. I just want to get through January and February so we can get to the good stuff starting in March!

  • Shady
    • UnburdenedLegume

      Not enough dark types? completely agree

      • Shady

        Yeah that’s suck but that make them more majestic however.

    • Maple Seraphp

      Oh my god Carvannah is so smaaaaaaaaaaaall

      • Shady

        not the smallest

  • UnburdenedLegume

    What ball fits best with the Oshawott line?

    • Butter Geek

      Dive Ball

      • UnburdenedLegume

        And Emboar?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Really only like Level Ball or Repeat Ball

        • Butter Geek

          Repeat Ball

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Heavy, Level or Luxury.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I have mine in Lure but Dive is just as good.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ok the actual hell…
    Also in case anyone heard my White Copy deleted itself the other night and I painstakingly grinded all night to get back to Nimbasa city and beat Elesa

    Pignite 29
    Drilbur 28
    Dwebble 29

    I really want to catch Axew, Tynamo Cubchoo and or Elgyem

    • Butter Geek

      Beheeyem doesn’t really seem like a mon you’d like

      • EarthenWarrior

        You’d think so but surprisingly it’s onenif the Psychic types I like and that list is very short

  • Bae Nijima

    Not playing through Unova because I don’t even want to touch another Pokemon game for the year but if I was to do so I’d use Pokémon I hadn’t already used in a while

    Audino, Alomomola, Swoobat, Cofagrigus, Stunfisk, Larvesta

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’m pretty sure that my next play through will be Y

      • Bae Nijima

        I’m sorry to hear that

        • TheGentlemanMonster6893

          XD lolz

        • EarthenWarrior

          I thank you for your condolences

      • Govatoo

        Why waste ur time

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        But Y tho

        • EarthenWarrior

          I was waiting for someone to make that joke

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Crap this means I’m predictable

          • Bae Nijima

            He must be Xecuted

          • EarthenWarrior

            My major!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Very unusal choices, why no starter?

      • Bae Nijima

        I’ve used them all and starters are restricting

      • Vlad Vanguine

        Probably because they’re all terrible. Gen 5 was the first time ever, and the last, that the starters were so bad, I couldn’t bring myself to use a single one lol

  • Bae Nijima

    If Pokémon fusion was a thing, but it could only be done between Pokémon or the same evolutionary stage and egg group, what fusions would you want to see?

    • It technically has already happened (Just not in the game)
      As in the Anime Mismagius and Rayquaza fused in a dream and Venusaur and Blastoise fused in an illusion

      Manga also had a fusion between Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres.

      But I’d love to see Samurott and Weavile fuse to become Samuvile or Weavurott

      • Butter Geek

        Evolutionary stage, not the same evo line

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Pleased to announce the top 2 typings of all time are Electric and Dark.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Like officially? Or opinion?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        officially

  • I have such an irrational hatred for Detective Pikachu

    • Why?

    • Vlad

      Same except my hatred for it is rational and makes a lot of sense

  • I kinda wanna draw fusions so gimme a fusion. You can use that website if ya want but you don’t have to and I kinda prefer if you don’t do I can be more creative with it

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I finally beat Clay and started butting heads with those Plasma Pusses
    Badges: 5
    Pignite: 35
    Excadrill: 33
    Dwebble: 32
    Tynamo: 29 (I’m considering replacing since it’s female and docile)

    • Butter Geek

      That’s sexist

      • EarthenWarrior

        I know, im Pokémon sexist, Males only unless the species is feminine

        • Maple Seraphp

          I didn’t know Earthen was a yaoi fan

          • EarthenWarrior

            You keep your yaoi in your pants mister

          • Maple Seraphp

            ….do you know what yaoi is?

