Detective Pikachu Returns Pokemon

Have you been curious as to how the team behind Detective Pikachu Returns decided which Pokemon to include? Director Yasunori Yanagisaw recently shared insight during an interview with ComicBook.

For example, Growlithe lets players follow scents, Darmanitan can smash rocks, and Luxray is able to peer through walls. But many additional Pokemon will appear in the environments players can explore.

U on Wii U – unless you count the Luigi U DLC or Switch port. It’s been described as an “evolution.” The hook this time around are Wonder Flowers, which mix things up by changing certain things like having pipes come alive. Also new is the Elephant Mario power-up and the inclusion of Daisy as a playable character.
