It looks like Japan’s Okinawa island will be getting a fun Pikachu makeover, with a stylish way to travel there!
The Pokemon Company, in collaboration with various companies, has announced a new “Flying Pikachu Project” in Okinawa – which will introduce new products, events, and promotions to the island.
The first of these will be the new Pikachu Jet BC, a new aircraft with a Pikachu-themed design developed by Japanese low-cost airline Skymark. This special plane will feature Flying Pikachu designs all over its exterior, and passengers will even get to check in with Pikachu-themed machines and enjoy KitKat with Pikachu packaging:
On 17 July 2021, an exclusive Pikachu plush wearing Kariyushi wear (an aloha shirt with Okinawa-born designs) will also go on sale exclusively at various Pokemon stores and pop-up shops at AEON MALL Okinawa, Naha Airport, and Department Store Ryubo. Additionally, Pokemon GO players will be able to encounter Kariyushi Pikachu exclusively while in Okinawa from 22 July 2021.
