Now Playing: Pokemon 2019 Press Conference: Detective Pikachu, Pokemon Sleep, And More - GS News Update.

The Switch game will resolve the cliffhanger from the 3DS game, The Pokemon Company said. The ending to the Switch game will be different to the movie starring Ryan Reynolds.

The new Detective Pikachu game for Switch is being developed by Creatures Inc., the Japanese studio that has worked alongside The Pokemon Company on numerous Pokemon games over the years.

It sounds like it's early days for the new Detective Pikachu game for Switch, as The Pokemon Company said developer Creatures Inc. "has plans to create" the game but it is unclear if development has begun.

In addition to the new Detective Pikachu game for Switch, a sequel to the Detective Pikachu movie is reportedly in the works. That is not a big surprise as the movie was generally well-received and it made a lot of money.
