For years now, Funko has been creating collectible figures of characters from dozens of pop culture brands. Known for their large, square-shaped heads and distinctive round eyes, hundreds of different Funko Pop! vinyl figures have hit store shelves—and Funko has added Pikachu to that extensive list. This stylized take on the iconic Electric-type Pokémon is the first-ever Pokémon Pop! figure. The Pikachu Pop! stands 4 inches tall, and it’s bound to be a unique addition to your Pokémon collection. This unique figure is now available exclusively at Target stores in the U.S. for a limited time. The same figure is launching in Australia via EB Games in December 2018, with pre-orders available now. Funko is also planning a 10-inch version of the Pikachu Pop! figure for release later this year.
Pokedex Entry #025:
Pikachu – The mouse pokémon. This pokémon has electricity-storing pouches on its cheeks. These appear to become electrically charged during the night while Pikachu sleeps. It occasionally discharges electricity when it is dozy after waking up. Pikachu can help other Pikachu who are feeling weak by sharing its electric current. Pikachu’s tail is sometimes struck by lightning as it raises it to check its surroundings. When several of these Pokémon gather, their electricity could build up and cause lightning storms. Forest dwellers, they are few in number and exceptionally rare. The pouches in their cheeks discharge electricity at their opponents. Pikachu are believed to be highly intelligent.
The face of the Pokemon franchise since 1995, Pikachu is universally recognised and adored by fans the world over. Whether you’ve played Pokemon Yellow with Pikachu following behind you, or followed Ash Ketchum’s journey to be a Pokemon master with Pikachu at his side, there’s no denying the equal portions of gumption and adorability present in this little guy!
