Here’s a glitchy picture of that Pokémon:

The latest figure from the A Day with Pikachu range has been revealed. It’s called Surprises to Fall For, and it comes out this month (via the Pokémon Center Online website).

Here’s what it looks like:

Autumn has arrived, and Pikachu is wasting no time diving into a little outdoor fun. And by “diving in,” we mean “diving into a big ol’ pile of fallen leaves.” Surprises to Fall For is the latest figure in Funko’s continuing A Day with Pikachu collection, and sure enough, it features the beloved Electric-type Pokémon popping out of a pile of brightly colored leaves. Joining Pikachu for playtime is Pumpkaboo, and judging by the smiles on their faces, the two Pokémon are having a blast! And seriously, how cute is that stray leaf perched on Pikachu’s head?
