Snapchat is popular for its quirky and cute filters that transform your face into some pretty cool stuff, and now you can turn yourself into Pikachu! They’ve included a new filter that gives you the Pokemon’s signature yellow ears, button nose, and red pouches on the cheeks. The really cool thing here is that you’ll even perform an attack (complete with sounds) if you open your mouth!
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a Pikachu, now’s your chance to do it using the mobile app. However, keep in mind that this is a limited lens and it will be pulled out within a few days. The Pikachu Snapchat filter runs from August 14-16, so if you have plans of trying it out, make sure to snap some pictures with the special lens before they take it down.
The official Pokemon Twitter account has shared an announcement showcasing the filter’s special effects. Take a look at the electrifying teaser below:
Snapchat is available to download for free on Android and iOS.
