It’s been reported by Crunchyroll that two well known Shonen Jump manga authors have become friends from Pokemon GO and how the game changed their habits. In a tweet, it’s revealed that it was My Hero Academia author Kohei Horikoshi who befriended One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda. In a tweet, Horikoshi said after he befriended Oda sensei in Pokemon Go, he got inspired to take walks out of his office and take up exercising more for his free time. In his tweet, he sketched out one of the characters from his series. The sketch shows Mina Ashido playing Pokemon GO on her phone.

One Piece x Pokemon Go collab?

This is an odd collaboration, but then again, this is Japan we are talking about and it’s pretty common to see collaborations like this. It’s been announced today that there is plans of a Pokemon Go and One Piece collaboration. From July 22 to 29, players who are playing Pokemon Go will get exclusive items referencing the manga/anime series One Piece. If fortunate, players will be able to catch a Pikachu wearing a Straw Hat and players will also be able to wear Luffy’s iconic straw hat. I am not sure if it’s only going to be Japanese exclusive, but based on sources, it doesn’t say anything that anywhere it’s excluded. If it’s global, it is good news for us.
