Detective Pikachu skips its way into Pokémon Go

Detective Pikachu

Detective Pikachu is hitting theatres this week! To celebrate, Niantic have added some matching content in Pokémon Go.

According to the Pokémon Go website, this update releases a host of new and exclusive Pokémon out in the wild. This will, of course, include the detective with his little sleuth hat. The furry yellow star will also be available as a raid, and may even photobomb you when taking AR pictures. You can join in on the fun too with this set of avatar items below.

Other known updates include:

  • Increased encounters for Pokémon featured in the movie (e.g. Psyduck)
  • Double XP for catching Pokémon
  • Themed Special Research

The update will be available to Pokémon Go trainers worldwide at 2 pm on May 7th (Singapore time), two days ahead of the movie.
