Pokémon Masters Players Can Now Hatch Eggs to Team Up with Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle

DeNA Co., Ltd., in partnership with The Pokémon Company, has announced that Pokémon Masters players now have the ability to obtain Eggs that hatch into one of the three partner Pokémon from the Kanto region: Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle. Players can then pair their partner Pokémon with the game’s Main Character and battle alongside one another. Pokémon Masters, a real-time battling and strategy game, can be downloaded on compatible iOS and Android devices.

All players  will be able to obtain an Egg from Profesor Bellis when they log into the game. Players will be able to choose if they want their Egg to hatch into Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle. Eggs hatch after players complete a certain number of battles, and they will also be able to choose their own names for these Pokémon. In addition, more Pokémon hatchable from Eggs will be made available in future updates—all of which can be paired with the game’s Main Character to form a sync pair.

Legendary Comics’ Pokémon Detective Pikachu is Out Now

The highly anticipated Pokémon Detective Pikachu graphic novel adaptation from Legendary Comics, in collaboration with The Pokémon Company International, is now available for purchase online. Last summer’s popular big-screen adventure starred Ryan Reynolds as the adorable super-sleuth Detective Pikachu and was the first-ever live action Pokémon movie. Fans are now invited to relive the adventures of Tim Goodman and his crime-solving Detective Pikachu partner in comic form.

The graphic novel is written by Brian Buccellato with art by Nelson Dániel and draws inspiration from the film that is based on the beloved Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and one of the most successful media franchises of all time. Readers are invited to follow along as lead character Tim Goodman, played in the movie by Justice Smith, journeys through Ryme City searching for his missing father. With twists and turns around every corner, nothing is more twist-y than Tim’s unexpected partner: a Pikachu with a penchant for coffee and danger, and the amazing ability to speak human language. In a city where humans and Pokémon live together in harmony, unexpected dangers surround them as they try to solve a mystery.
