In case you missed it, the Pokemon Company is posting official shorts about each generation of the Pokemon series until Christmas.
I'm not really on board with the whole whiny chirp that Pikachu has got going on, but it's a neat venture by the Pokemon Company. The first video is below, with future shorts due out every Friday/early Saturday our time.
I don't remember Pikachu being quite that cute and cuddly with Ash, either. Or that thin. Can we have the pudgy, sarcastic Pikachu back?
Update: There's a reason Pikachu wasn't that cute and cuddly — because the series features Red, not Ash. Apologies everyone.
