Pokemon is one of the most lucrative franchises in the world, so as you can imagine, it has no issues churning out merchandise. Over the decades, the series has put out some very pricey pieces, and there are tons out there collectors will go to war for. This means The Pokemon Company is always on the lookout for top-tier products, and one fan might snag the brand's eye after making a life-size Pikachu statue that doubles as an actual charger.
The product comes courtesy of Nedno Yoshirin over on Twitter (plasmaclusterha) as you can see below. It was there the clay artist decided it was time to spice up their homemade projects. That is why they documented themselves turning a Pikachu statue into a wireless charger, and their idea is honestly too brilliant for words.

Now, before you try to make this Pokemon project yourself, it's worth noting Yoshirin did custom make this Pikachu figure. He designed the life-size statue so that it would cradle a phone or tablet just right. After all, the statue is made so that Pikachu nestles the electronic against one of its cheek pads. The pad was fitted by Yoshirin to house a wireless charging base, so that is how Pikachu is able to charge up devices. And as you can imagine, fans are already determined to follow after Yoshirin by making their own cute chargers.
This is not the first time the clay artist has made a wireless charging statue either. Their first was actually Pichu last year. Now, Pikachu has been given his own adorable statue, so it is just a matter of time before Raichu shows up demanding their own makeover.
