Japan's World Cup Team mascot is... Pikachu!

The Japan National Football team is sure to be getting an "electrifying  boost" in this World Cup with news that one of the most famous video game characters in history will be headed to Brazil as the team's official mascot, along with 10 other characters from the successful Pokemon franchise. 

Adidas, the designers of the Japanese National team kit in Brazil, announced the news that the iconic Nintendo character along with familiar faces of the franchise, such as Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle among others, will be backing up the "Samurai Blue" in their World Cup quest after both Adidas and the Nintendo franchise reached an agreement. 

They should've used Hitmonlee instead... dude's got legs and kicks real good! Missed opportunity, Japan...
