NOTE: this w ...…

A story, nay, a tale so big we had to have help to handle it, Pokémon: Detective Pikachu: Story of the Movie is a novelization slash transcript of the recent film, which Kotaku's Gita Jackson (@xoxogossipgita on Twitter) was kind enough to join us to discuss!

Just in time for J.W.'s birthday, we crack the spine on Tamra Baumann's Plotting for Murder.
