The Pikachu Outbreak Festival has been held in Yokohama for five years in a row. The event sees groups of Pikachu come together to march the streets.
The event is set to return for its sixth run in summer, with the main programmes set to be held at nighttime. Lighting technology will be used with the Pikachu army against the backdrop of Minato Mirai’s gorgeous nightscape. More than 2,000 Pikachu are being mobilised, the biggest number in the event’s history.
In front of Yokohama Art Museum, the Pikachu will don LED lights on t heir costumes and hold up LED flags as they perform for the public.
The Pikachu will also dance around giant water fountains in front of Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse’s park with a panoramic view of Yokohama Bay Bridge in the background.
The Eevee army will also join the fray again this year. Also occurring alongside the Outbreak is Pokémon GO Fest in Yokoham which can be attended by signing up in advance
