    A decade of Pikachu will be celebrated at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade this November. A balloon shaped like the franchise mascot will participate in the parade for the tenth straight year.

    That balloon is so adorable. I'm not a huge fan of Pikachu, but he's just so cute there. 8D

    Macy's Parade always makes me feel really nostalgic. I have no idea why O:

    Because it's filled with numerous icons from years past? (And on one occasion, RickRolling.)

    Glad to see that Pikachu is flying once again. Sucks that I can't see it live, but what can you do?

    And it's times like this where I look at people and say, "And you're telling me pokemon isn't popular anymore?"

    Oh Arceus, I remember that. xD No, I don't think it's necessarily the characters in the parade that do it. I dunno. D: But I like it a lot :B

    I thought they retired the Pikachu baloon years ago, considering the franchises popularity in the states was going down after the start of Gen 3.....

    Probably will watch the parade for this, though I've never recalled actually ever watching it before..

    Wonder if another meme will make an appearance? PokeBall balloon opens up and.. A WILD MUDKIP APPEARED?!

    Oh the Pikachu balloon, good times XD. 10th annaversaries are great times to break
    out something special, and I think Pika is enough of an icon to make random appearances even later on. I never have the patience to sit through watching the whole parade, I've seen it enough as a kid, but I'm glad they brought back Pika again.

    As noted in the article, that was the first Pikachu balloon. We're onto the second one now :)

    Wonder if they'll be rolling out a new Mario balloon this year in honor of the 25th anniversary of Super Mario Bros.

    And guys, just to clarify, the original Pikachu balloon was retired and replaced in 2006 in honor of the 10th anniversary of Pokemon Red and Green, this balloon is the one that replaced it that year. Also, they aren't doing anything special this year; there has been a Pikachu balloon every year since the first one debuted 10 years ago.

    Yea! Giant Pikachu! I love watching the Macy's Thanksgiving parade every year. I get all happy and melt into my turkey and gravy lol. Mmmmm...gravy...

    Anyways, back on topic, I like that Pikachu float. They should have other Pokémon (like Bulbasaur or something) floats, too. Then I would probably watch the whole thing. But probably not. Sometimes the parade gets boring. idk

    Also, I love the parade. The floats are awesome and the performances they do are fun.

    Wonder if they're making any changes to the new balloon or if's exactly the same as the previous one?

    Ten straight years? Wow, learn something new everyday. When I saw the entry, I thought Pikachu was retuning to the parade in order to get the hype up for the Black and White games or something like that.
