Poor lil guys look terrified

Several performers in Pikachu costumes took the streets of Seoul, South Korea today to celebrate the country's first Pokémon world champion. Then things went awry.

Following Se Jun Park's victory at the 2014 Pokémon Video Game World Championship in August, eight parades were scheduled to take place this weekend in Dongdaemun Design Plaza.

It didn't go quite as planned, though. Crowds flooded the square, causing safety concerns and some of the remaining shows to be cancelled.
