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?

Story hero Tim Goodman explores the big city

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!

Investigating in Ryme City

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.

Emilia Christie

Emilia Christie works as a GNN news reporter and has an interest in the web of mysteries enmeshing Ryme City.

Meiko Okamoto

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.

Roger Clifford

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

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

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.

Mike Baker

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

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.

Amanda Blackstone

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.

Pablo Millan

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.

We’re Only Getting Started

These are just a handful of the charming people and intriguing Pokémon you’ll bump into around the city. It’s up to you to find out what role they play as you unravel the mystery of Detective Pikachu.

Take It Easy

Want to experience the story of Detective Pikachu without worrying about getting stuck or stumped? Turn on easy mode and let Pikachu show you the way. He’ll gruffly tell you what to do and where to go next, so you can follow the story without missing a beat.
