Pikachu says the room we're in is familiar and he's really close to remembering something. We find a plan to export R laying on the table. We learn that it can only be produced using the machine under PCL and that they have purchased a location for a new manufacturing facility. Next, they must find a wealthy patron who is comfortable keeping secrets. The warehouse at Ryme Wharf is to be a temporary base of operations, but the goal is to move production overseas. We also find a Production Report authored by Carlos. It says R has different properties depending on if it's in liquid or gas form, allowing it to be used in different ways depending on the situation. Both forms are nearly odorless, so only Pokémon with an acute sense of smell can detect it. Hm, don't we know such a Pokémon? I can't remember which one, though...oh, right! Brad's Manectric, wasn't it? The incident at the park was a good example of its properties as a gas. Popping the balloon dispersed it approximately three feet, sufficient for most needs. The best way to utilize it in liquid form is to inject it into food. The effects are amplified when the two types of liquid, red and green, are mixed together. In fact, the best way to gain the effects of R is to inject the liquids separately into food; any Pokémon that consumes the food will have its effects amplified. They've begun working on a capsule form that will be less fragile and better at mixing the liquids than the vials they currently use, increasing durability and portability. Furthermore, the capsule device will allow the user to mix the liquids whenever they choose. More research is needed to counter its drawbacks: its effects are temporary, and it's impossible to communicate with a Pokémon under the influence of R. Carlos planned to continue research on R in order to develop a new version that will allow the power-enhancing effects to last an extended period of time, while also allowing the Pokémon's partner to communicate with it.

A box catches Piikachu's interest. He seems to remember it. There's a jar inside, and despite Tim's exhortations to be careful, Pikachu opens it. He seems to be out of it, and he says that he guesses that wasn't a dream after all. It seems he made quite the commitment. To...Mewtwo? Oh, he promised to recover the Berserk Gene and capture the mastermind of the R case. In his dream, he was pleading with Mewtwo to save Harry. He guesses it offered to help him if he helped it first. Tim asks why Mewtwo would rely on Pikachu for something so important, and he gets incensed, saying he has a reputation as a great detective. We make to leave, but Wilde is there and sees us. We escape via a few quick-time events. Simon proposes shipping us to the headquarters in a container. Tim gives the notes on their plans to Accelgor to take back to Baker. And...end chapter already? Another short one, I guess because we changed locations so quickly? Chapter 8 is called "Where R Goes". We're in another storage space. We head upstairs and meet with two Rattata--one Alolan, one Kantonian. The Alolan Rattata says it wasn't paying attention and ended up here, but it made a friend so it's okay. Kantonian Rattata likes this place because there's a lot of food and it made a new friend, and gives us directions to where the men went. We head up the elevator and...are we on a cruise ship? We are! We're on a luxury cruise ship! A Lapras and some Brionne are lounging in the pool, and a Frillish is serving as a waiter. Frillish says the ship is so big that it gets lost frequently, and they don't serve any hot drinks because they'd cool off by the time it got them to their destination. The ship is called the "Prime Treasure". One person saw them heading to the lounge, though most people haven't seen a thing. Another Frillish on the upper deck is on a "very important mission", but won't say what it is. There are also NPCs we can't interact with here. I finally find the door to go inside and the lounge should be straight ahead.

