“Haven’t you always wanted to have a conversation with Pikachu? Well, now you can! You can talk to Pikachu about anything—you’re sure to hear all sorts of wonderful and charming responses. Ask Pikachu to “use Thunderbolt,” and then hear if it’s in the mood to use its electrifying move! Say “tell me a funny story,” and then Pikachu will spin a yarn as only it can. If it’s your special day, Pikachu can “sing ‘Happy Birthday to You.’ ” Even something silly, like “say ‘pizza’ ten times,” will get Pikachu chatting! There’s plenty more for you and Pikachu to talk about—just say “Alexa, ask Pikachu to talk,” and then chat away!”
