In the latest episode of Pokémon Master Journeys: The Series, Pikachu literally got arrested on suspicion of theft by Officer Jenny. What.
He was a good lad, always cheerful, and had a smile for everyone. Well, the little fellow has certainly blotted his copybook now. It's also a stain on the celebrations for the series of monster hunting games, which honours its 25th anniversary in 2021. Starting with a very cool video that passed through all of the eras of Pokémon, from core titles to toys to spinoffs, The Pokémon Company announced a collaborative album would be revealed over the course of the year. Katy Perry recorded the lead single, titled Electric, and Post Malone held a concert on Pokémon Day with his songs Psycho, Circles, and Only Wanna Be with You. Also, McDonald's Happy Meals saw Pokémon toys and Trading Cards return to their boxes, and three new games were shown off, too. New Pokémon Snap, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus had fans in a frenzy by paying tribute to the community's highest rated games and evolving the formula for a brand new adventure.
Check out the trailer to Pokémon Legends: Arceus below, which sets the scene for a story that takes place long before the 1996 games.
The Pikachu the Suspect?! episode sees Officer Jenny and Detective Decker visit the Cerise Laboratories to investigate a strange occurrence. There have been a series of electricity thefts in Vermillion City and while other suspects like Yamper have been cleared thanks to their alibis, it can't be confirmed where Pikachu was at the time of the crime. Furthermore, a victim provided a description of the thief which was turned into a sketch and it matches the Mouse Pokémon almost exactly.
Decker interrogates Pikachu at the police station and tries to bribe him with food in order to confess. Pikachu just chows down on the treats and says nothing to the ire of the detective. However, there's suddenly a power outage at the station, which absolves Pikachu of blame as he is under the watchful eye of Decker. The ending? I won't spoil it for you. Fortunately, we now know that our boy was caught up in a case of mistaken identity and isn't a secret supervillain. But. That would be one heck of an episode.
