In anticipation of the upcoming movie release, Detective Pikachu, the Pokemon Company has released a line or merchandise that gives small glimpses into the movie.
The first product is a Detective Pikachu trading card game. Many millenials will remember that Pokemon had its own popular trading card game in the 1990s, with certain rare cards fetching hundreds or even thousands of dollars on the resell market years later.
The new card game features version of Pokemon that will be seen in the movie, including Detective Pikachu himself in his signature detective hat.
The Pokemon Company has also released Detective Pikachu’s hat itself, complete with pointy yellow ears.
The movie’s merchandise also includes building sets similar to LEGOs, called Mega Construx sets.
The Detective Pikachu Movie itself is set for release on May 10, 2019.
