This past Saturday, an adorable herd of 20 enormous Pikachus took to New York City, meandering throughout Manhattan as part of a celebration of Pokémon’s 20th anniversary. They first popped up near the Brooklyn Bridge, and then they wandered through Manhattan before finally ending their cute parade at Penn Station. Plenty of folks were able to grab some great pics and videos, and it’s pretty fun to watch these guys navigate their way through one of the busiest cities in the world.

The Pikachus had a handler, and their job was to keep the costumed Pokemon moving in unison. The handlers used whistles, which you’ll hear in the videos below, to let the Pokemon know when to move forward.

pikachu hand tongue

Yes, Pikachu has a human hand for a tongue. Whatever. The most surprising thing about this picture is his complete disregard for hygiene. I mean, I don’t see any pockets for hand tongue sanitizer.

If Pikachu and Umbreon were some sort of futuristic samurai, I believe this is what their battle gear would look like. It looks serious and deadly and I don’t want to even think about their final forms. Cosplayer SpiritRising7 designed both impressive warrior suits, noting that for Pikachu:

“Costume has light-up eyes and lights on sword (electric plasma light) and shield. Due to bright outdoor photo, weapon lights were turned off to conserve battery life and glow effects added in PS (shoutouts to RokuRex).”

You probably had no idea Pokemon could be so sexy and classy, right? I’m about to blow your mind with this super cute pin-up style Pikachu dress from Etsy shop owner KooKeeBoutique. She totally nails this character re-imagined as a retro cocktail dress making Pikachu’s rosy cheeks into sleek hip frames and his ears into straps. The yellow and red fitted frock is meant to hug the hourglass curves, but each dress is made to your own measurements.

These sexy pin-up dresses come in a ton of nerdy flavors including Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America. Check out more examples after the break.
