Still, that's never happened before, that it's been used in that way when the games are announced. Pikachu could represent connecting the world and thus be the way we all connect (some sort of worldwide Pikachu trading event GF authorises...?)

But with all that's been said it still comes to mind that Pikachu will be something more than it's been before due to the way X/Y were announced. Maybe it's even considered legendary here.

Your own very Pokémon story is about to unfold.
You'll face fun times and tough challenges.
A world of dreams and adventures with Pokémon awaits!
