Is Pikachu based off a rabbit or a mouse?
Pikachu had long felt like a distant relative to those two, but, during an interview, game designer Atsuko Nishida, who worked on the original Pokemon Gameboy games, noted that the iconic character isn’t based on a mouse at all. Pikachu is a squirrel. “At that time, I was really into squirrels,” said Nishida.
Where is the real Pikachu?
“Pikachu is real and it can be found in Thailand,” claim people raving on the internet about a cat that resembles one of the most famous pocket monsters out there.
