Snapchat has plenty of filters, from the licking dog to the flower crown. But now, they have teamed up with the Pokemon Company to turn people into Pikachu with its latest Pokemon filter. This new filter will feature Pikachu;s ears, nose, and electrically-charged cheeks on the user’s face.

Hey, it even lets the user do Pikachu’s signature Thunderbolt attack, and even some sound effects! However, this feature will only be available for a limited time, until August 16 in fact. So if you want to become a Pikachu on Snapchat, better take them while you can.

So yeah, for a limited time, expect to see social media posts of people getting turned into Pikachu in their selfies because this is Snapchat after all.
