    Pikachu Balloon in Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    Pics of the Pikachu Balloon flying over the streets of New York City during the 78th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade last Nov. 25, 2004:



    Pikachu's balloon handlers were all dressed in yellow, and were followed by the Pikachu Beetle. This year's parade was considered the best in parade history, as the weather was perfect. 8)

    Here's the Pikachu Balloon from this year's 79th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade that was held yesterday, Nov. 24, 2005, in New York City. This is the 5th consecutive year that Pikachu has been included in the parade.

    Yesterday's Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was a bit rainy than usual, so most of the balloons were flying at much lower heights, including a brand-new Pikachu balloon. Pikachu has been a parade staple since 2001, but this is the first time that they've changed the design--now Pikachu follows a Pokeball, and his cheeks also light up. 8)

    Re: Pikachu Balloon in Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

    The Pokemon Company International announced today that Pikachu will mark its 10th anniversary participating in the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. To celebrate, Pikachu will be joined by 2 new balloons in the form of Reshiram and Zekrom, the 2 main Legendary Pokemon featured in the upcoming Pokemon Black and White games.

    The 3 Pokemon balloons will be accompanied by handlers all dressed in black and white uniforms, said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokemon Company International.

    "Pikachu's participation in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of our favorite events of the year and we're proud to have been involved in such an iconic event over the past decade," said Smith. "Having Reshiram and Zekrom join the Pikachu balloon makes this year's parade extra special for us as we begin to reveal more exciting details about the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games."

    It's never too early to shamelessly plug your games, LOL...but the sight of those 3 Pokemon should be awesome.
