TV Tokyo to Air Hour-Long Pikachu Special on Thursday
TV Tokyo has recently confirmed that Pikachu’s 1 hour TV special will be airing this coming Thursday at 7 PM. Titled Pokemon XY: Pikachu the Movie 1-Hour Special, the animated project will consist of five acts that follow a “big outbreak” of Pikachus.
The official synopsis from The Pokemon Company:
“A big outbreak of Pikachu?! A movie of Pikachu by Pikachu for Pikachu is finally complete! The evil organization Black Pikachu Corps approaches Pikachu Land! Will Super Pikachu really be able to protect the peace of the area?!”
Regardless of the tone used by the synopsis, we don’t really think an outbreak of cute and cuddly Pikachus is that scary, regardless of the color of their skin.
