  1. Welcome to the fifty-fourth week of my Pokémon feature here on Game Podunk! In case you missed the last one, check it out! Stay tuned for future entries coming every Friday. Before I get things started this week: Anyone interested in grabbing the Limited Edition plushies available at GameStop may want to stop in sooner vs. later. Call your local store to check availability! -------------------------------- Detective Work As fun as it would be to steal the opening from A Study in Scarlet, and inject Pikachu as Sherlock Holmes into the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle...I“m not as well-read as I“d like to be. Ever since the announcement of Great Detective Pikachu came out of Japan, the Internet“s been running wild with it anyway. So much of what“s been presented to us in the initial trailer is way out of left field. Twitter went crazy; even I had some fun. Within hours, “Detective Pikachu” all but became a meme. If a localization of the game wasn“t already in the works, you can bet your paycheck it will be now. Way back in 2013, we heard about a “top-secret Pikachu game that [uses playfulness as a weapon to take over the world].” Before it had much of an identity, all we saw from the game was its emphasis on motion-capture. There were plenty of people unsettled by that image at the time. Eventually, “Detective Pikachu” became something to keep an eye on, then faded into the shadows. Many assumed it had been canceled, until its surprise reveal earlier this week. It“s coming to the 3DS in Japan on February 3rd, with no other regions specified...yet. I've even seen a thread that suggests the game borrows from Boston, aesthetically. Pokémon, as a franchise, doesn“t often venture outside of its comfort zone. Even its spin-offs like Pokémon Ranger, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, and Pokémon Rumble often borrow structures from other established series and intertwine them with the Pokémon world and conventional gameplay mechanics. Even the obtuse nature of Pokémon Conquest still stayed pretty grounded in what makes the Nobunaga“s Ambition games great, to some. But this? Great Detective Pikachu? I don“t recall Pokémon going this far out on a limb since Pokémon Snap. Here“s the deal -- a bossy, yet loveable... 'talking' Pikachu (that has the voice of a grizzled man in his late '30s) teams up with a kid to solve Pokémon crimes. Just look at some of these screenshots. You“d think you were playing a pinball game, with how much this concept bounces off the walls. There“s plenty of infamous examples of games where Nintendo is experimental with one of its major characters. Games from the past come to mind like Super Mario Land and Link“s Awakening. And, at present, you can always count on Kirby to go a little crazy sometimes. But I don“t think Pokémon has ever ventured this far from the norms before. I“m in love with the idea. I just hope the game gets localized sooner versus later! How do you all feel about Great Detective Pikachu? Do you think it“s just an overinflated meme, at this point, or is there potential for greatness?
