Pikachu, I choose you! ... said Japanese National soccer team uniform designer, Adidas. Soccerly reports
that everyone's favorite electric mouse and several of his poke-pals will be the official mascots for Japan's soccer team as they head to the World Cup in Brazil.

, then the partnership with Pennzoil
at SXSW, and now this. But hey, we aren't going to argue with Pikachu dressed in a soccer uniform. Just look at how cute
he is! D'awwww.
