"Pikachu Outbreak" Returns to Yokohama in August of 2015

How will the Minato Mirai district contend with 1000 dancing Pikachu?

 

“Gotta catch `em all!” is Pokemón's catch-phrase, but who will be catching whom when 1000 adorable Pikachu return to infect dance-mania on the people of the Minato Mirai area of Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan?

 

 

For a few days in August, the “Odoru? Pikachu Tairyou Hassei-chuu!”, aka the “Pikachu Outbreak”, will transform this business district into a Pokemón theme park, complete with decorations, theme events, and some 1000 dancing / marching Pikachu spread throughout the area.

 

 

A similar plague of Pikachu hit the Minato Mirai area last year. Here's some video of the 2014 “Pikachu Outbreak”:
