Castelia City Thanksgiving Day Parade by SeanDonnanArt Castelia City Thanksgiving Day Parade by SeanDonnanArt
I came up with the idea for this a year ago!! But didn't get around to it in time. So I planned it for a year!! XD This is a representation and accentuation of the parallels between New York City and Castelia City from Pokemon.

One of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It's been a tradition in my family to watch it every Thanksgiving morning. I've never been to the actual parade though. Hopefully some day! So I got to thinking about how I could make the Pokemon world feel more alive if I gave Unova this same holiday and bring the parade to Castelia. Happy Thanksgiving everybody!

P.S. I have no idea why but I ended up drawing Barack Obama on the right there. I wasn't planning on it, it just turned out to be him, so I left it in for fun. President of Unova? Wait, Obama doesn't have a son.... XD

this looks so real-life-ish that it's giving me such a surreal effect... o.o

Did you see the Pikachu float in the parade this year? It's cheeks sparked!
