Pikachu of the Sea is Real
Until now, many people believed that Pikachu, one of the most popular Pokémon Go characters was modeled off a mouse. Contrary to these beliefs, reliable research from Japan suggests that Pikachu is actually molded off thecacera pacifica, a unique species of sea slug found in the African Coast of the Indian Ocean and some parts of the Western Pacific Ocean.
This lively yellow critter with shades of blue and black-tipped pointed ears not only looks adorable, but also has striking similarities to Pikachu. It’s not difficult even for the untrained eye to notice these amazing similarities between Pokémon Go Pikachu and this unique sea slug.
So for those of us who are obsessed with catching ‘em all, you can jet off to the African coast, Vanuatu or Indonesia and you’re likely to find “Pikachu sea slug.” The problem is; it’s highly poisonous you wouldn’t be able to keep it as a pet. But, you’ll at least consider yourself one of the lucky few to have found a live Pokémon.
