Pikachu is officially the most recognizable Pokemon on the planet,but ever since becoming Pokemon’s official ambassador in 1996, at least a couple more electric mice have popped up, like fan favorite Dedenne or the baby version Pichu and as it turns out the latter can even be taught the move “wireless charging” when holding a MagSafe Charger item.
Pichu made its Pokedex debut back in the second generation games Gold and Silver, but his cuteness and resemblance to Pikachu made him an instant hit among Pokemon fans, even being able to book a spot in Super Smash Bros. Melee right away, albeit being kind of a joke character like Street Fighter’s Dan. It’s no surprise then that Pichu is often the inspiration for many of the impressive fan-made creations that pop up online.
As Pokemon ramps up its 25th anniversary celebrations, fans start to do the same, just like artist Nendo Yoshirin who recently posted a detailed video describing the creative process behind his latest work on his Clay Yoshirin Pokémon Clay Art YouTube channel. Behold the Pichu wireless charging station, an electrifying work of art that’ll send a jolt of cuteness down anyone’s spine as Pichu cuddles phones back to life, thanks to a MagSafe charger placed in her right cheek.
The video shows the Pichu charging station is handmade entirely out of clay before being spray-painted with a perfect coat of paint that makes Pichu pop in just the right way. It’s worth noting Yoshirin chose the spiky-eared Pichu, a female variant that first appeared in Arceus and the Jewel of Life and then as an event Pokemon in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
Since the Pichu charging station comes embedded with a MagSafe wireless charger, it works for iPhones and compatible Android devices, though sadly Yoshirin’s creations are not available for sale and are only made for the artists own amusement, which is for the best unless he wants to hear from Nintendo’s lawyers. Yoshirin’s channel is packed with similar videos featuring other Pokemon fan favorites, including the Rotom iPad seen in the video above.
As a new “Pokemon Presents” takes place and Post Malone’s first Pokemon single beautifully mashes Hootie and the Blowfish’s “Only Wanna Be With You” with the Ecruteak City theme, the Pokemon Day Virtual Concert is looking more promising than ever, just don’t forget to charge that phone.
