Luchadora Pikachu is the Ronda Rousey of Pokemon

Pokken Tournament, the 3D Pokemon fighting game from Bandai Namco Entertainment, is bringing a little surprise to console gamers when it hits Wii U in spring of 2016: a Pikachu wearing a luchador costume with wrestling combat maneuvers to match.

Wait, no, I'm sorry. That's wrong. The tail makes a heart shape - the mark of a female Pikachu. This isn't a luchador, it's a luchadora, and she looks positively badass as she effortlessly wallops on her opponents like a tiny, furrier version of UFC fighter Ronda Rousey. Take a look:

Rousey declared in a Reddit AMA last month that her favorite Pokemon is Mew. Maybe she'll rethink her position in light of seeing this electric mouse take on a four-armed muscle monster?
