I'm not the world's biggest Pokémon expert, but I do know that half a dozen schoolchildren fisting a Pikachu is an image too rich to pass up for this week's Shop Contest.
Really, you need me to explain what's going on here? OK well, actually, I can't. Bash, our Japanese speaker, can't, either. In his writeup on Tuesday, he said only that this Pikachu shows up to surprise kids with a Pokémon "quiz rally." And this is the outcome? Did they win? Did the Pikachu lose? Is that nice lady helping them stuff their hands inside his mouth?
