About Pikachu Onesie
Pokémon (Japanese for 'Pocket Monsters') is a series of video games, card games, and related merchandise, in which players pit a fictional species of monsters against each other in order to become the best Pokémon trainer in the game. Since its creation in Japan in 1996, Pokémon has become the second most successful video game franchise of all time.
Most notable of the monsters in Pokémon is the iconic image of Pikachu. With its yellow skin, red cheeks and zig-zag tail, Pikachu was designed around the concept of electricity, with its name based on the Japanese characters 'pika' (The sound that an electrical spark makes) and 'chu' (the squeak of a mouse.)
'Onesies' (sold in Japan as a 'kigu' with a low-hanging crotch and baggier cut, and often in the shape of an animal) have become popular in recent years, used for dressing up as animals or characters, or even as an alternative to pyjama or lounge wear, given their comfortable and baggy nature.
Based on the Pikachu design, Pikachu onesies have brown stripes across the back, the characteristic zig-zag tail, pointed ears, as well as an impression of the character's face on the hood.
Sizes for onesies vary from place to place, with some giving sizes such as small, medium and large (measurements generally being based on height due to their loose fitting) and other places giving them a 'one size fits all' sizing, specialised for adults. When buying one-size fits all clothes, those below five-foot and above six-foot should check the exact measurements as a rule of thumb.
