The Pokémon Company dropped an array of updates during its recent Pokémon Presents stream. One announcement that stood out was – a fresh trailer for the much-anticipated sequel, “Detective Pikachu Returns.” The title is set to hit the Nintendo Switch consoles on October 6, 2023.

“Detective Pikachu Returns” will feature Pikachu as a hard-boiled detective with a mild caffeine addiction. Pikachu and his companion Tim Goodman plunge headfirst into a series of perplexing cases in the bustling Ryme City.

This metropolis is inhabited by both Pokémon and humans. The plot unfurls as Pikachu and Tim join forces with an ensemble of Pokémon and humans, working together to unravel a web of enigmatic incidents that perplex the city.

The new trailer offers a glimpse into the gameplay mechanics. Players will be tasked with unraveling intricate clues and employing a casebook to crack the mysteries. The partnership dynamic comes into play, with other Pokémon lending their special abilities to the investigation – be it keen olfactory senses to track down hidden clues or even the physical prowess to bash through walls.

Pre-orders are on for “Detective Pikachu Returns.” So, you have a chance to book a copy before the release date. 

The spotlight during the Pokemon Presents stream also shone on the forthcoming expansion for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Dubbed “The Teal Mask,” the first installment of this major paid expansion is slated for release on September 13th. This expansion will let players take a school trip to the exotic land of Kitakami. The second part of this expansion is called “The Indigo Disk,” and it is scheduled for a winter release.

The inclusion of Mew and Mewtwo’s in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet as part of an exclusive event also comes as a pleasant gift for players.

Players with a base Nintendo Switch membership can now delve into the nostalgia of the past by reliving the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The game was originally released for the Game Boy Color in 2000.
