Get those detective hats on, trainers, as Detective Pikachu is coming to Pokémon GO. As of the 7th of May to the 17th of May Pokémon GO will be celebrating the release of the Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie. During the event trainers and players will see an increased number spawns of Pokémon that will be featured in the upcoming blockbuster. As well as select Pokémon that’ll be active raid Pokémon, which are also featured in the movie. What’s more is that if you’re lucky enough you’ll be graced and photo-bombed by the Detective himself (well, actually, it’s just a Pikachu in a detective hat) and even have a chance to catch it.
During the event players will also receive double XP for catching Pokémon. Specially themed field research will also be available, but for a limited time… possibly for as long as the event runs. And, themed avatar items will be available for the fashionistas in the Style Shop. To put it simply – it’s Elementary, my dear Watson.
