We always knew the little critter had it in him, but what other Pokemon characters' powers would you like to see recreated scientifically?
Also, if any of you Bill Nye types want to explain the workings of Tesla coils, go right ahead.

Next up: have someone fire a Hadoken.
It can be done! Just crouch...crouch forward...walk a little bit...and punch.

I'd rather not see any fire types. Water types are good though.

That was cool.
Pokemon is a cool game. As is Pikachu. So cute.

The electric part of Pikachu is it's red circles on its cheeks; not its eyes.

Bill Nye moment: It's a tiny Van der Graaff generator! It basically generates crazy static electricity by bringing only positive charges to the top via a rubber belt (that's what the whirring noise is). It decharges just like a person touching a doorknob on a dry day or a storm cloud during lightning storm. It can also light up unconnected fluorescent tubes at a short distance (which I think is the coolest thing ever). ...And this is coming from an art major ;-).
Now let's see Razor Leaf at work...

Well, charmander and squirtle should be easy enough to recreate (although, you'd have to be damn careful not to incinerate the charmander plushie). You could might be able to do vinewhip as well, by growing a fast growing vine in a bulba/ivysaur's bulb, and then using a camera taking a shot every hour and a variable light source, see the plant "move" via phototropism
