Just about anyone would want a companion Pokémon to call their own, but the affectionately nicknamed "Puppy Pokémon" Yamper is likely at the top of many lists. While that's true for most humans, it's especially true for an adorable corgi named named Mugi @corgi_mugi) who lives in Japan. Yamper is sometimes compared to corgis in terms of appearance (and temperament), so Mugi's owners decided to gift their pupper with a popular Yamper plushie for his 2nd birthday.

As you can see, Mugi was more than happy to welcome his new Pokémon doppelganger!

Love at first bite!

A longer video below shows the start of their budding friendship.
