DETECTIVE PIKACHU: Eevee's Case by Pokémon Company

Detective Pikachu: Episode 0—Eevee's Case
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hubby grabbed the Kindle version of this book from the Nintendo Life website. Since it's a short story, I thought I'd check it out right away.

Pikachu is a great detective. He lives in Ryme City, which is a place full of Pokémon, humans and good food. For some reason, he understands what people are saying but they can't understand him.

A few months before his human partner, Harry, went missing and so did Pikachu's memory. So now he's staying with a friend of Harry's, while trying to find him. But in the meantime, he decides to start his own agency. And when Eevee asks him to help figure out who ruined its partner's yard, Pika takes on the case...

This is so adorable. The story's quite simple, the writing is easygoing and easy to get into. It was nice to see how Pokémon and humans live together. The illustrations are gorgeous, and I got a kick out of how nicely different types of Pokémon were thrown into the mix to create a cute mystery! And that Pikachu loves a good cup of coffee is hilarious.

It's obviously aimed at kids, and I think they'll get a kick out of how this short tale complements their DS game. But anyone can enjoy this because it's a super fast and fun read.

Pikachu is a great handyman. :P
