    and is listed on the official site as "Cinematic Adventure Game", with the official Nintendo site also listing it as a puzzle solving Cinematic Adventure Game. It takes place in Rhyme City and you the human character called Tim Goodman who has come to the city for a currently unknown reason. When he meets with Pikachu, the story begins. It is a 1 Player game and has no online or communication features.

    Nice to see the Detective game with Pikachu in it that was rumored a good while back might actually see the light of day.

    Okay, we need Cam Clarke voicing that Pikachu in English. I want that Pikachu to have a ridiculously deep voice in English too!

    I never thought I'd see the day where I'd want Cam Clarke to voice a Pikachu...

    After seeing that trailer, if it comes out in English, I'd really love a Japanese voice option on it. Given that this is Pokemon though, and Nintendo really doesn't want us seeing or hearing Japanese Pokemon material, I'm guessing an English release would be dub only :(

    I'd love it if the games had voice acting in it.

    though it's fun to have a head canon voice for everyone.

    I just hope this game has the same emotional level of Professor Layton and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

    Someone on reddit posted a picture of the code cards they're handing out for Mew. It looks neat. I'm sure it's an unpopular opinion, but I kinda wish all the legends were being distributed there so I could collect all the cards for them.

    So, Apparently the US Pokemon National Championships is being held in C-Bus this year.
    Not that it matters to me, I don't play competitively (I've been playing Pokemon since 1999, but I don't strategize beyond type-advantages) nor am I at all into the TCG (I buy them for the card artwork), but it would be nice to attend.
    Three and a half years ago, I had Jury Duty during one of the TCG Tourneys at the Convention center.

    I'm sure someone could grab a spare code for you. I'm asking for four and don't want to be too greedy, but I'll see if I could get any extras later.

    Hope your dad feels better.

    Edit:
    Also WHERE DID THAT RBY GYM LEADER REMIX COME FROM

    Picked up my Mew cards, they were only allowed to give two. I'll visit the other local store to get my other two.

    There were a few other people in the store looking for 20th Anniv stuff. They had a couple of those figurines in Ultra Balls left, but said the plushies sold out immediately.

    I really wish Nintendo would do these as an online d/l or at least make codes available online after GS gives out a certain number.

    I didn't ask how much the previous ones they got but for Mew, each of the two GSs only had 150 of them.
