The World Cup starts this week over in Brazil, and The United States has a berth in it apparently, go US. That’s not the point of this post. The point of this post is to showcase Japan. Their official team mascot for the World Cup is Pikachu. You know, the electric Pokemon. I like it, strangely.
It does however bring up some interesting questions pertaining to Tokyo’s hosting of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. Like, will they build their own Pokemon team of mascots? Personally, being a true fan back to the olden days, I would perfer they stuck with the original starters. Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. But that’s me.
