A Day With Pikachu

The Pokémon Company have revealed the latest A Day With Pikachu figure, which will be available later this month via the Pokémon Center Online website, and which is called Splashing Away Summer!

Here’s some details and pictures:

As summer continues to heat up, Pikachu knows that a dip in a pool is a great way to stay cool. Splashing Away Summer is the latest figure in Funko’s continuing A Day with Pikachu collection, and it features the lovable Pikachu in a somewhat precarious position as it tries to relax. Poor Pikachu is just trying to chill out on its Psyduck float toy, but an errant wave threatens to knock it into the water. Even Pikachu’s cup of Fresh Water is about to topple! Harsh!
