When Detective Pikachu’s physical edition was announced for Japan, a Pokemon Center pre-order was revealed. People who went through that retailer received a short story called Detective Pikachu Chapter 0: Eevee’s Request and a bookmark. Now, until May 15, 2018, people can get the 25-page adventure from Amazon, Rakuten Kobo and iTunes for free.
Detective Pikachu Chapter 0: Eevee’s Request follows Detective Pikachu’s first case. Tim Goodman has not yet arrived in Ryme City. Detective Pikachu is helping an Eevee from a wealthy family figure out who tore up the yard of its owner. It is a brief, illustrated adventure that helps you get a feel for the character and game.
Detective Pikachu is now available for the Nintendo 3DS.
