Just one more thing...

With Pokémon X and Y tearing up the charts, the time to release something different is once again upon us. We’ve seen plenty of Pokémon spin-offs in the past such as Mystery Dungeon, Colosseum and a game where you literally had to just take photos of the critters. But the next game will have you solving poké-crimes instead.

According to Serebii, the Pokemon Company will be releasing a Pikachu-centric title for 3DS that has players teaming up with the electric rat to investigate crimes. Players will need to defeat an evil version of Pikachu and I’m totally not making this up.



The game will also feature some 3DS camera use, as your Pikachu can copy your facial movements….which is downright terrifying. Apparently, the game has a two year development cycle, but no one knows when work actually began on it.

    It would have been awesome if you were investigating Pikachu’s murder.

            Nay, sir! It was Mr. Green! He found yellow to offend his sensibilities! And he used the pokeball to deliver the final blow!

    Sorry, this isn’t about the new Pikachu game, but there’s something you MUST know! Save in Lumiose City! The reason is because your Pokemon will INSTANTLY go up to LEVEL 100 and instantly complete your Pokedex, and it you save and turn off, when you get back on, there’s 90% chance that the game will get your Pokemon to LEVEL 100 and the Pokedex will be completed!! IT’S TRUE!!! No matter what you do, it will always work and worked like a charm for me!!

    So save in Lumiose City because it always work 99% of the time!!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read my comment, as I want this to happen to anyone else. And I apologize for interrupting your conversation. But carry on!
