Pikachu and Olympic gold medallist, Usain Bolt are co-starring in a Pokemon ad together.

The Pokemon Company teamed up with, well, the fastest man in the world to appear in two ads for Pokemon Sun and Moon - the latest in the franchise's video game series.

In the video, Bolt is part of Team Skull and is introduced on screen with, "Team Skull's Bolt wants to battle!"

Bolt says, "Even in a Pokemon battle, I'm number one."

The famous athlete instructs Pikachu to use a Thunderbolt attack, which Pikachu does in sync with Bolt striking his signature pose.

What do you think of the video?
