Pokémon Co. is usually very careful with how their brand is used. Very rarely do we see a misstep where something showcases the franchise in anything other than a family-friendly light, but the official Pokémon Tiktok account in Japan certainly made quite the goof in one of their latest videos.

The video, which has been removed from Tiktok but can be seen archived above, shows Pikachu and Lucario doing a little dance to a piece of audio. That seems harmless in theory, but once you play the video and hear the song, you’ll instantly recognize just how big of a mistake this was.

The audio the Pokémon Co. has used on Tiktok has been popular for quite some time now, but it also happens to drop the F-bomb multiple times. Not exactly something you’d expect to see the Pokémon Co. embracing! Obviously, the team behind the Tiktok quickly learned the error of their ways and yanked the video. Of course, as most people know, the internet never forgets!

LOL How many F bombs were dropped in those 12 seconds? Far more than the number of seconds anyway.

Saw that earlier. Someone needs to watch and listen to things before they repost them on official Pokémon accounts lol.

The only way for TPC to make up for this is to give everyone free Living Dexes

Honestly, Tik tok should be banned, not just for the policies of the home country in which byte dance is based, but the detrimental impact it has on the productivity and intellect of society.
