Japan. Skymark launches Pokemon themed plane
Debut is scheduled for next June 28th
Precisely in this 2021, Pokemon celebrated its quarter century since creation. The famous Japanese video game series was in fact created in 1996 and after 25 years it is still very popular, especially in the country of origin. The low-cost Japanese air carrier Skymark, in fact, has decided to associate its livery with that of the Pokemon characters (read also the article published by AVIONEWS). The company has launched an aircraft with this singular theme to say the least, specifically a B-737/800 that has clearly imprinted an image of the mascot, Pikachu. The immortalized scene is that of the famous imaginary creature as it flies clinging to balloons. The airplane was renamed for the occasion "Pikachu Jet BC" just to give even greater prominence to this character. Skymark will rely on the aircraft in question for connections between the capital Tokyo and Okinawa. The official debut is scheduled in a few days, to be precise next June 28, so the waiting is not so long.
The Asian airline has existed since 1996, a not exactly surprising coincidence if one thinks of the commercial operation just described. Its main shareholders are the managing director Shinichi Nishikubo (35.47%) and the travel agency His (27.62%). The Pokemon were back very topical a few years ago with the “Go” version which consisted of a sort of hunt for imaginary monsters through geo-localized augmented reality via Gps, a novelty that has had great success all over the world.
