Out of ALL the Pokémon Go stories, and there have been roughly three billion of them, this one is my favourite.
Historically, celebrated figures are cast in bronze (or something similar) to be remembered forever. So, really this felt like a natural progression for the ever developing Pokémon Go narrative.
The people of New Orleans woke up to this fine commemoration to Pikachu over the weekend after the statue was illegally erected out of the blue.

According to Metro, it wasn't put up by the city. So, sadly, it'll probably be removed soon. But it is a grand effort.
As of yet no-one has claimed responsibility for the undeniable work of art.
