OK, did April Fools' get moved up this year? Because this "Detective Pikachu" trailer still doesn't seem like a real thing.
Yes, The Pokémon Company is getting pretty ambitious to celebrate the 20th anniversary of "Pokémon Red" and "Pokémon Blue's" first release. There's already a Pokémon fighting game and a Pokémon augmented reality game slated for release this year.
Now, the company is adding to that roster with some sort of Sherlock Holmes / Pokémon crossover. The game is coming out on the 3DS digital store in Japan for about $12.50.
