Tim Goodman is a young man who has recently joined the same police precinct that his father, Harry Goodman, belongs to.  Harry is a legendary detective who has gone missing and left no clues as to his current whereabouts. Detective Yoshida is a good friend of Harry’s and is excited to have Tim as a member of the team. However, Tim is quick to let Detective Yoshida know that he is nothing like his father.

Detective Pikachu - Jiggly PuffTim, grew up dreaming about becoming a legendary Pokemon trainer who would go on to compete at the Sinnoh Championships.
