The Pokémon Company has been going all out this April Fool’s Day. One of its many initiatives for this day was an official Team Rocket takeover, which took place via the company’s social media pages, including Twitter. Team Rocket hoped to catch Ash’s Pikachu once and for all, but failed to do so and ended up blasting off again, as shown in the videos and GIF below. You can join in on the fun by using the #TeamRocketTakeover hashtag.
Thanks for nothing, Twerps! Because of you, we didn’t catch Pikachu! But you won’t get rid of us that easily—we’ll be back! #TeamRocketTakeover
