Big companies can get a little carried away when celebrating a major anniversary, and that seems to be the case with The Pokémon Company. It commissioned British artist Quentin Devine to produce a mosaic of Pikachu, following up similar projects he's completed in the past such as a Mona Lisa and a Queen Elizabeth II mosaic made out of penny coins.

This time around he created a Pikachu using 12,987 trading cards - "measuring 71.54 square metres and hanging at over 10 metres tall and 7 metres wide" - which has been unveiled in Paris and sets a 'World Record'. Frankly, he could have got it up to a nice round number of 13,000 cards, but we're being petty.

It's rather impressive to look at - check it out below.
