We played Detective Pikachu on the Nintendo 3DS and while we found it a great game that harkened back to classic mystery games I enjoyed playing on the PC back in the 90s. It also served as the framework for one of the biggest feature films this summer. However, while players were able to solve the main mystery of the game by the time it concluded, there was one mystery still left dangling at the end of game, what traumatic event happened to Detective Pikachu before the start of the game?

The Pokémon Company made a game announcement at today’s Pokémon business event, Detective Pikachu 2 will be coming to the Nintendo Switch and it will continue and conclude the story set in the original Detective Pikachu game. For anyone who might have seen the feature film, don’t be surprised if the game ends differently than the film did!

Detective Pikachu 2 is coming exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

Sleep seemed to be the word of the day at the recent Pokémon business event.

Pokémon Sleep promises to do for sleeping what Pokémon Go did for walking. We have no further details about how this application will work other than the fact it will use your smartphone to record your sleeping habits.

A new Bluetooth device called the Pokémon Go Plus +, an updated version of the popular Pokémon Go Plus accessory, will assist in monitoring sleep when you put it on your bed’s mattress as you sleep. It will also function as a Pokémon Go Plus when you’re not sleeping.

Pokémon Sleep is coming to SmartPhones in 2020. Pokémon Go is out now for SmartPhones.

The Pokémon Company’s biggest announcement at their official business conference was Pokémon Home, a new application that plans to integrate your ongoing Pokémon collection among wide variety of Pokémon games on multiple platforms.

It is possible this application could be the Hub of all Pokémon content I have been waiting for since the 3DS was announced? Pokémon Home will offer full integration with the recent Pokémon games and services including Pokémon Bank on 3DS, Pokémon Go for smartphones, Pokémon Lets Go Pikachu and Eevee and the upcoming Pokémon Sword and Shield games on the Nintendo Switch.

Most importantly, this application will support trading with other local Pokémon players, although they admit the process for how this will work is still being worked on.

Pokémon Home is coming to Smartphones and Nintendo Switch in 2020.
