    Can anyone else read what that card number is? I'm trying to add it to my sheet but can't quite make it out.

    So does this mean we probably won't get the Detective Yoshida in English?

    No, the English website says there will be 27 cards and has a section for 1 unrevealed promo.

    I dont so if anything we would get one of Tim (justice smith), if they are going to print a 'real' trainer card in english. Yoshida's card is merely fan service for a very famous Japanese actor - would be no appetite amongst the standard western pokemon fanbase for such a card!

    There are some chains of theater that will be giving a pack of 2 cards which includes that Pikachu and a mystery card.
    AMC
    Edit: or maybe all of them will be like that as a surprise.

    That's the interesting thing. I saw a small image of the Japanese version of this Detective Pikachu and thought for sure that it would be SM170 the Detective Pikachu promo in the Figure Collection. That means there is still another Detective Pikachu yet to be seen.

    So we have 27 cards now:
    • 18 from the set
    • 3 GX promos
    • 3 in-store event promos
    • 3 Detective Pikachu promos - SM170 (unrevealed), SM190 & SM194

    Detective Yoshida is either a secret card not counted in this 27 card total or we aren't getting it.

    From Detective Pikachu's card description:
    "He was the partner of Tim's father, Harry, who has gone missing."
    Is this a spoiler to people who haven't played the game, or was that revealed in an earlier trailer? I know it's only a small thing and not a major detail, but I'm just curious.

    But 18 from the set plus this, the figure collection promo, the four existing promos, and the 3 store giveaway ones is 27 cards

    Okay but did anyone see Torterra? That may be the best movie design yet.
