Pokemon Co. is teaming up with Japanese comedian Pikotaro, better known as the Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen singer, for a special Pikachu collaboration. Pikotaro will be singing a song called “PIKA to PIKO,” which will include both Pikotaro and Pikachu. The song is “a shared desire to create something joyful for people around the world to talk about.”
Pikotaro himself shared a few words on his goal for the song, which you can read below.
“For this song, I interpreted Pikachu’s words. No one understands Pikachu’s language, but I was able to understand them in a Pikotaro-like way, and I feel we linked our minds. For this song, Pikachu is wearing sunglasses, so I think we can call him Pikataro. It makes him even cuter…I hope children all over the world will enjoy the song…This is the ultimate collaboration pi.”
We'll all be able to hear/see PIKA to PIKO at the Pokemon Virtua Fest on August 31st, 2020.
