Pikachu to be at the 2014 FIFA World Cup?!
What does Pikachu have to do with soccer? Well, apparently the electric Pokemon has been chosen to represent Japan’s national soccer team in the 2014 World Cup. However, the famous mouse won’t be alone: a total of 10 Pokemon friends will be accompanying him, including Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle.
Though Pikachu might have more experience with Poke Balls than soccer balls, he will no doubt be a hit with the Cup’s younger fans. The decision to have Pokemon mascots came after an agreement between Adidas and Nintendo.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup will take place in Brazil from June 12th to July 13th.
