The Pokémon Company has this week unveiled an upcoming line of merchandise for their upcoming live-action Pokémon movie, Detective Pikachu, and we don’t know what to think.
While we’re almost over the unveiling of the fleshy, expression-filled face of Mr. Mime, The Pokémon Company is back to remind us just how much we really don’t want our adorable little cartoon pocket monsters to all of a sudden become real.
First off, the movie is getting its own set of Pokémon Trading Cards with the Detective Pikachu TCG that’ll offer four-card booster packs that feature newly designed packaging to go along with the film. There are 26 new cards in total featuring Pikachu, Charizard, Greninja, and more, all depicted in their movie likeness.
These boosters will be available from March 29.
Also available will be a Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu Case File which contains a single foil promo card, a metallic coin, and two Detective Pikachu booster packs and one standard Pokémon TCG booster pack.
Pokémon TCG: Detective Pikachu Charizard-GX Case File and the Greninja-GX Case File also contains a foil promo card as well as one foil oversize card featuring Charizard-GX and Greninja-GX, respectively. They both also contain five Detective Pikachu booster packs and two Pokémon TCG booster packs.
Finally, there’s the Collector Chest which comes with seven Detective Pikachu booster packs, two Pokémon TCG booster packs, a collector’s pin, and one Pokémon notepad and sticker sheet all of which comes in a metal case.
Outside of the TCG, the merch line also includes a Deerstalker hat complete with Pikachu ears, a series of action figures, and much, much more.
