While most people wait in eager anticipation for the Pokémon Sun and Moon release, while potentially keeping themselves busy by photoshopping the sh*t out of the world's seemingly least favorite Pokémon starter of all time, Popplio...other folks in Hong Kong marched in protest over Nintendo's plan to use the Putonghua (Mandarin Chinese) translation for 100+ Pokémon characters in the Hong Kong version of Pokémon Sun and Moon.

The core of the fans' unrest is with the Pikachu name change. Previously known as "Beikaaciu" but now set to be referred to as Pikaqiu in future games.

6,000 people banded together to sign off on a petition in March asking Nintendo to reverse the changes, but the request went on to be ignored.

Peach John, a Japanese clothing/lingerie retailer might've had the best of intentions when they hit the drawing board to brainstorm a Pokémon-dedicated lingerie line; but the final result just, well, it just feels wrong. You can almost hear the masked cries of multiple Pikachus ring out from that eerie pic of the lingerie on display.



Apparently this collection also contains a bathrobe (with the Pikachu-faced hood), and a Poké Ball beauty case (kind of awesome tbh).
