Pikachu appears in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade for 15th consecutive year.
This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade marks Pikachu’s 15th consecutive appearance. During this year’s event, however, The Pokémon Company has revealed that a new Pikachu will be making its appearance in balloon form.
As you can see in the picture above, this new Pikachu has a festive green and red holiday scarf, as well as a Snowman Pikachu doll. The balloon comes in celebration of the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, which are scheduled to launch on November 21, 2014 for the Nintendo 3DS.
This year, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will take place on Thursday, November 27. Those interested in checking out the new balloon can attend in person or even catch the parade on television.
