Will This Pikachu AR Filter Save Snapchat?
August 15, 2017

Just when you think everyone's fled Snapchat for Instagram, the app goes and adds the best face lens of all time: friggin' Pikachu.


That's right, everyone's favorite electric mouse Pokémon is now a Snapchat lens... at least, for a limited time.


"The Pikachu Lens will be available to Snapchat account holders for only a short while, so get your fill of Pikachu photos while you can," according to the official Pokémon website.


The special Pikachu lens works exactly the same way the puppy, flower crown, and other Snapchat lenses do. Press and hold on your face and the app will work its magical face-tracking and augmented reality powers and turn you into Pikachu.

The Pokémon shows up and when you open your mouth a surge of lightning emits from your face.


If this isn't the best thing to ever happen to Snapchat, we're not sure what is. Goodbye dancing hot dog, we bid thee farewell for Pikachu is here and it is everything
