We’ve been talking about Detective Pikachu for the past few days over on this site, and that is because we’ve been having a blast playing it. The game even includes support for a special Detective Pikachu amiibo, which can unlock special videos called “Pika Prompts” that players may have missed in chapters of the game they already completed.

This is no mere amiibo, Detective Pikachu is large and very well designed. Let’s take a closer look at it with an unboxing and show how it works!

Detective Pikachu is out now exclusively for Nintendo 3DS systems.

Get Legendary Pokemon Raiku or Entai From Target Stores Later This Month April 3, 2018

Today, The Pokémon Company has finally announced how they will be distributing this month’s legendary Pokémon Raiku and Entai. Take a look:

Retail store Target will distribute codes for the event on during the last week of April. No further details have been given, including exactly WHERE Target customers should be expected to go to find the codes.

I understand The Pokémon Company wants to give trainers a little challenge when distributing these legendary Pokémon, but this is a little ridiculous. GameStop stores are smaller and have an easy to find staff briefed on store promotions. In my experience, Target stores are huge and employ lots of people, many of which will likely not get briefed on the event. Which isle will customers need to look to find the codes? Who will we have to talk to that may know what is going on? We will have to find out for ourselves starting on April 22nd.

Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are out now exclusively on Nintendo 3DS systems.

Detective Pikachu Prequel Story Free on Kindle April 3, 2018

I just wanted to give you all a heads up about something you may have missed out on. The Pokémon Company and Amazon have partnered to offer a free prequel story to the new 3DS game Detective Pikachu. The specific free story is called Detective Pikachu Episode 0: Eevee’s Case and it is published by The Pokémon Company.

If you’re not a Kindle owner, it may take some wrangling to get this story for yourself, despite the fact that it is free. As of the time of this post, Kindle purchases can only be made on the Amazon.com website, and cannot be made through a smart device’s Amazon app. You’ll also need the Kindle app on a Kindle-enabled device like the iPhone to read the story once it is added to your account.

We may end up reviewing the story in the future but for now, if you’re a Kindle user interested in Detective Pikachu, you should give it a look!
