Say 'I Choose You' With Pikachu Marriage Registration Forms

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

One couple already turned their wedding into a full-blown Pokémon bash in December. Pikachu wedding rings also debuted last year. Couples in Japan will soon be able to make the Pokémon franchise's connection to their married life even more official. The August issue of Recruit's Zexy marriage information magazine will bundle a Pikachu-themed marriage registration form on Friday.

The marriage form is a collaboration between the magazine and the upcoming Pokémon film Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! (Gekijōban Pocket Monster: Kimi ni Kimeta!), which will open in Japan on July 15.

To mark the release of its Pikachu marriage registration forms, Zexy is holding a Twitter campaign to give away a one-of-a-kind Pikachu "welcome board." The item will feature a Pikachu design with the names and wedding date of one lucky couple. For a chance to win, people must follow the magazine's official Twitter account. In a video streaming on the account, Pikachu says something that is also part of the upcoming anime film's title. People who use the campaign hashtag and tweet a guess about what Pikachu says in the video will be eligible to win.

Sailor Moon has released several marriage registration form designs. Other anime to get their own marriage registration forms in Japan include Detective Conan, One Piece, and Yuruyuri.
