Over the weekend, Britain’s long-running televised celebrity dance contest Strictly Come Dancing themed itself around the Movies, and one of the numbers performed was none other than the original Pokémon anime theme.

Performed as a Paso Doble by Paralympian Will Bayley and his dance partner Janette Manrara, dressed as Ash and Pikachu respectively. The Spanish dance typically has the male dancer perform akin to a bull matador, and the partner their cape, which is somewhat fitting to the Pokémon theme.

You can watch the performance below:

The dance didn’t perform too well with the judges, however, netting a few fives and sixes out of ten. The official UK Pokémon Twitter account at least joined in on the fun.

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