There's nothing to interact with in the hallway, so I head back to the lounge. The man at the cafe reveals that the Frillish not carrying trays will take your luggage. We get confirmation from a pair of Krokorok bouncers that the men we're looking for are in the room they're guarding, but they won't let us in. As we head back downstairs, we run into Emilia, who's here to cover the festival and to interview the famous chef Gino Farina. We learn that the room we can't get into houses the Prime Treasure Show, and the man at the cafe says he's heard plenty of customers complaining about not being able to get tickets, but none talking about having actually gone to it. Very suspicious, and none of the tourists in the lounge have been able to get tickets. We also receive a drink order form for the Frillish. After confirming no one on the deck has seen the show either, we order drinks from the Frillish. On the way back to the lounge, we go into cutscene mode, and hear a scream. We meet the elderly Rose Milton, who was spooked by a strange thing in her bag. That's a Cofagrigus mask. Her partner, Snubbull, was also frightened. It must have gotten into her bag between when she handed it off to the staff this morning for boarding and when she got it back. Oh, it was a different bag, likely a mix-up. Ms. Milton is friends with the captain and wishes to let him know. We leave her room, and it cuts to Emilia's interview with Gino Farina. Walter Eckhart is the captain, and he's there during the interview. Emilia recognizes the mask from the news; it's apparently stolen. Mr. Graham is letting Emilia help with the investigation in exchange for an interview with Tim when it's all over. Pikachu speculates that maybe Keith isn't the only bad guy here, and the thief brought it here to try to sell it. Hm, so maybe the show is actually a black market. Pikachu seems to dislike Graham's single-minded focus on ratings. We take an elevator to the bridge. The captain doesn't know much about the show, either, because the shows are planned by the committee. This ship's a bit unusual, you see; the passengers are the owners. All rooms are privately owned, and everything from the shows to the next destination are decided by a committee run by the passengers. ...Well that's convenient. Obviously the "committee" are our enemies; Keith's organization. The ship is their base of operations, and because it's mobile--and a ship, no less--it's able to avoid law enforcement agencies. The captain also said that the suitcase's owner seems to have had an interest in the show, too. That supports my theory. The note says "The Prime Treasure Show; Iced Tea; the usual Frillish; Umbrellas and yellow deck chairs." There's also a ticket. Nosepass, who serves as the captain's partner and compass, seems to have taken a shine to the mask. Pikachu suggests talking to the Frillish to investigate. I'll bet it's the luggage Frillish that we should be talking to. We meet another luggage Frillish in the hall and he mentions the one on the second floor of the deck that's "always slacking off", saying it's unfair that he gets to take it easy. Hmm, seems I was on the right trail. That particular Frillish is probably "connected". I talk to him, and he doesn't claim to know anything when asked about "the usual Frillish", but says he doesn't have much time to talk to the other Frillish, and when Pikachu presses the issue, says that he has to be ready to spring into action at a moment's notice. The waiter Frillish back on the first floor said he had a strange customer persistently trying to order something not on the menu--specifically, a book. He was lying around as if he owned the place, and he was blue. Also, the Frillish on the second floor did some work today for once. We talk to the man in blue, and he said he was just a first-timer trying to blend in with the regulars; he saw someone receive a book from a Frillish and thought that you could order books from them too.

The man can't tell the Frillish apart, but told us that the woman with the Cinccinos is the one who received the book. She plays dumb, but her partners tell us that she did receive a book from the Frillish with the sharp features--the second floor Frillish. And their partner had been up on the second floor, looking down and counting something on the first floor. We confront it and it says it'll bring us a book if we "order properly". We have to figure out what it is. I count 6 umbrellas and...7 chairs? 7 yellow-striped deck chairs, but six yellow chairs of the smaller kind. We look down from where the woman was and confirm, 6 umbrellas, 7 deck chairs. We give it the order and receive the Prime Treasure Auction Catalog. I was right! Please have your ticket with you; dress code is semi-formal. The items for auction: Detective's Cape, Henry Brothers' Recipe Book, Mask of Antiquity...and exclusive buying rights to R for six months is on there, too. Hmm...Henry Brothers' Recipe Book? Wasn't Gino talking about finding their lost recipe? Going back towards the bridge, though, we cut right there and the mask's been stolen. It disappeared in the blink of an eye, Nosepass said. We learn that two crew members had been in the room. Nosepass says the ship changed direction so that Nosepass, who always faces north, couldn't see it any more, and then it was gone when it changed back. So the one in charge of steering was probably involved. Nosepass also says it was splashed by cold water when it couldn't see the mask. The one who delivered the report also noted that it was wet up there. He also says that Gino wanted to know the exact time he'd next be visiting the bridge. The one who does the steering, however, said nothing strange aside from the Pokémon next to him spilling its drink. Pikachu now suspects Gino based on the reporting crewman's testimony. Graham says Gino will be on the second floor of the deck. Ah, Snubbull was the one who spilled its drink! And it's shaking again...I suspect the mask was able to "disappear" like that because it did, in fact, belong to a Cofagrigus. Snubbull says that it wasn't its fault the drink was spilled; it saw something invisible drink the juice. Definitely a Ghost-type. Snubbull growled at it and startled it, making it drop the juice. Whatever it was briefly appeared and claimed ownership of the juice. The word "wet" keeps appearing, though, which makes me suspect a Water-type. Could it be the Frillish? They're Water/Ghost. Of course, it could have just disappeared with Acid Armor. Gino claims one of the Pokémon played a prank, splashing him with water, and he came to the second floor to dry off. He claims ignorance as to the existence of the Henry Brothers' Recipe Book. Brionne confirms that Gino was splashed by one of its balloons. It claims the balloon had been empty, but suddenly a Pokémon was inside, and Gino got splashed when that Pokémon fell into the pool. Back to suspecting a Cofagrigus. Pikachu seems to have an idea of who did this. Ah, because the invisible Pokémon came in with a crew member while it was still wet from falling into the pool. Pikachu thinks the disappearing drink is related, and that anything the invisible Pokémon puts in its mouth becomes invisible too. Okay, so maybe I'm off. We're going to consult Emilia's hand-drawn Pokédex to identify the culprit. Just as I suspect when Pikachu keeps keying on the word "invisible", it's a Kecleon we're looking for. And it'll reveal itself when it gets surprised, just like what happened with Snubbull. Summation time. Gino denies knowing Kecleon. He's confronted with the knowledge of the secret auction and the Henry Brothers' Recipe Book. But now for the auction. Emilia says she could do it, as she brought a dress for conducting the interviews, but Tim doesn't want her to go alone. Ms. Rose offers the use of her husband's jacket, and even has a bow tie for Pikachu. The bouncers let them in, and he's told to "put these on once you're inside". Masks! Of course there are masks.

