Did you ever dream about having a cute pet, or perhaps even an even cuter monster as a pet when you were a kid? Maybe you thought about this whilst watching one of your favourite TV shows? I can guarantee that almost anyone who watched Pokemon as a child thought about becoming a Pokemon trainer at least once. Who wouldn't want to dream about getting your first Pokemon before you set out on your own amazing journey. And surely if that dream came true, there would be only one choice for most fans for a first furry companion… Pikachu!
For anyone who grew up with the franchise, it's been an amazing journey watching the creation from The Pokemon Company, a legendary collaboration between Nintendo, Game Freak and Creatures, evolve into one of the worlds most well known brands. The original idea was thought up by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995, a little fun fact for you! Do you know which came first between the animation and the game too? It might surprise some people, but the game came first! But for many people not into gaming at the time, their first taste of the world of Pokemon was with the cartoon. No matter how you first learnt about this exciting world, almost everyone is hooked on it now!
There have been many Pokemon added to the roster since the original 150, but for many the most iconic is the yellow ball of fluff mascot, Pikachu! Do you even need to ask why? With his striking mix of bright yellow fur, red cheeks and pointed ears, that's already enough to make most people aww, add his cute voice into the mix and for most it's love at first sight! It's no wonder that fans of Pokemon and Pikachu alike go mad for any Pikachu themed merchandise!
We've all seen the usual t-shirts and blankets, but how about something a little more unique? Here’s a list of some of the best we found!
