The story of Pokémon began in 1996 with the release of the first video game featuring the little monsters. The players of the first game are now all grown up and Pokémon has long since achieved cult status. In addition to a range of video games, there are also all sorts of fan paraphernalia, collectible cards and animes (animations) for cinema and TV. The first live action Pokémon film is also set to hit the big screens in early May: the trailer for Detective Pikachu promises suspense, action and comedy. In addition to Pikachu, the film will feature a whole host of other popular Pokémons. Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander and, of course, Pikachu will all be available as PEZ dispensers.
