Detective Yoshida from ‘Detective Pikachu’ Revealed as Secret Card, Features Real Photo!

Detective Yoshida, a full art Supporter card, will be a secret rare card in the Japanese Detective Pikachu mini-set. The set releases in Japan on April 26th. The card was officially revealed on a Pokemon TCG truck in Japan, like some cards in the past.

Detective Yoshida – Trainer
Supporter

Your opponent reveals their hand. Draw 2 cards.

You may play only 1 Supporter card during your turn (before your attack).

The card is not in our English set. It will likely come to America as a promo card — the official English website for our Detective Pikachu set has a placeholder for one card beneath its promo section. Perhaps it will be given out through a store event or a PokemonCenter.com promotion. We’ll find out soon!

Detective Yoshida has a Snubbull in the Detective Pikachu movie and is played by famous Japanese actor Ken Watanabe. This will be one of the few Pokemon cards to feature a real photo of a human. The uniqueness of this card is probably why Creatures did not reveal it until now, as it was probably meant to be a big surprise for fans!

Thanks goes to Tunu for the photo and translation!

    That's it, we've peaked. I'm getting this and I'm quitting the TCG, there's no way we can get better than this card.


    In all seriousness, I hope we get it in English. There's something really funny to me about this card and I really want to own one.

    speaking of which. this isn't the first time a real life person has been on a card. the Imakuni card in Generations is clearly a photograph of the actual Imakuni person.

    Imakuni? is the only card featuring a real person that we've gotten in the west, but Japan's had several, including a Fairy-type "Mega" Sachiko-EX (Sachiko is one of the members of the three-person group Suzukizan, who sang a few early Pokemon songs in Japan and also includes Imakuni?), model Nicole Fujita in a card with Pikachu, Hironobu Yoshida cosplaying as PokeDude from Teachy TV, the cast of Pokemon Smash! as secret rares in the Japanese equivalent of BW Legendary Treasures, and a few others.

    I am in total agreement Ken Watanabe was in Transformers Age of Extinction as Stride(the blue one) and in both Godzilla Movies; which the second comes out in 2 months. One reason to see Detective Pikachu for me is Ken Watanabe; he is an awesome actor.
