Pikachu's love for tomatoes knows no bounds as the character continues his singing and merchandising campaign for Japanese food company Kagome. Pikachu previously starred in the “Ketchup Daze! Pokémon Campaign,” and the partnership is being revitalized with this year's "Ketchup ni Muchū! Pokemon Campaign 2017".
From Februray 1 to March 31, customers who buy Kagome ketchup products can send in their barcodes to enter to win special Pikachu collaboration goods.
500 people will win a ketchup sleeping bag Pikachu plus. The prize is an extension of the popular Pikachu sleeping bag goods line.
500 winners will also get a Pikachu ketchup mini-backpack.
Finally, 1,000 entries will be selected to win a Pikachu ketchup place mat.
Kagome has also posted several cute Pokemon-themed recipes on their campaign website, including a Pikachu omelet rice and Pikachu decorative omelet rice.
Kagome also did a "Kagome Vegetable Wall Destruction Campaign" in April 2015 for the 20th anniversary of Neon Genesis Evangelion. Lottery items included Spear of Longinus glass reproductions, Evangelion cutlery sets, and Evangelion glasses sets.
