A Day with Pikachu

The Pokémon Company have revealed the latest A Day with Pikachu figure, Sparkin Up A Celebration, releasing later this month via the Pokémon Center Online website:

Get ready to celebrate summer in a uniquely Pikachu way with our exclusive first look at the latest figure in Funko’s continuing A Day with Pikachu collection. The upcoming Sparking Up a Celebration figure features Pikachu sitting on a grassy hill and holding a pair of sparklers. And because this is Pikachu we’re talking about, it’s using its electricity to get those sparklers, well, sparkling! Of course, summer days can be warm, so it’s a good thing Pikachu is prepared with a cup of shaved ice and a can of Lemonade to help cool off.
