The Avengers may be the mightiest heroes on Earth, but they are not the only heroes coming up in pop culture. Following the debut of Avengers: Endgame, other heroes like Pikachu have hit theaters thanks to Detective Pikachu. So, it only makes sense that one intrepid fan would figure out which Pokemon best suits the likes of, say, Thor.
Over on Twitter, a now-viral post has convinced fans of Thor’s destined Pokemon partner. Just like Ash Ketchum and Tim Goodman before him, Thor seems destined to pick Pikachu, but not for the reasons you may assume.
Sure, the two may share a love of electricity, but a user on Twitter called Kro figured out their deepest connection. It turns out Thor and Pikachu share a special expression in common, and tens of thousands of fans believe the sign must means something.
Me:Pikachu would be Thor's Pokemon— kro_◇ (@kchrow) May 13, 2019
Friend:Because Thor is the god of thunder?
As you can see above, the post shows Thor squinting in an odd way. His crumpled face has got Bruce Banner, AKA the Hulk, feeling out of sorts. And if you look to the right, Pikachu can be seen making a similar face.
This viral post has gained attention from fans all over, and Pokemon lovers took it to the next level. Some have gone so far as to structure an entire Pokemon party for Thor, and it involves lots of lightning. From Manectric to Zapdos and Jolteon, Thor has lots of pocket monsters to pick from, but Pikachu remains his favorite. The only thing left is to convince Rocket Raccoon of the pick and then Thor is good.
