‘Detective Pikachu’ Blu-Ray Promo Revealed

The Detective Pikachu DVD and Blu-Ray will come with a reprinted Detective Pikachu promo card (SM190).

The original promo was given out to those who saw the movie in theaters, but this new one will have a special stamp over the artwork to distinguish it from the original print.

The movie will be available digitally on July 23rd and physically on August 6th.

Looks like we’re never going to get the Detective Yoshida promo outside of Japan.

As an aside, it seems TPCi and Legendary aren’t yet sure if they’re going to make a sequel to the movie.

Thanks goes to @PatChampYoutube for the heads up on this story!

    Well, thankfully this movie will probably be printed en masse, compared to the Genesect movie. Because we don't want another BW101 situation...

    I hated the movie. I wouldn't want to spend $5 on it on Black Friday, much less $20+ on the Blu-ray. I guess I will just be ordering this promo.

    The first (very limited) print run of the Genesect movie had a promo Genesect (BW101) with it. Because it was so scarce, the promo goes for about $50 now. It's one of the hardest BW promos to hunt for, besides beaches.

    That's a true promo i honestly prefer them with a story to them to be actually rare instead of mass produced and worthless! The satisfaction of making the effort too and getting them makes them more special, like back in the wotc days i actually went to NYC from ireland especially for the pokemon store opening (parents where easily pursuaded luckily Lol) and bagged the promos for its opening - just the whole thing around it and story makes it honestly my favorite card i own.

    I got a Yoshida from Japan. Figured that wasn't happening in English.

    I personally would've loved to see a unique promo using the credits artwork. :(

    Thoroughly enjoyed the movie and am looking forward to picking it up! Shame we've got to wait until September in the UK. :(

    Why did you hate it, if you don't mind me asking?

    I liked it for the most part, though the ending was pretty forced and kinda jacked up. After all he did with Lucy and admitting he likes her, they just threw that away to have a chance to have daddy alive and back in the past. Should've just left it with the dad dead, and Pikachu giving up its body to save his soul...That way we knew what happened with the dad, and he got to have an epic Pokemon partner. With which they could've gone on to do something together after saving the town and then still have a relationship with Lucy....

    I think the main reason I didn't like it was because I felt like the writers just didn't put any thought in to the story. It almost felt like just another episode of a TV cartoon. The ending was also really bad. Also, I was disappointed at the amount of Pokémon that was in the movie. It seemed like they reused the same ones throughout the movie when they could have made different ones.

    There's a PTCGO code for the promo with the card as well. That's a first.
