No Pokémon Were Harmed in the Making of This Pikachu Burger

But you will have to go to Australia to eat one

Pokémon Go mania may have subsided ever-so-slightly since the game’s launch six weeks ago, but plenty of restaurants are still attempting to capitalize on the zeitgeist. Case in point: the amazingly intricate Pokéburgers now being served in Sydney, Australia.

The colorful burgers created in the images of three of the most popular Pokémon — Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Pikachu — are the handiwork of Down-N-Out, a pop-up paying homage to American burger chain In-N-Out (and cartoon monsters, apparently).

The secret is OUT! This weeks special is going to be HUGE! tag a mate who would bite Pikachu's face off.

Can’t get to Sydney for a Pokéburger? A Pokéball Frappuccino is as close as your nearest Starbucks, but prepare for people in line behind you to get super-pissed as the barista gets to work on your highly complicated and time-consuming customized beverage.
