The aim of this category is to focus on the cultural symbolism of pikachu and related pokemon (eg. Pichu)
Expanded Description:
Pikachu is a the yellow animal/pokemon with red cheeks in the Pokemon Nintendo game and anime TV show. The initial rise of pokemon was tremendous, leading to a full range of items based on Pikachu and other characters. It also led to a variety of fan art and culture. Although not easy to find, there are images and items fashioned to look like Pikachu out there in the community. There are also fan uses of the name on signs and items. With the decline of the Pokemon fad, they are harder to find, but they are out there (hint, try anime stores, or Japanese culture areas for things like window displays, statues or images on signs etc).

Pikachu sightings can be anything in a pikachu likeness, Pikachu related name, or with a pikachu or Pichu picture on it, whether Nintendo licesed or not. Examples are a carnival game, carving, cosplay participant, piece of art, store providing pikachu items etc.

Please stick to public sightings that can possibly be re-found. Yes, a cosplayer might move, but they tend to pop up again, same with an item on a car etc. Those are OK. What I'm trying to avoid are private pictures of kids toys etc. (I consider a previous such entry grandfathered, since I hadn't explained this at that time)
