Pokémon mascot enjoys 15th consecutive year in the parade
At this point Pikachu is a seasoned veteran of the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Pokémon superstar will be marching in the parade along with the other balloons for the 15th consecutive year, and The Pokémon Company International plans to debut a brand-new balloon for the occasion.

The 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade kicks off on Thursday, November 27, just a handful of days after Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire launch on Nintendo 3DS.
