Of course, Pikachu may have lost the title of being "the best Pokemon all things considered" to Greninja, but that doesn't stop Pikachu from throwing its annual Pikachu Outbreak, occurred from the 7th to the 14th of August at Yokohama Minato Mirai, and because it's Pokemon's 20th anniversary after all, it was the biggest Pikachu outbreak ever occurred since two years ago. There are fun, games, music, special guests, and most of all, a swarm of Pikachus swarming through the streets!
Let's take a look at the best bits from this year's Pikachu outbreak, courtesy of the official Pokemon Pikachu instagram...

Thanks to them, the biggest Pikachu Outbreak event in celebration of Pokemon's 20th anniversary was a huge success and if by huge, it was electrifying like Pikachu's Thunderbolt! Let's see them again sometime and in the meantime, let's all do the Pikachu anthem while going home with happy faces after the Pikachu outbreak, and be sure to see more Pikachu fun in Pokemon Sun and Moon, in stores November 18, and be sure to play with Pikachu wherever you go with Pokemon GO, download on the App Store or Google Play!
