Back on the Case
Detective Pikachu Returns is coming soon, exclusively to Nintendo Switch!
Welcome to Ryme City
A place where humans and Pokémon live side-by-side. In this bustling burg lives a gruff, tough-talking (but surprisingly lovable) Pikachu who loves coffee and calls himself a great detective.
Two Heads Are Better than One
This Pikachu works together with his partner, a young man named Tim Goodman, to solve a series of mysterious incidents that are occurring within the city.
Start the Investigation
We hope you look forward to the mystery-filled adventures of Tim and his chatty Pikachu pal – a sleuthing team that only the world of Pokémon can deliver!
