Pikachu runs and leaps over obstacles as he chases after Team Skull in this epic Alola Island adventure.
We’ve seen some amazing parkour videos in the past, with Mario and Luigi barreling over obstacles in the real world, and people taking on the world’s largest parkour course in China, but now it’s time to journey to a different setting for another display of parkour prowess, this time in Hawaii, the real-world inspiration for the Alola region from the hugely popular video games Pokémon Sun and Moon.
While the setting is breathtaking in its beauty, it’s the action that goes on in this parkour clip that has Pokémon fans everywhere paying attention. Starring crowd favourite Pikachu, the electric Pokémon can be seen leaping over walls and jumping from rooftops as he chases after Team Skull on this epic parkour adventure.
Take a look at the video below:
The beautifully shot clip really makes it look like Pikachu and Team Rocket are racing around Alola Island.
The adventure begins when a couple of members from Team Skull come across a Pokémon egg, quickly bagging it up and stealing it as…
Pikachu arrives on the scene, furrowing his brows in anger, before racing after the duo.
The role of Pikachu is perfectly played by Calen Chan, who embodies the spirit and energy of the electric Pokémon as he bounds through Alola Island, hurling himself through trees and over rooftops. Chan made one epic stumble in the video, which they kept in the storyline, and despite the intensity of the fall, thankfully Chan was uninjured, only winding himself in the process.
Take a look at the fall in the behind-the-scenes video below:
Shot by filmmaker Devin Graham, a self-proclaimed Pokémon fan, the video combines action, suspense and adventure in a fun way that brings the animated world of Pokémon Sun and Moon to life. We can’t wait to see what Graham and his team get up to next in their Pokémon-loving adventures!
