Pikachu is now at New Orleans’ Lower Garden District Park…no, not in Pokemon GO, I mean for real as a statue.
It is unknown who placed the statue in the park or exactly when it was placed in the defunct fountain, but the statue appears to pay homage to the Pokemon GO, a location-based augmented reality game.
One of the most sought after creatures is Pikachu.
Many people seemed to be in disbelief and had to see for the statue for themselves.
Its a nice gesture to honor the release of Pokemon GO and nostalgic considering the long history of the Pokemon IP.
