The Pokémon: Detective Pikachu movie opens in U.S. theaters this Friday, so having a Pokémon GO event to go along with it is a total no-brainer. That event officially kicks off today, bringing with it a bunch of movie-related features and bonuses that should entice both regular players and those looking for a quick GO fix.

Some of the event’s features include increased encounters with Pokémon from the movie, the chance to be photobombed by a detective hat-wearing Pikachu, new avatar items, and special Raid Battles and Field Research. The event runs until May 17, so check out the preview below and dig in while it lasts.