        • Butter Geek

          can’t you just make it a Strong Female (like the ones you like looking at)

      • Meh I prefer certain genders too (Except starter because I have gotten so many female starters on accident)

        Like I don’t want a Female Litleo or a Male Buneary or Minchino

        Some Pokémon I like better as certain genders, all I’m saying

  • I lost to N due to the sh*ttiest luck

    I only had Musharna left and since she only has Psychic moves she couldn’t touch N’s Scraggy even though it had 1 HP left

    At least Jupiter the Minchino did well despite her easily succumbing to Darumaka’s Fire Punch

  • Deerlia

    That bowser’s minions segment is more fun that i thought, i literally saved the queen in the regular segment, sort of… still need the chuckola reserve…

  • Maple Seraphp

    Detective Pikachu literally has the visual quality and lip movements of the sonic adventure series

  • Maple Seraphp

    Everyone’s talking about Detective pikachus voice….
    But nobody is noticing the minccino’s voice in the trailer… it sounds like a dying old woman

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PeYARbPHcvk&time_continue=79&ebc=ANyPxKq5ENXZkpycRDGgpOq3LNU5dtPoimka2j5aaV2HmWV_3DDeI6Q8qyhjX9LI0p-knEdOxlCBrTPq64C-oexCwmrK7-QXEw

  • TheGentlemanMonster6893

    Why the hell is the Detective Pikachu amiibo SO BIG. It’s ridiculous looking next to the regular Pikachu amiibo lol

  • Maple Seraphp
    • EarthenWarrior

      I was certain that instead of saving it it would merely suck it dry of energy

  • Oh right I wanted to ask if Jupiter the Minchino was good with its stats

    Level 23
    Female
    Hasty Natured, likes to relax
    Its ability Cute Charm
    Attack: 30
    Defense: 22
    Sp. Attack: 26
    Sp. Defense: 27
    Speed: 50
    Moves: Swift, Sing, Double Slap and Encore

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Honestly without Skill Link it’ll never be that great, but unless you get that from a Grotto in W2 you can’t have it. Probably it’ll be fine though.

  • MenacingCascoon
    • EarthenWarrior

      Teach it Bulldoze

    • TheGentlemanMonster6893

      Ugh…..I like Palpitoad so much, but I really just don’t like Seismitoad

      • I think Seismetoad is just ugly, but a good fighter regardless

        Palpitoad is also one of my favorite Water types (this says a lot based how its my favorite type) it’s just so derpy and adorable too I love Palpitoad

        • Vlad

          Seismetoad IS ugly but also immensely powerful and is one of my top favorite Pokémon for that reason

  • MenacingCascoon

    https://twitter.com/TSMZeRo/status/951914839709974529
    ZeRo is retiring for smash!!!
    NOOOOO

    • Bae Nijima

      Literally whom

      • Maple Seraphp

        One of the most relevant smash players in the entire community. My friend never shuts up about him

    • MenacingCascoon

      Oops didnt mean to post twice myb.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Welp, I’m glad he’s doing things that he actually likes instead of forcing himself of doing the same thing over and over, that’s an actually great step 😮

    • Maple Seraphp

      OH BOI SAMS GONNA BE PISSED

    • UnburdenedLegume

      WHO IS HE AND HOW IS HE SO DAMN CUTE

  • Monkeyfuzz

    But it’s still not Danny Devito http://i.imgur.com/cmYbykJ.gif

  • Maple Seraphp
  • Monkeyfuzz
    • Butter Geek

      Well my excitement for playing BotW just doubled (there’s a scene where she bathes, isn’t there)

      • she isn’t bathing she’s praying to the goddess and she’s fully clothed ya perv

        (hush i know im a hypocrite)

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        *lenny face intensifies*

    • MenacingCascoon

      I hope they put this rendition in smash They need to update smash models!

  • Butter Geek

    What if at the end of the Detective Pikachu Movie he has to make the sacrifice and actually evolve into Detective Raichu?

  • InfinityD4

    so Pop Team Epic has an anime.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Blorg i feel bloated tonight…..I vegged out all day

  • Daedardus

    Oh, Machamp doing the classical d*** in a box gift, huh?

