Pikachu Finds His Way Onto Japan’s World Cup Fan Jersey

Adidas has released a bespoke fan jersey for the Japanese national soccer team featuring the ever-adorable Pikachu. Pokemon and adidas joined forces earlier this year to promote the Japanese team’s World Cup campaign, a partnership that has produced all sorts of merchandise in the months leading up to the tournament. Although the Samurai Blue won’t be marching onto the field with the iconic Pokemon on their chests, the fan jersey is sure to be a popular item with passionate Pokemon and soccer fans alike . Look for it in the stands when the World Cup kicks off in Brazil on June 12!
