Salary Man Pikachu has been rebranded as Intern Pikachu for his release overseas. Also, instead of being billed as a Monthly Pikachu, the label suggests he is part of a Pikachu Celebrations line.


The Intern Pikachu is a Pokemon Center Original and will only be available via the official website. He’s 7.25” tall and 6.5” wide. He’s currently selling for $17.99 and ships within 24 hours. However, to qualify for free shipping a Pokemon Center order must be at least $50.
