Detective Pikachu Returns is an anomaly for both the Pokemon series and adventure games at large, but the marriage of the two makes it into something special. It’s earnest, fun, and at times downright satisfying, and even though it’s undoubtedly weird, it’s also the perfect title for introducing new players to the world of mystery games.

Player 2

Detective Pikachu Returns is a fantastic mix of cases to solve, Pokémon and Pikachu’s charismatic figure. Although it is quite an enjoyable experience, it has two major flaws: low difficulty and too short a duration. Those who enjoyed the first entry will definitely have a great time with this sequel, even if it is not the masterpiece some were looking for.


While overtly silly and over-the-top at times, Detective Pikachu Returns effectively balances its light with its extreme darks, wielding its cuteness as a tool to tell an impactful and fairly relevant tale about corruption, felt throughout various cases.


Detective Pikachu Returns is just what we expected: a satisfying conclusion to the story that began with the original Nintendo 3DS game. Despite its simplicity and not too attractive graphics, we found its plot to be entertaining, and the wide variety of Pokémon present in the game will make many fans happy.


Detective Pikachu Returns is a charming Pokemon mystery adventure that is anchored by a heartfelt story.


Detective Pikachu Returns is not only a game that has much charm thanks to the world where it takes place or because its protagonist has all the personality in the world. The exercise of research seems very simple, even essential. However, it is still challenging. Each of the mysteries to be solved becomes more complex, and the challenge is always there.
