A special Detective Pikachu amiibo is in the works, too. This amiibo features a sleuthing Pikachu that's larger than the standard amiibo, and when used with your game, it can unlock short videos that may contain helpful hints for your investigation.

I still want Danny DeVito as Pikachu. :(



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

I think it is weird that they did not announce this yesterday at the Nintendo Direct Mini.



So it's begun.... the microtransactionisation of the Pokemon franchise



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I've not played them and know nothing about them. Didn't even know there were F2P ones on 3DS.

You mean because of the amiibo? I can see how that would bother you as a hardlycore gamer.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
