It is difficult to imagine a world without Pikachu. In fact, the nice yellow doll won us all over. That said, I remember the launch of the Pokémon Go game well and the madness that all players went through in order to find it. However, you may not know that Pikachu was supposed to be very different from what it is today. In fact, Nintendo Americana wanted a much bolder design than Pikachu and even involves a tiger.
Did you know that Pikachu was supposed to be a tiger with huge breasts?
In an interview with The Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara, he revealed that Nintendo had unusual ideas for Pikachu. The aim was to please users in the western world even more.
According to this official, the first time that the Pokémon game was shown to Nintendo Americana, they were told that they were too dear and submitted some ideas to replace them. However, they never expected what was coming.
“They turned Pikachu into a tiger with huge breasts”. She looked almost like a character from the well-known musical “Cats”. When in the meantime the head of The Pokémon Company asked him how he could be Pikachu, he was told: “Can’t you see? still has a tail! ”.
Of course, Pikachu has been changing over the years, although there were never huge breasts in the design. The character used to have a little more fat in the 90s, and since then she has been much more in line. At least, it was, before quarantine.
It almost seems like a lie, but it’s really true. Sometimes, many characters from the eastern market undergo changes to be more received in the western world. It almost reminds us of the changes that are made to many Chinese dishes consumed here, in order to become more appealing to the type of taste that we are used to. Fortunately, in most cases, the changes are good and do not involve extra props. Have you ever imagined what would be a Son Goku with huge breasts fighting from the top?
