Maybe this explains Pikachu's drastic changes over the years?

Apgujeong Seoul Plastic Surgery calls this a "collaboration" with Pikachu, but no confirmation as to whether or not this, you know, is an official one... Kotaku reached out to Nintendo for comment, but hasn't heard back.

    Scarier than Pennywise. There is no way NIntendo would allow a cosmetic surgery company to use Pikachu, this campaign must be aimed at under 18's and should be illegal.

      Cosmetic surgery is HUGE in South Korea. The thinking is - you should give yourself every chance at success and your looks play into that.

      Forgive the source but this is fairly interesting