    • Butter Geek

      how? Look at it again

  • shout out to Chandelure for being an amazing pokemon that has a sh*t movepool without TM’s

    also shoutout to flamethrower for being ridiculously late game for literally no reason

    • EarthenWarrior

      well i mean you get Hex and Flame Burst pretty much whenever you catch it, and what TMs would you need all you need to give it is Energy Ball and maybe Psychic or Dark Pulse

    • InfinityD4

      it’s a stone evo what do you expect?

  • Hey ya know what would be cool?

    An in-game music player. Like… if you visit an area, you get its music like in Mario Odyssey or something. I’d much rather continue listening to Route 10 instead of losing it to the battle theme

    • EarthenWarrior

      mmmmmmmm i guess that could work, I wish they would give use editable Pokeballs similar to a template in Animal Crossing
      because so many times i want to customize my All-Star team’s balls…….that sounded wrong…

      Rhyperior Safari
      Emboar Repeat
      Heracross Friend
      Pangoro Ultra
      Golisopod Net
      Aerodactyl Luxury (kinda the only reason mine’s well trained)

      • oooooo… imagine all the designs people could come up with if you could customize them like designs in Animal Crossing. Especially if you could share them

        • EarthenWarrior

          Penises everywhere!

          • 😀

          • Butter Geek

            That’s not a reaction to penises I’d expect from a lesbian

          • It’s more fun to just go along with it

          • EarthenWarrior

            Any ideas for any signature mons?

          • what do you mean

          • EarthenWarrior

            Colors, patterns insignias?
            Like Lopunny having a cream white one to match the fur and the bottom half black with brown speckles

          • Oh! hmm… I think a Salazzle one thats black, dark blue and red with that little heart design it has on its chest would be cool.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i see the design in my head

          • Definitely (If not specific ones, then I make each themed after the Pokémon themselves) but if specific then

            Weavile- Luxury
            Midnight Lycanroc- Moon
            Politoed- Friend
            Samurott- Lure

    • *The want to listen to Route 201 day theme intensifies

      • there ya go

        but like… seriously they could just bring back the Radio from HGSS/GSC and improve it.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I wanted this to also remove the forced Pokeride music.

  • Butter Geek

    Are any of you excited for MCU having Fantastic Four?

    • Maple Seraphp

      Agahahhah NO

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think they will finally be done right so yeah, to a degree I am optimistic.

  • EarthenWarrior

    God damn it Star the mere mention of Odyssey music makes me want to dance awkwardly to my favorite music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfL9MwAFEHg

    • My favorite probably

      • Butter Geek

        I kinda like the Ending Song

    • ShinyXatu

      Good taste Earthen. Keep it up.

      • EarthenWarrior

        if i was in Volbono town i’d probably be gorging on all the food in sight!

    every….time…..Pignite fights an electric type he get’s paralyzed

    • EarthenWarrior

      And he’s Paralyzed again……this time by a Ampharos

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Do they all have Static and/or Thunder Wave? Many Electric moves have paralyse chance. I am playing Uranium at the moment and am Poisoned more than not it seems. If I hadn’t got a pickup ‘mon getting me antidotes I’d not be getting very far.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Always from static

    • Butter Geek

      you forgot an N

      • Shady

        No I don’t

        • TheGentlemanMonster6893

          I think he means in the word “damn” It’s spelled with a silent “n”

          • Shady

            I know

  • ShinyXatu

    I just found this really interesting article. Maybe some of you already know about this if you play Splatoon 2 (which I REALLY want to get back into), but there’s a design feature in the new stage is a clear reference to Animal Crossing. Now remember, the team who developed Splatoon 2 is the same as Animal Crossing. I know it’s probably just because of the general theme of Shellendorf Institute, but I think this is a bigger deal than we think it is.

      I rarely like slow defensive ‘mon in playthroughs I think. Also I’d find the ability annoying.