We ask around, and the ticket apparently has how much money he has to spend. 90 million; Gino was pretty loaded, or expected to be after selling the mask. There's a man disappointed that the mask has been pulled from the auction, and a Chandelure is swarming around a display case with a necklace, admiring its reflection in the jewels. Another customer mentions that she's disappointed about another pulled item--Carina Mitchell's violin! Oh dear, so that's why it went missing... There are two men admiring the Detective's Cape, and then there's the ones looking at the Henry Brothers' Recipe Book. Talking to Emilia again lets us distract Chandelure, and we get to see the Goddess's Necklace. Another customer interested in it gives us tips on winning bids. There are only three opportunities to raise your bid, and you have set amounts that you can raise it by: 3 million, 5 million, and 10 million. We investigate our rivals for other pieces, and get that the woman obsessed with the recipe book can bid up to 40 million, and that she's cautious, raising her bid by 3 million first, then 5, then 10. For the cape, the man is aggressive, always going for broke and raising by 10 million at a time. He's got up to 50 million. Do we need to properly use all of our money to grab both items? ...Wait, I shouldn't have gone all the way to 50 million proper for the cape; I could've gotten it at 48 million. Wait, I can salvage this. Just go aggressive twice, and her cautious bid of 3 million will make it 38 million after my second bid. And there's Keith, with the capsules with red and green liquids. Battle time. Keith uses the R on the Krokorok to try to stall us. Pikachu slides down the banister to knock Skorupi away, and Tim tries to grab Keith as he's getting away. We knock him off of his Noivern, and Chandelure catches us. Heh, it wasn't until I saw how that Chandelure reacted when Emilia gave it her earrings that I realized that even though it's basically a given in this continuity that all humans have a Pokémon partner, Emilia hadn't been introduced with one. Keith says he won't be giving them any information, but that he can't imagine Harry's alive after going off that cliff, and he seems to suggest that even though he's been captured, the parade's still in danger. Emilia says she regrets covering the accident at Fine Park, because that led to the park being shut down and the Pokémon being separated. Just because something is true doesn't mean it should be broadcast. Pikachu's nowhere to be found, and the fireworks start. Emilia says they're beautiful, and Tim says yeah, so beautiful, but he seems to be looking at her, not the fireworks. Cut to Mewtwo and Pikachu talking. Mewtwo confirms that Pikachu remembers his promise, and Pikachu says he's fulfilled his end of the bargain. Mewtwo says that's not true yet. Some of its cells are still out there somewhere. Pikachu asks how Mewtwo knows that, and Mewtwo can't say, only that it feels them. It says it can't allow them to remain in this world, and it must destroy them with its own hands. Humans can't be trusted. Pikachu says it's the tedious type, and Mewtwo says it could just destroy everything. Pikachu stops it, and Mewtwo says "you stopped me back then, too. The real you, that is. You were the one who told me that the human world can be tedious, which is why I trusted you to take care of things for me. But now it seems there are some humans that can be dependable." Pikachu tells Tim what Mewtwo said, and we investigate Keith's room. He had information on GNN's shoot of the festival, and a memo marked "leading up to the finale". A mysterious patron wanted Keith to cause the biggest incident yet, and consider the most effective location and time and plan carefully. The dispersal locations will be a location with the most Pokémon present and a location that is part of a GNN shoot. There will be three kinds of R to disperse--the two they have tested, Liquid R and Gaseous R, and the new development, Capsule R.

