Photo: Pikachu for You

Pikachu for You
The last of nine photos with Amour. She’s handing a Pikachu doll to her friend Jerica. This is actually a remote for an old Pikachu VCR… it has play, stop, fast-forward, and rewind buttons on Pikachu’s hands and feet, a power button on the Pokemon’s stomach, a remote sensor on the back of his head, and AA batteries inside.

Jerica and Amour couldn’t help but laugh. 😀

I wish Amour good fortune in her modeling and psychology career, and the same for Jerica in her field of study.

  1. I think you’re thinking of evolving Pikachu. You could do exactly what you described, but instead of teaching surf, use a thunderstone. You cannot teach Pikachu surf in red either, even if it’s the one from yellow. The only legit way to get him at that point was through Pokemon Stadium.

  2. I am from the Netherlands. The big Pokemon hype is over now, but people still love them. It’s still on National TV and the Toy Stores still have small pokemon departments

  3. Great picture. I know Pokemon was popular in the us for a while, but it was, and is still very popular in other countries. They have incorporated Pokemon into just about everything you can imagine.

    1. I know, it will never end. Nintendo keeps making new games and adding new stories, attacks, etc. I’m sure the games and movies are way too complicated now, but I guess they entertain children. 🙂

  4. Haha I used to be into pokemon and definitely get the joke! Raichu was a far more powerful beast than pikachu though…

    1. I remember playing Pokemon Yellow and I never evolved Pikachu because then he’d stop following you around. Then in Pokemon Stadium 2 your Pokemon Yellow Pikachu has the Light Ball which makes Thunderbolt twice as powerful… fun fun fun.
