Pokémon is a global brand. Since the franchise was created in 1996, it has steadily taken over various forms of entertainment, from video games to television to card games. Pikachu and his pals have spread around the world to become some of the most recognizable video game characters in history.
As you'll see from the video above, their reach is truly worldwide. Mashing up the original Pokémon theme song in 15 different languages, YouTube member Johan Roth provides evidence of the brand's universal appeal.
The featured languages are English, German, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Arabic, Croatian, Czech, Finnish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Polish, Greek, Spanish, and Portuguese. How many of them are you able to understand?
