Union J change their name to Union XY and dress up as Pikachu!

Union J

union-j-beautiful-lifeHey, it’s Sean here from Weekend Breakfast on Fun Kids.

Usually when I see a letter from the Fun Kids bosses, I think “Oh No, What have Dennis & Gnasher done this time?” But this letter was a lot more pleasant!

It was an invitation to a secret meeting hosted by Union J.

It was all very mysterious and I had no idea what was going on until Union J arrived at the meeting dressed in rather fetching Pikachu onesies.

I never knew this but Union J are massive Pokemon fans. Josh plays Pokemon games on the toilet, and JJ even told a story how they missed a soundcheck on the X Factor live shows as Josh had gone missing… he was hidden in the toilets trying to catch ’em all!


We then learnt that they’d gathered us all to the secret meeting for a HUGE announcement! You see Union J love Pokemon so much, they’re going to change their name!

They’re changing it to Union XY after the brand new Pokemon game for the 3DS Pokemon X & Pokemon Y.

I don’t think anyone saw that coming! I certainly didn’t. I almost dropped my Bulbasaur notebook in surprise!

Who knows what’s next? Are they going to appear in the game’s advert? Could they end up in a Pokemon episode? Or will they release a Pokemon song?
