Topeka, Kansas to rename itself ‘Topikachu’ for one day

This coming Saturday is going to be a special day in Topeka, Kansas. For one day only, the town will be renamed to “Topikachu” in order to coincide with a special demo event for Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee. The announcement was made by Mayor Michelle De La Isla.

The demo stations will be set up in the parking lot of the Topeka Zoo at Gage Park as part of Nintendo's Pokémon Let’s Go Road Trip. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m..


Surprised that Topeka, Kansas city residents aren't up in arms about their city being renamed after a foreign Japanese national infiltrator that bombed their country in 1941!!!!


From what I heard, Topeka is a dump of a city and has other issues to deal with

Lol. It also goes both ways cause Pika is also what Japan called the radiation sickness after Hiroshima and Nagasaki

I would have called him Trumpikachu. I see an uncanny resemblance between this portrayal of Pikachu and the Trump cat.
