Do you know what’s better than Pikachu? Dancing Pikachu, that’s what.
In an ad for the new set for the Pokemon TCG, Sun and Moon — Burning Shadows, the Pokemon Company faces off crews of black and yellow in a dance-off that’s even more electric than that Wiz Khalifa bop. In it, a quintet of life-size Pikachu is pitted against Team Skull, the principal antagonists of Pokemon Sun and Moon, in a Step Up-like showdown.
Of course, I’m inclined to side with the Poke-fluffers, and you’re free to read that as a—#dilawan—biased statement. The sight of dancing Pikachu is pretty special, especially to this writer who has seen in the form of a viral dance video the most glorious deflation in history since the Great Depression.
Watch it and turn to 1:17 for a surprise.
If you’re even interested, the flagship cards in the set include Trainer cards like Guzma and Plumeria, and GX evolution cards like Salazzle, Golisopod, and Muk.
