So this is what Pikachu looks like chasing after the baddies.
Parkour freerunner Calen Chan leaps and runs his way through a parkour course as everyone’s favourite electric Pokémon, giving us a glimpse of how it would look like if Pikachu did parkour in real life.
Chan, who is decked out in a Pikachu onesie, travelled all the way to Hawaii — which serves as the real life inspiration behind Pokemon Sun and Moon — to film the video.
From the video, it looks like Chan purposely fell down in an attempt to fool Team Rocket.
But a behind-the-scenes video shows that Chan actually took a pretty bad fall by accident. The filmmaker, Devin Graham, decided to work it into the final video as a plot point.
“Yo guys, I’m ok now! ” Chan said in a YouTube comment on the making-of video.
“This was back in February and I’ve been rehabbing my wrist. It took a few months but it’s almost at 100% now!”
Looks like this is one battle Pikachu won.
