Snapchat is frequently used by companies promoting their products, and the Pokémon Company is no exception. There is now a Pikachu Snapchat filter, and it is absolutely adorable. You can now turn your face into a Pikachu’d version, complete with nose, red cheeks, and ears. Opening your mouth will cause Pikachu to appear, firing electricity all over the screen.

The Pokémon Company has not said how long the filter will be available, but you can check it out now if you have Snapchat. It does not appear that the filter is promoting any particular release.
