NeoGAF user botty noticed some things in Pokémon that seem to be pulled straight from Kingdom Hearts.

Here are his findings plus some other overwhelming evidence:

Loving how Niantic is stepping up with this little easter egg -- Pikachu on top the shoulder of your player is a direct reference, hat tip, etc. to the Pokémon Anime series. Now, if we could only all get this update...At this point it looks like a select few players are enjoying this new feature. When the update is finally released be sure that you walk the 10km with the SAME Pikachu.

Jimmy Derocher wanted to prove to everyone out there that was saying it was impossible to get one million XP in a day, wrong...unfortunately, Niantic wasn't so down for the occasion. Derocher went ahead and put together a special walking plan for his goal as well:



“We place[d] in-game lures on 10 Pokestops in a 0.2 mile loop, which we [planned to] walk over and over,” Derocher said. “People casually call it ‘Jimmy’s loop.’”

Derocher even tried reaching out to Niantic before taking on the challenge, asking them if he could be 'whitelisted.'



Even though Derocher did end up getting softbanned he was still able to raise a decent enough amount of money for charity.

“I logged 25 miles using the app Charity Miles, and we’ll be able to donate $50-60 to charity thanks to stream donations,” Derocher said. “[But] we easily could’ve seen 1.5x that mileage and 5-10x the charity donations given...a full stream.”

Just cause Pokémon GO hasn't hit Singapore yet, doesn't mean the policing authorities don't know their audience...
