Pokemon GO Detective Pikachu Raid Bosses Revealed

Pokemon GO Detective Pikachu Raid Bosses Revealed

With the upcoming release of Ryan Reynolds’ wisecracking Detective Pikachu movie, Pokemon GO has recently debuted a fitting event centered around the hard-boiled Poke-sleuth. Alongside the possibility of catching a detective-hatted variety of the rosy-cheeked Pokemon, players of the popular AR game will also encounter varied Pocket Monsters from the upcoming film while the Pokemon GO Detective Pikachu event is live.

According to Pokemon GO Hub, the landscape has been peppered with numerous Poke-creatures in the wild as well as in Raids. The latter sees the addition of several Pokemon prominently featured in film adverts such as Lickitung, Flareon, and of course, Charizard, each in a varying-tiered capacity. In a very twisty twist, it should be noted that the likes of Mewtwo are seemingly not included this event, despite also featuring pretty strongly in the movie’s marketing.
