A few days ago, the Pokemon Company teased a new Pokemon videogame that’s not going to be part of the main series. When they recently unveiled this top secret new game, it became clear why it’s being distanced from the main franchise – because it features the popular electric rodent Pikachu doing something that people won’t expect him to do: talk, and solve mysteries.
The reveal came via the latest episode of “Professional-Style of Work,” which is a show on Japanese TV network NHK. The episode featured Pokemon producer and current CEO of the Pokemon Company Tsunekazu Ishihara revealing the game and Pikachu’s role as the player’s senior detective partner.
