A new collaboration has been announced between The Pokemon Company and Pokemon GO developer Niantic. The collaboration will see some uniquely themed Detective Pikachu themed content arrive in the Pokemon GO app.

In celebration of the upcoming release of the live-action Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie starring Ryan Reynolds, Niantic will be bringing a bunch of Detective Pikachu themed content to Pokemon GO. The Pokemon Company is pleased to announce that from May 7th until May 17th, the Pokemon GO app will feature fresh new content that will allow players will be able to capture Pokemon from the movie. Bulbasaur, Jigglypuff, Psyduck, Aipom, Snubbull and many more will appear more frequently for players during the run time of this event.

Other pieces of new content are special raid battles and field research. Players will be able to challenge Pokemon with starring roles in the film as well as acquire movie-themed field research. There will also be a bunch of new avatar items that players will be able to collect, including a detective hat with Pikachu ear and a t-shirt with the Pokemon Detective Pikachu logo on it. Players will also have to watch out for Detective Pikachu photo-bombing images in GO Snapshot. If Detective Pikachu is spotted photo bombing then there is a chance that the player can catch the Pokemon.

Detective Pikachu themed content arriving in Pokemon GO:

  • Detective Hat Pikachu Photobomb - While using GO Snapshot, fans may get photobombed by a Pikachu wearing a detective hat and then be able to catch the Pokemon.
  • More Encounters with Pokemon Seen in the Movie - Pokemon such as Bulbasaur, Jigglypuff, Psyduck, Aipom, and Snubbull, among others, will appear more frequently in the game. Players may also have opportunities to catch Shiny Aipom.
  • Special Raid Battles and Field Research - Players will be able to participate in Raid Battles that challenge Pokemon with starring roles in the film, as well as movie-inspired Field Research.
  • New Avatar Items - Fans will be able to customize their in-game avatars with movie-themed items, including a detective hat with Pikachu ears and a T-shirt featuring the "POK...MON Detective Pikachu" logo.
