Brace yourselves. The Pikachu are coming.

This August Yokohama will once again be overrun by legions of everyone’s favorite yellow electric mouse Pokemon, Pikachu, when the city plays host to the 2018 Pikachu Outbreak! event (Pikachu Tairy┼Ź Hassei).


Set to take place between August 10-16 in the Minato Mirai harbor district of Yokohama, Pikachu Outbreak! is a yearly event started in 2014 to celebrate all things Pokemon – but with Pikachu as the star.

The festivities, which this year will be held under the them of “Science is amazing!” will for the first time extend past sundown in the form of a nighttime parade featuring lit-up Pikachu and a nighttime version of the “Splash Show” featuring appearances from other Pokemon as well.
