Detective Pikachu 2018

Pokemon has blown up quite literally these past few years, for a franchise that has been around so many years, it's a much-welcomed return in my life. Not only does it take me back to my younger years it makes me excited for the younger generation to experience how cool I found it as a kid too. Pokemon Go was short lived in my eyes but I know a lot of people who still use it and take their kids out to play it. I did a post a while back on why I felt Pokemon was a positive influence and I still stick by this, you can read that here: Why is Pokemon a positive influence?


Last year we saw the release of the last Pokemon RPG's released for the Nintendo DS, this was sad news but with the amount of these games that have been brought out over the years maybe a move in a new direction was needed and I guess that's where Detective Pikachu comes in! Yes, I'm a 29 year old woman excited about trying a game out about Pikachu being a detective, I'm fully invested in this game even though it's not been released yet. Detective Pikachu is set in a unique Pokemon world and works alongside a boy called Tim Goodman searching for evidence and clues in order to solve crimes whilst also investigating the disappearance of Tim's father. Tim arrives in Ryme City searching for his father and ends up meeting Pikachu who can surprisingly speak. Now let me warn you Pikachu's voice in this game will come as a huge surprise, I was so taken back by it.




Pikachu tells Tim that he had worked with his father and Tim agrees to work alongside Pikachu to help find him, they do discover his whereabouts with all their hard detective work. Along the way, Pikachu and Tim will find lots of different cases and mysteries which involve them talking to witnesses and gathering testimonies in order for them to discover the truth. Pikachu is able to get clues from other Pokemon in order to help crack cases and make it easier for Tim. It's like a Pokemon version of sherlock holmes which I think will appeal to a lot of people myself included.



Now for those who do find sleuthing hard the game comes with an easy mode, I know a lot of people are against this but you have to remember it's a game for all ages so kids may find this mode easier as well as people who have disabilities. The easy mode will provide handy hints on what to do and where to go next. Detective Pikachu includes all the chapters from the 2016 Japan-exclusive Nintendo eShop release: Detective Pikachu - Birth of a New Duo and adds more content that completes the whole story. A special amiibo of Detective Pikachu is planned for when the game launches on March 23rd it 's supposedly larger than a regular amiibo and will allow players to view all the Pika Prompts from chapters they have completed which includes the ones they missed finding.
