Joe, Ghostbusters), is an adaptation of the film and follows the same plotline.

“Brian’s writing and Nelson’s art have really captured a depth to the world in which Detective Pikachu and his fellow Pokémon live. We are so excited to expand upon this story, as well as the characters of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.” - Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics
