Japan braces itself for another Pikachu invasion


You may remember last year when a Pikachu parade invaded Japan’s Yokohama region. Well, they’re back again this year.

Pokémon’s signature character will return to Yokohama’s Minato Mirai district, with 1,000 costumed participants to appear parading and dancing their way to through the region.

The ‘Odoru? Pikachu Tairyō Hassei-chū!’ will take place between Saturday 8th – Tuesday 11th August, and, for those that have forgotten, there’s video highlights from last year’s event shared below!
