Title - Japan's Bullet Train Gets Its Pokemon On (Pika Pika!)
Source - Kotaku Tue, July 22nd
They've got pokemon planes so why not Pokémon trains? As summer vacation kicks off here in Japan, Japan Rail East is rolling out four Pocket Monster bullet trains for the Tohoku and Joetsu lines and one each for the Yamagata, Akita and Nagano lines. Says one 7-year-old boy traveling with his parents to Iwate Prefecture:
And Pikachu was surprised to see you.
I was surprised to see Pikachu, but I really like the character so I'm happy...It's a cool bullet train.
More use of PIkachu on municipal transport worldwide please!