Emilia says they didn't decide on their locations until after Keith left GNN, but the memo said "all information will be provided." We determine that the mastermind works at GNN as well. Hmm...I think I have an idea, and Pikachu was planting the seeds in this chapter. Mr. Graham sees this all as one big publicity opportunity! Chapter 9 is at the carnival. The parade's already started. Half the Unova Dex seems to be there. Oh, there are multiple parades, and true fans plan how to view the most parades possible. We have to figure it out. Ah, there's only one location where all three parades meet! They'll all converge in the central square at 8 PM. The parade's finale! And it's already past seven. We get to investigate. One woman seems to be "marked" by the game, and speaking to her reveals that there's a wagon full of treats for the Pokémon in the parade. That's where the liquid R will be dispersed! Ah, but another one that seems "marked" has absolutely nothing useful. There's a cart with balloons that seems like it could be used for dispersing the gaseous R, but the balloon woman tells us nothing that becomes testimony. A trio of Volbeat is swarmed around one of the balloon decorations, and as we continue down the stairs, Brad and his Manectric are here. As I suspected, they'll be useful in sniffing out R. Illumise is supposed to be the conductor of the parade, but no one except the Volbeat ever show up on time. We get a generic "people gather in the square" testimony--that's probably for the capsule--and run into Meiko, but can't tell her about R. One of the food vendors says the man in the stall next to hers "wasn't very friendly, but worked quickly". Probably the suspicious one, since the Wharf had food, too. The man had a yellow hat and kept looking over his shoulder. Yeah, another man says that the yellow hat man tried to intimidate him when his daughter was taken with one of the balloons. Yes, he was putting balloons up four at a time, the young girl said. Volbeat's flight path will be the parade route. We talk to Emilia, and get a changed prompt for telling Pikachu when we see something suspicious. As for the capsule R, we should think about that last. The Volbeat have moved to a different set of balloons, and the ones they were previously swarming around are in a group of four and contain a pink one like the girl mentioned. Mr. Clifford hears us mention R. "Run away if you're in trouble" gets added as testimony...was my hunch wrong? Ah, but as we're about to report back to Emilia, Mr. Graham is there. He makes a joke about how if Tim's there, there's sure to be a scoop. We head to the stall that was pointed out as suspicious, and there's R there. And then we're told that someone had been connected to both, and it's the man in the yellow hat. We split up with Brad to corner him and get the Capsule R. But then Holiday arrives and says that Keith did the evil gloating thing and there's still a fourth batch of R. All communication came from the mastermind's end; Keith didn't know how to contact the mastermind. Communication was through letters and calls. As for Keith's motives, it was all about how well the mastermind paid, nothing more. Where would the R be hidden...maybe the clock tower! A bunch of quick time events follow, including one with an actual timer. But now to figure out who the mastermind is. Pikachu says there was only one incident where Keith directly tried to cause Tim harm. Which one was it? Oh, right, the one at the station. And the clue is...the information received from the mastermind. Oh...Roger shouldn't have known about Pikachu's inability to use moves, but Keith would! That's the proof of connection! Roger confirms it.They destroyed the circuitry, but it can be activated manually. We ask him why smuggle R at all, and he gives a generic "take over the world" answer. To start, he needed GNN to be the most influential network in the world.

We then ask why target the carnival, and he says it's a great opportunity to gather information on R because of how many Pokémon would be in one place, and if GNN gets the scoop on it, that's all the better. He can control all the information in Ryme City. But such a plan needed money. Still, he has the cells already...but that's long enough for Pikachu to get to him. Still, he recovers, and it's his Noivern. Its eyes are red, like R's been used, but it's too calm! They must have fixed the second issue! Noivern still recognizes its partner. It tries to break the tank, and Tim gets in the way. Pikachu jumps in and finally regains its ability to use electric-type moves. It's 8 PM. Case closed. We have the cells. Meiko admits that she would've sooner expected Graham, too, and he says he can hear her. Pikachu says he's held up his end of the bargain and returns the cells, and Mewtwo says there's not much time and asks if he's decided which one to choose. Pikachu's only asleep, but before that happens, he confirms that Mewtwo knows Harry. Mewtwo says Harry is still alive and Tim will find him provided he does not give up, but leaves before giving Tim any further answers. Back in the office, Tim can no longer understand Pikachu...oh, no, wait, Pikachu was just pranking Tim. Pikachu asks what's next, and Tim says looking for his father, hopefully with the Great Detective Pikachu as his partner. They walk off into the white, and it seems Pikachu doesn't remember using Thunderbolt to save the day. The credits roll. Huh, even with the major case solved, that ending felt kind of...not like an ending. Now I'm curious as to whether Tim finds his father in the movie; leaving that hanging seems even less like something a movie would do than a video game. So, yeah. That was Detective Pikachu. That was really a strange ending, though; the last scene with Mewtwo created so many questions and answered none. Decided which one to choose...

Aha! It has in fact been confirmed that there's a sequel to this game in the works, which will be for the Switch. Guess I'll have to keep this alive long enough to get to that. Heh, so this is actually going to be a series...cool, we'll have another series to work with. Probably going to be a bit of a break before AA6, though; there's some stuff going on right now so I'll probably just work on finishing the games I already have before making any fresh purchases.
