It brings us no joy to share this news, but we’re duty-bound to inform you: Pikachu has fallen down.
The tragedy occurred at what looks to be an in-store appearance of some sort, at which numerous children were present. Pikachu, perhaps too hot in its business suit, took a tumble as it darted across the room.
Here’s video, but be warned: it is extremely shocking.
Fear not, though. Pikachu was helped up by a kind group of bystanders and seemed to be fine in the wake of its fall. Actually, we have no idea. It’s just as likely that the person wearing this Pikachu suit was deeply traumatized and will never wear it again.
Honestly, we wouldn’t blame them. Pikachus don’t exactly have a great track record for public appearances.
