One of the best things to come barrelling out of the 80s alongside Donkey King and the Garbage Pail Kids was a man with glasses and a fondness for red and white shirts. Known as Wally (or Waldo in the US and Canada), the star of a successful book series mesmerised people around the world by simply hiding out in massive scenes involving hundreds of tiny characters.

This challenge of finding a needle in a haystack is the gift that just keeps on giving because now clever artists in Japan have been creating artworks concealing the whereabouts of our beloved Pikachu. The best thing about these is that once you’ve found the star of the show, you can then keep going until you’ve found all your favourites from the Pokémon series! It’s time to test out your hunting skills after the jump.

A number of artists have posted their intricate Pokémon works online. The latest one is a colourful feast for the eyes from Twitter user Yavazin. How long will it take you to find Pikachu? (Click the images for a larger size.)


▼ Here’s another sea of Pocket Monsters to wade through. Extra points if you spot the star of the series without enlarging or using a magnifying glass!


▼ And now to a starry night sky filled with Pocket Monsters. Gotta catch ’em all!
