Meet These Unique Characters!


This gruff, tough-talking Pikachu loves coffee and calls himself a great detective. For some reason, Tim is the only one who can understand what Pikachu is saying. Pikachu used to be the partner of Tim’s father, Harry. Now he mentors Tim in their work as detectives. With the knowledge and experience at Pikachu’s disposal, it’s no wonder he calls himself a great detective, but at times he can get a little full of himself.

Tim Goodman

Tim is a student at Ryme University. He met Pikachu and partnered up with him while he was searching for his missing father, Harry. While Tim is usually mild-mannered and reserved, he has a sharp eye for investigations that even Pikachu holds in high regard. He’s also an expert at taking Pikachu’s antics in stride.


Growlithe is able to track scents using her sharp sense of smell. You can ride around Ryme City on her back to find evidence for your cases. ✓)
