The moasic consists of 12,987 individual Pokémon cards.

The Pokémon Company International has partnered with British artist Quentin Devine to create the world’s largest trading card mosaic.

Devine is an artist known for creating giant mosiacs and this creation consists of 12,987 individual Pokémon Trading Card Game cards and measures 71.54 square metres.

The finished mosaic, hanging at over 10 metres tall and 7 metres wide, was unveiled in Paris and forms the image of Pikachu, using the original iconic pose drawn by Game Freak illustrator Ken Sugimori.

“We are incredibly excited to have secured this highly ambitious world record, and are thrilled to have worked with renowned artist Quentin Devine to bring the mosaic to life," said Anthony Cornish, marketing director for The Pokémon Company International.
