Villagers In Kenya Claim To Have Captured A Real-Life Pikachu.
Humans can train Pokémon once caught and use them to battle other Pokémons.
The point of the game is to catch the strongest and rarest creature. Originally there were 151 types of Pokémon. Today there are over 700 species. This electric animal looks exactly like Pikachu with the pointy ears and red, circle cheeks. Even the lightning style tail looks identical.
Once capture, Pikachu was put in a cage. They described the creature as having the ears of a rabbit, body of a chinchilla, and sporting the iconic yellow fur.
One of the zoologist, Micahel Mamalyha was disappointed that this Pikachu was not as cute as the one on the TV show. This specie did not release the strong electrical currents in real-life as the trading card suggests.
One of the villagers who caught this real-life Pikachu said they didn't have the standard Pokémon ball to help them capture the creature.
Montassar Hssine describes the capture difficult because the creature used its electric powers. "It was sending out jolts of electricity. You can not see the electricity, we know because there were a few of us that touched it and got shocked. It wasn’t a deadly shock, it was more of just a small jolt that made you pull your hand away from it," says Hssine.
If this story sounds too good to be true, it's because it is.
It may not be April to fool you, but it's an adorable story to make you smile.
