Adorable Pikachu Show in Yokohama Is Adorable

You don’t need a smartphone to catch these Pikachus.

Pikachu Outbreak is a yearly event in Yokohama, just south of Tokyo, where hundreds of Pikachus march and dance their way through the city.

This year the Japan Times aimed its cameras at a stage show featuring several Pikachus called Splash Kingdom which, as the title implies, involved some watery action, not to mention some adorable Pikachu dancing.

Good thing electric-types are strong against water.

This is the first Pikachu Outbreak since the release of Pokemon Go, and as such, several Go-related events are scheduled to take place throughout the event, which runs until August 14.
