A giant Pikachu joins the staff of Polygon for a day

Meet our very cute, very short-lived intern

Pikachu’s had a busy couple of months in the lead-up to Pokémon Sun and Moon.

The games arrive Nov. 18, which means the series mascot has spent the last few months getting battle-ready once more. This time around, though, Pikachu’s training included another kind of task entirely: working an office job.

There’s no better office job than one at Polygon, so Pikachu came on down to our New York City headquarters and landed an editorial internship. What followed was an enlightening workday ... which really showed Pikachu that the Pokémon had better just stick to its day job of fighting other monsters instead of trying to write news stories or make coffee.
