Pokémon Dance the Night Away at Yokohama’s 2018 “Pikachu Outbreak”

 

Head’s up, Pokémon trainers! The city of Yokohama is bracing for another invasion of Electric Type Pokémon with the 2018 “Pikachu Outbreak”, a week long event in which some 1500 performers clad in Pikachu mascot costumes take over the Minato Mirai district.

The theme for this year’s “Pikachu Outbreak” is “Science is amazing!”, and for the first time in its 5 year history the Outbreak will include events scheduled both during the day and during the evening. Additionally, the popular “Soaking Wet Splash Show” is being upgraded with digital projection technology for the “Digital Splash Show” evening event, and the world-famous “Pikachu Parade” will incorporate the surrounding seaside for the first time.

 

 

The “Pikachu Outbreak” will run from August 10 – 16, 2018, in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
