If you thought your favorite Pokémon was exempt from bad hair days, you were wrong. Just look at Pikachu, who is rocking some serious bangs right now — and fans of the anime series are less than thrilled by his makeover. The new look was revealed in the trailer for Nintendo Switch's Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, where a feature allows users to customize Pikachu and Evee's hair. You can also create matching outfits, but that's another conversation.

So many theories surround Pikachu's unfortunate bangs — was he inspired by Beyoncé? Did he just go through a major breakup and need a change? Whatever the reason, fans are hoping Pikachu's bangs grow out sooner rather than later (but we all know how long that can take). 

More importantly, Pokémon loyalists just want to know who is responsible for the drastic cut. "I just wanna know who's responsible for giving Pikachu terf bangs," one concerned fan tweeted before another added, "Who is responsible for this? Isn’t life hard enough for you bad people?" 

But seriously, there is no excuse for ever giving Pikachu, or Evee for that matter, bangs, Switch users. You've been warned.

Back to those theories. Fans are convinced someone broke Pikachu's heart, prompting the spontaneous trim.
