The Pokémon Company announced plans to sell Detective Pikachu merchandise starting this coming April with the release of a Detective Pikachu trading card set and booster pack. There will reportedly be 26 cards included in the Detective Pikachu set which include Detective Pikachu himself, as well as variations of Pokémon based on their appearance in the live action film.
The Pokémon Company to Sell Detective Pikachu Merch
If trading cards aren’t your thing, you’ll also be able to purchase accessories and apparel via the Pokemon Center online shop. Included among the Pokémon Center’s Detective Pikachu selection are some adorable Noctowl “Fresh Coffee” t-shirts and neon designs based around Ryme City staples like the Hi-Hat Cafe.
We appreciate how all of the designs coordinate well with one another, which is emphasized in promo images like the one where three different patches are displayed together on a backpack.
Overall, it’ll be easy for fans to mix and match Detective Pikachu apparel, like combining a Noctowl “Fresh Coffee” hat and Hi-Hat Cafe shirt. While we’re already itching to get our hands on a Noctowl “Fresh Coffee” mug, there’s one item worth mentioning that grabs attention more than most – a Detective Pikachu hat complete with a cute pair of stuffed ears.
The hat is absolutely adorable and offers a nice cosplay vibe to help immerse you into the world of Detective Pikachu. Other items of note include a tin lunch box, action figures, and Lego figures. After reviewing some of the images, what do you think of the new Detective Pikachu merchandise?
