Pokémon fans know it: pocket monsters almost only speak by shouting their first name.

With the exception of this recent TikTok video quickly removed by the official page after its publication.

If Pokémon could talk like humans, it is almost certain that they would have many things to say whether it was for their treatment in combat or to advocate for a more comfortable Poké Ball. Others like Machopeur or Tygnon could serve as sports coaches or as a source of motivation / energy. This could also be the case for this supercharged Pikachu observed in a video published by the official Pokémon channel on Tiktok:
The short sequence has since been deleted from the social network… But the Internet, as always, is as fast as a cheetah and several users were able to get their hands on the video. It illustrates a Pikachu and a Lucario dancing to the rhythm of a remastered English version of Si tu a la joie au Coeur Clap your hands. The adaptation is made by Smith, an artist who decides to include insults in the piece.
A first for Pikachu?
How could this have happened? In the comments of the video, several individuals try to seek the origin of this incident. The most cited reason being that the people in charge of the TikTok page don’t speak English, so they didn’t understand the lyrics of the song and just recognized the tune from the children’s rhyme. In the process, users of the social network had to report the problems to the social media manager of the page who deleted the content.
An event that can make you smile and raises the following question: have incarnations of Pikachu ever had a flowery language for the Most popular pokemon around the world ? On paper, the answer is no. Something that we owe to the extremely thorough control of Nintendo around the image of the license. However, not too long ago, it was the movie Detective Pikachu that brought the Electric-type Pokémon to the big screen with the actor Ryan Reynolds as voice actor. A comedian known for his roles that rarely respect etiquette, such as the Deadpool’ saga, which makes Pikachu say words like Hell and Damn.
What goes beyond the image of the Pokémon, which will soon bid farewell to the television series: it was him the star Pokémon of the adaptation, accompanying Sacha on all his journeys on the small screen for more than 20 years.
