Pikachu and 10 other Pokémon to be the official mascots for Japan in 2014 World Cup

Post by Evolution Master on Wed Mar 19, 2014 3:30 pm



Adidas, the official apparel sponsor of Japanese national football team, had announced that it had formed an agreement with Nintendo to feature Pikachu and 10 other Pokémon as the official mascot of the team. The other 10 Pokemon are Meowth, the three Kanto starters (Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle), the three Kalos starters (Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie), Pancham, Helioptile, and Litleo.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup will be held in Brazil from June 12 to July 13, 2014. Nicknamed the Blue Samurai, the Japanese national football team made its first appearance in the FIFA World Cup in 1998.

Dang, wish every country was represented by a Pokémon! Razz
