Unboxing: Detective Pikachu TCG – Pikachu & MewTwo GX Case Files

by Kat Wheat

The Pokémon Detective Pikachu TCG set is a small sub-set of the Pokemon Trading Card game based on the movie Detective Pikachu. Released on March 29th 2019, the cards are available in numerous different sets: including a metal lunch box and a few “case File” sets; two of which – the Detective Pikachu Case File and the Detective Pikachu MewTwo GX Case File are unboxed in the video below.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu TCG card booster packs contain 4 cards as opposed to the usual 10 and they all feature Pokemon with their CGI-based unique look from the forthcoming movie. There are a total of 18 regular cards in the set and a whopping 8 secret rares! You can also get Detective Pikachu-themed promo cards from selected retailers (including Game in the UK) when purchasing any of these sets!

Ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City – a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world – they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

Detective Pikachu is released in UK cinemas on May 10th 2019.
