Real Life Pikachus Auctioned for $925 Million

Posted on September 10, 2008

If you are a fan of anything Japan, then you have to know about Pikachu, the main character from the internationally famous cartoon Pokemon.

Some lucky people received the chance of a lifetime last new years eve, when a man claiming to have discovered a Pikachu forest offered to catch live Pikachus for around $925 million each through a Yahoo! Japan Auction.

The auction limited the number of Pikachus that would be caught to 20 and with the purchase of 3 months of Pikachu food, the seller would provide a 60 minute training video to help teach new owners how to properly raise a young Pikachu.

We figure anyone who was willing to pay the $925 million probably ended up with something like this in the mail:

Oh yeah I want one of these as well as well as just about everyone else who has seen these pictures, but I would want some proof that they was real and not just some made up hamster or rat with dyed fur and photo-shopped ears.

I've dyed mice, its possible it was dyed but unlikely, mice are wriggly when you dye them so it wouldn't get the marking so straight.

awww i saw the second picture and thought of them doing that to MY rat. anyone even ATTEMPTING to touch my little Victor to do this wouldn't just lose the left one, he'd lose both... when you look at the ears in the second pic, you can totally see how obviously photoshopped they are.

one of the cutest things i've ever seen...that is, if it was real. too bad it's not. they really should find a way to create pokemon for real. that would be so EPIC!!!

my new neighbor bought it and when he invited me over to help wash "Pikachu" the spray paint washed off and the "Pokemon Food" was actually rat food.

This is ridiculously photoshopped. I mean, look at its eyes! Eliminate the chunks of white and you get little, itty-bitty eyes. Scary. Yeah, maybe some of it is real, but you never know. 1/2 photoshopped; 1/2 air-brushed. Poor thing, it must have died by now.

HA! This is funny as those 'poodles' that made the news not long ago that the new owners had trouble raising. They did not notice the hooves!

To all you flamers out there, stop stereotyping photoshop as a tool for false illustrations. If you think whatever can be done just by using photoshop, why don't YOU go and use it yourself and try to make a pikachu out of a rat. If you can make it look this real then fine. Maybe its edited then fine, but you don't have to find every flaw out of it right? Do you know what is appreciation? Can your standards of art even get near this? Get a photo of a rodent and PHOTOSHOP it, EVEN IF PHOTOSHOP IS A VERB. Talent and skills are needed to master PS, but most of all its the BRAIN. And losers like you lack it, so you go around flaming and blaming photoshop. Why don't you go photoshop youself with an enormous dick, since you have loads of time to flame like douchebags online? Back off losers.

oh come one, I doubt that there are any running around in some forest, but I will not question as to whether they could genetically engineer something like that.

Anyone who would fall for this and would seriously place a bid of even one dollar (or yen, or whatever) on this would deserve to lose everything, including their trachea. The gene pool must be cleaned sometimes.
