Japan picked Pikachu as their unofficial World Cup mascot. Now certain fans can buy a Japan shirt that features the Pokemon character on it. 

In a special Adidas Japan shirt that (unfortunately...maybe) will not be available in the UK or North America, Pikachu will be featured alongside the traditional Japan crest. It'll run you 7,400 yen in Japan (£45 or so), if you're inclined to make the trek to pick up the shirt.
