Villagers In Kenya Claim To Have Captured A Real-Life Pikachu.

You don’t need to have grown up in the 90’s to know that Pokémon is a pretty big deal. Just when you thought the console game, trading cards, comics, toys, and cartoon shows were not enough, we got Pokémon GO. Since the game was launched this month people of all ages have been vigorously playing the game.

This cultural phenomenon where players walk and even drive all over their cities in the hopes of catching the creatures, has even gotten local police to warn citizens to play with caution and responsibility. People have been hit by oncoming traffic, walked into private property, and even wondered in the middle of a crime being committed, all because they are trying to catch a Pokémon character.

One of the most beloved and favourite characters is Pikachu. A cute, yellow, creature that is synonymous with the Pokémon franchise.

Pikachu looks like a mix between a mouse and a bunny.

In the virtual world, Pikachu stands 1 foot 4 inches tall. It's power involves electricity. It's pointed ears and cheeks spark with electricity during battle.
