However, as per the reports from NewsGamme, the station ticket wickets were also making Pikachu noises. Usually, the Ticket wickets go for a beep, but at the time of Pikachu outbreak, they went for Pika-Pika. Yokohama, the second-largest city around 20 minutes from Tokyo has been a hospitable host for such special events.
One of the best tactics is to enjoy the happenings is to treat it like a real-life game of Pokemon. Enjoying the train rides at Minato Mirai Station and trying to randomly encounter Pikachus.
This time the Pikachu outbreak event was held from August 6 to August 12. Last time the event was held it featured the likes of Eeves as special guests.
