Today's Pokémon Anime Special Was Kind of Nuts

In Japan today, an hour Pokémon special aired on TV. It starred Pikachu. Lots of Pikachus. But mostly, even by Pokémon standards, it was bonkers.

The special was called Pokémon XY: Pikachu the Movie, and was divided into several parts (more here), but set against the making of a Pikachu movie. How meta. But actually, it was super interesting. I dug it.

The #anipoke Twitter tag for the anime series has been trending in Japan, and below, you can see some of the images people have been uploading (note that these might be spoilers if you plan on watching the special):

So, that's 17 Pikachus, each weighing 6kg... Not unusual for this anime! This special, though, certainly was.
