The 6th song in the currently ongoing Character Song Project for the TV Tokyo Network anime series "Pocket Monsters XY&Z (airs every Thursday at 6:55) is the first ever Pikachu theme song, sung entirely by Pikachu, and bears the name "The Pikachu Song".
Singer-songwriter Tomohisa Sako, the project's coordination producer, reported that he had done the lyrics and composition for The Pikachu Song at the "Pokémon Center Summer Festival in Centrair" event that took place at Chubu Centrair International Airport, Aichi, on the 18th.
"I made a really, really cute song! This summer I definitely want to hum it alongside you guys.", he said, the young Pokémon fans gathered there responding with loud cheers.
Since this is the first ever Pikachu theme song, there's also been a lot of interest raised towards the lyrics. There's been lots of discussion about them online, with comments like "I wonder if it's just going to go "Pika Pika", "Will there be a Japanese translation?", "That's too cute" and "It sounds like the type of song you get happy just from listening to".
The song has been chosen as the ending theme to the "Pocket Monsters XY&Z episode that airs August 4th. A digital download version will be available starting that same day.
