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.
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.
