Hey there my little monsters, today Pokémon Go launched a special event.
Rather than report to you that the “One Piece” Pikachu is catchable in go, I put on my own straw hat and went on a cruise through town to catch one. I interviewed it and now here WE ARE.
Pinkie: ‘Well hi there little one, could you introduce yourself to us?’
SH-Pikachu: ‘I am Straw Hat Pikachu, me and my Nakama ,that is like our word for friends and teammates, boarded Pokémon Go today. ‘
Pinkie: ‘Mind if I call you SH..it’s a bit faster? So SH what makes you so special’
SH-Pikachu: ‘Well I am a Pikachu with a special hat on..so that already makes me kind of special right?’
Pinkie: ‘Not really, your kind kinda cosplays a lot, you guys have more hats than I have shoes, and that’s saying something.’
SH-Pikachu: ‘Uhm well , instead of being your Pokémon I will be your Nakama, and with my launch you can wear a matching cap, that’s in the Go style shop’
Pinkie: ‘Well I am a sucker for matching outfits, so you got me there, but tell me , would it not have been cuter if Niantic chose to use Aipom for this event?
SH-Pikachu: I’m Pikachu I get all the hats, also why would they give it to Aipom, I am the mascot here.
Pinkie: ‘Of course you are but I mean MONKEY D Luffy!? Kinda would have made sense.. it also has a somewhat stretchy tail hand thingies..so It would have made a lot of sense and diversified the game a bit. I have a LOT of versions of you.
SH-Pikachu: ‘Wait i am based on that stretchy pirate bloke? I thought this hat was just to protect me from the hot summer sun.
Pinkie: ‘No No, that’s Sun-Hat Pikachu that’s also a thing’
SH-Pikachu: ‘Well Arrrr then, time to plunder your booty’
Pinkie: ‘Thief is not in your moveset, so there will be no plunderin from you. Anyways, how long can we find you?’
SH-Pikachu: ‘Me and me mates will be here until 1PM on the 29th , then we shall hoist the anchor, keelhaul those who have not caught one and sail further down the Grand Line again.
Pinkie: ‘That means my dear reader that you have seven days to catch yourself a stretchy pirate Pikachu, speaking of which will there be anything else special about this event.
SH-Pikachu: ‘Nay Lass, except for the hat, and the hatted chu’s that may be as shiny and valuable as One Piece itself, there is nothing to shiver your timbers.
Pinkie: ‘You realise Luffy doesn’t talk like that right..also.. maybe you should tell the people about the stuf in Japan.’
SH-Pikachu: ‘Awww… but I am already kind of boring if I dont talk like a pirate what else do I have?! Well should any of your three or so readers be in Japan, in the Kumamoto Prefecture , the statues of Luffy there, now will function as a Pokéstop. Doesnt that sound exciting.
Pinkie: ‘It does not’
SH-Pikachu: ‘Yeah you are right it really doesn’t’
Pinkie: ‘Anyway, I never asked, howcome you can talk? Did you eat the human human fruit or the Hito Hito no Mi, as the Japanese call it?
SH-Pikachu: ‘No, you are just talking to imaginary creatures again!’
Pinkie: ‘Frizzlesticks, I thought I got rid of my insanity’
SH-Pikachu: It’s okay, I can offer electroshock therapy
Did you manage to catch your own little Straw Hat? Did you like this cross over event?
Let me know in the comments and make my day by leaving a like, but most of all stay pink!
