Everything You Need To Know About The Recent Pikachu Outbreak In Japan

Surely you've heard of the Running of the Bulls Festival in Pamplona, Spain. But have you heard of the Marching of the Pikachu in Yokohama, Japan? It's equally spectacular in it's own way.

Every year, hundreds of the bright yellow Pokémon arrive in the harbor district and hangout for an entire week! The organize parades, synchronized dancing, hula parties, hip hop dances, and cute costume parties.

The week between August 8 and 6 is just hopping with adorable Pikachu madness! Even the humans dress dress in yellow to pay tribute.

But why Yokohama, you may ask? Well, though Nintendo may be headquartered in Kyoto, Yokohama was the first town to open a Pokémon Center superstore. So I guess the Pikachu feel at home here and the superstore doesn't mind the extra advertisement.
