You can’t believe everything you read on the internet. After the announcement of Pokemon X/Y, images of this feisty little guy started showing up all over Twitter.
Kaenchu, in which “Kaen” is Japanese for “blaze” or “flame”, is claiming to be the new evolution of Pikachu. Well, anybody who has ever played ANY Pokemon knows that Pikachu already has an evolved form, Raichu. Apparently this image surfaced from 2ch, a popular Japanese image board, where it was then uploaded to Twitter and shared with the gullible world.
It’s a shame this Pokemon isn’t legit, I would have loved to see a flamethrowing Pikachu!
