The game welcomes players back to Ryme City where humans and Pokémon live side by side. The city’s famous detective duo, Tim and Pikachu, have taken on all sorts of cases in Ryme City while still searching for Tim’s missing father, Harry.
When a jewel theft occurs, the case sets the duo down a path toward the answers to their burning questions:
- Why did Harry go missing?
- Why are so many Pokémon-related incidents occurring in Ryme City?
- Why is Tim the only one who can understand what Pikachu is saying?
- And will Tim and Pikachu be able to find Harry?
Tackle Cases with Tim and Pikachu!
To advance in the story, players must solve cases as they occur, collect testimonies and evidence and complete the case notebook. Players will be able to gather this information by investigating scenes and interviewing people and Pokémon. The testimonies and evidence will serve as clues to solve these exciting cases and organize all of this information to help you make your deductions.
Gathering statements is a staple of investigations. In this game, you will be able to gather information not only from humans but from Pokémon as well with Pikachu’s help. Some of these Pokémon may even use their special skills to assist your investigations. Searching for clues together with Pokémon can help you crack cases wide open.
