So we know that Pikachu refers to a species of Pokémon that are basically yellow rodent-like creatures with powerful electrical abilities. It made its first appearance in Pokémon Red and Green in Japan. Today, Pokémon Air was unveiled, and it’s a Pikachu toy unlike any other. Think of it as a rubber creature that you can ride around or lounge on, and it supports up to 220-pounds without any issues. There are no wheels, so you’ll have to put your hopping skills to the test if you choose the former.
