Burger King has officially started offering the Pokemon: Detective Pikachu toys we reported on a few days ago. If you’re interested in any of the options pictured above, you’ll need to purchase a King Jr Meal.

Six toys are up for grabs in total. They include Detective Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Mewtwo, Arcanine, Loudred, and Psyduck. We know that Detective Pikachu lights up, Arcanine shoots a fireball from its mouth, and Mewtwo has a ball of psychic energy that it can hold and drop by moving its arms.

The Pokemon website published a new article on Pokemon: Detective Pikachu today. We get some additional insight into the film, thanks to some commentary shared directly by the team. There’s talk about why the 3DS game’s plot was featured instead one of the franchise’s other stories, what it was like recreating Pokemon for the big screen, and more.

Here’s the full report:

Something fans long wanted to see was Danny DeVito playing the role of Detective Pikachu. Fans even petitioned for DeVito to take on the part prior to the 3DS title coming west. Those wishes never materialized, as Kaiji Tang voiced the character in the game and Ryan Reynolds was given the role in the upcoming movie.

In an interview with Game Informer, producer Cale Boyter commented on whether the Pokemon: Detective Pikachu movie team knew about fans’ interest DeVito. VFX producer Greg Baxter also revealed something noteworthy, which is that lines were taken from assorted actors’ past roles and were animated in an early version of Pikachu to the audio to see how it looked.

If you’ve been keeping up with superhero movies over the past few years, a term you’ve probably heard about is the “Marvel Cinematic Universe”. It’s Marvel’s way of integrating its different movies and characters into a shared universe. Pokemon could end up going through something similar in the future.

This summer, Detective Pikachu will be the first live-action Pokemon movie from Legendary Entertainment. Based on comments from producer Ali Mendes, it sounds like he doesn’t want to stop there, and perhaps create something like a “Pokemon Cinematic Universe”.

The next Pokemon Funko Pop has been unveiled. Announced today, Charmander will be receiving its own figure as shown above.

Funko says that the new figure will be available soon. Take a look at the official packaging below. Pre-orders are open on Amazon here.

Nintendo, Creatures, and Game Freak have filed a new trademark for Armored Mewtwo in Japan. It was applied for on February 18 of this year.

It’s unclear if the trademark will be used in the future. That being said, perhaps it’s possible that Armored Mewtwo could tie into Pokemon Sword/Shield. We haven’t covered this here, but one of the more prominent rumors concerning the games is that there will be Armored Evolutions.

Pokemon GO

Total spending on the Pokemon mobile games has surpassed $2.5 billion, according to a Sensor Tower report. That goal was reached with a combined six titles, but Pokemon GO accounts for roughly 98% of all player spending.

Outside of Pokemon GO, Pokemon Shuffle Mobile has grossed roughly $25 million. Pokemon Duel, Pokemon Quest, Pokemon: Magikarp Jump, and Pokemon TCG Online follow next.
