Pikachu Steals the Show At Heat-Timberwolves

Videos by OutKick

A wild Pikachu appeared in the stands during an electric matchup between the Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves at FTX on Monday.

Viewers did a double-take as the yellow-bodied sidekick from the famed Pokémon series appeared in the fur … until viewers realized it was a dog mimicking the look.

People didn’t even bother to give Yankees legend Alex Rodriguez the same time of day as Pikachu. A-Rod was spotted with new arm candy Jac Cordeiro, who also accompanied Rodriguez to the Dolphins-Packers game at Hard Rock on Sunday.

When fans took their eyes off the contested matchup — which the Heat won, 113-110 — they focused on the ultra-dyed dog with red cheeks, sure to give the PETA collective a heart attack.

From calling the pup adorable to a clout play, fans reacted to Pikachu’s presence in primetime. And wondered how he got past security.
