The 'Hunt for Pikachu' video has gone viral in all of its adorableness. The FinalCutKing YouTube account, hosted by Zach King, has produced one of the cutest homages to the Pokemon legacy yet. He and a friend go looking for a real-life Pikachu to capture as their own with their Pokeballs.

In the video, the Pikachu that they capture is actually an adorable little kitten, and with the help of a little editing and special effects, they give the little guy the ability to zap them to the ceiling. The cute kitten that plays Pikachu is colored to look like Pikachu in post-editing, so no dye was used and no animal harm was done, which makes the video especially awesome.
