In 2016, Japanese Pokémon fans got to experience the Great Detective Pikachu game that featured an usually smart Pikachu who could actually speak as he teamed up with a young boy named Tim to solve mysteries. Unlike the game, this amiibo doesn't have a release date yet. Nintendo will also add an Easy Mode for players who've been stumped by the game's mysteries. While Ryan Reynolds has the role of Detective Pikachu in the upcoming feature film, he's not the voice you hear in the trailer. Tim's father has gone missing, and Pikachu helps search for him. Side-by-side, the two friends will be investigating clues and interrogate witnesses, including the many Pokemon that inhabit the city.

Detective Pikachu will be available for the 3DS on March 23, alongside a larger-than-average Amiibo figure of the Poke-Sleuth that'll allow players to view short video clips known as Pika Prompts.

To coincide with the game launching, Nintendo will also be releasing a special oversized Detective Pikachu Amiibo on March 23rd, complete with Sherlock Holmes-ian cloche hat (And some major league finger pointing action worthy of Phoenix Wright himself).

However, the announcement of Detective Pikachu for the west means more goodies. With his "A bolt of brilliance!" catchphrase, he'll let you know when he's learned enough to advance the case.

The reason the game has got so much attention is that it involves a talking pikachu, rather than one that just keeps saying his name over and over, so there's actually a proper story for once. And as you can see in the trailer below, Detective Pikachu doesn't like getting bossed around by anyone.
