Pokémon Detective Pikachu

The Pokémon Company has revealed three Pokémon Trading Card Game cards inspired by the Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie, and featuring Pokémon as they appear in the movie:

  • Jigglypuff

With its big blue eyes, soft pink fur, and stylish curl, Jigglypuff is the epitome of adorable. This Fairy-type Pokémon isn’t a heavy hitter, but its Healing Melody attack will heal 10 damage from each of your Pokémon.

  • Mr Mime

Mr. Mime may be sporting a smile, but we can’t help but feel a bit unnerved by its vacant stare. Still, we would definitely take advantage of its Pantomime Ability, which allows you to switch one of your face-down Prize cards with the top card of your deck. It’s certainly a useful move if you have a powerful card trapped in your Prize cards.

  • Psyduck

Poor Psyduck seems to be suffering from a major headache! Given its soft-looking feathers, we wouldn’t be against comforting it with a big hug. Perhaps Psyduck is suffering from the pain of knowing that it can’t attack without becoming Confused. And that just makes us more sympathetic to the little Pokémon!

The Pokémon Detective Pikachu TCG set comes out on March 29th in Europe, and April 5th in North America.

Pokémon GO

Yesterday, the latest Software update for Pokémon GO began rolling on some (Android) devices. We don’t really know anything about it, other than it’s the one bringing the GO Snapshot feature. It also comes with a brand new loading screen illustration.

Speaking of the GO Snapshot feature, Niantic has revealed that you will be able to have a Pokémon show off one of their moves, in order to take some really impressive pictures.

Here’s a few more pictures for this feature:
