For the 23rd year in a row, Pikachu and Eevee are set to take to the skies, riding a dazzling Poké Ball-inspired sled. These iconic Pokémon characters promise to sprinkle their own magic, dancing in the wind as they navigate their way through the city’s skyscrapers, culminating in a grand appearance at Macy’s Herald Square.

Taito Okiura, the Vice President of Marketing at The Pokémon Company International, expressed his excitement about the annual tradition, noting,

“Two decades of Pokémon’s participation in the Macy’s Parade signifies not just a tradition, but a testament to the timeless appeal of these beloved characters. As they float under the Manhattan autumn sky, they embody the spirit of the holidays and the joyous anticipation of celebrations to come.”
