How a Phony Pikachu Trolled Japanese Twitter Users

Shortly after Nintendo revealed the newest Pokémon, Pocket Monsters X/Y, the above image started circulating on Twitter. "This seems to be an image of the evolved Pikachu from the new Pokémon," the tweet read.

Another image of this evolved Pikachu, which was apparently named "Kaenchu" (カエンチュ), also started making its way around the internet in Japan around the same time. The name "Kaenchu" contains "kaen" (火炎), the Japanese word for "flame" or "blaze". (3DS, Pokemon X and Y)

Well that's interesting if that's true. Pickachu would be like Evee and evolve from stones. Nah it's fake!
