The Real Pikachu by Lagutin The Real Pikachu by Lagutin
I made a Pikachu using a photo licensed from stock
credits to photographer: © Loginov

Please stop bashing me for "pikachu is a mouse"
I knew that all the time and I don`t find real mouse or rat looks like pikachu at all - the ears, paws, tail and especially the head So I used a kitty photo because it`s closer to original design for my opinion. And I enhanced original pokeball a little to look more realistic + added led lights for indication that pokemon is out. Thank you for watching!

This is freaking cute, I'd want one! :iconcraiplz:
It always bugged me that pikachu is supposed to be a mouse Pokemon because let's get real here, pikachu looks like a rabbit-cat hybrid more than any mouse ever.

 a lot of people use kittens for pikachu.  Its actually so much closer than an actual mouse or rat.  and it looks so cute too!!  great work!

In our minds, we also didn't designate Pikachu as a particular animal. It's always been just Pikachu. A cute loveable creature. [FYI: We obviously don't play the video game, or follow the backstory of this particular character. It's definitely not serious enough to bash someone over. Sad situation really.] Kiki just said "Sometimes we don't have to know what something is to like it." Wise gal. Nevertheless, we believe your manip is RAWRSOMMMMMME! Keep up the great work! And in parting, we leave you with this bit of philosophy about other's criticisms: "Opinions are like buttholes, everyone's got one." (Well, most of us.) :squee: Kirk & Kiki :happybounce:
