Last year we saw Pikachu defeated Leon’s Charizard in the Masters’ Eight Tournament. And while it’s currently unknown what’s next for our favorite cuddly electric mouse Pokemon, it seems like TikTok has revealed a new potential career for this beloved mascot. The most interesting thing is that this is already a kind of canon in the Pokémon universe.
TikTok user @blochrist posted video of a local wrestling match where someone wearing a Pikachu costume used Body Slam on their opponent. The move was super effective, and the crowd went wild after seeing this giant yellow Pokémon attack another human.
People who saw the video were shocked to see Pikachu hit someone without any electrical movements. But in all honesty, Ash’s Pikachu is already overpowered by default, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a simple tackle or body slam would do some damage.
While it might seem far-fetched to see an Electric-type Pokémon using a Fighting-type move, it’s actually canon in the Pokémon universe. Pikachu can learn the Body Slam move using TMs. And thanks Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, Pikachu can be a fighting type thanks to the game’s new mechanic, terastalization. Also in the Pokémon spin-off game pokemon tournament, Pikachu has an official wrestler’s outfit and is nicknamed “Masked Pikachu”.
So maybe Pikachu should learn some moves from Ash’s Incineroar if it wants to make a career in the Pokémon wrestling world. But for now, it’s at least broadening its horizons after becoming world champions with Ash and his team.
