SCP-XXXX at the time of its retrieval.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in a standard Euclid containment cell at Site 76, which has been converted into the sleeping quarters of D-114602. SCP-XXXX should not be removed from its chamber unless authorized by personnel with at least Level 3 clearance.

Procedure 96-Sebastian is to be performed every day at exactly 2100 hours by the D-Class assigned to SCP-XXXX (currently D-114602). If the procedure is not performed or otherwise fails to stop an SCP-XXXX-1 event from occurring, MTF Gamma-5 “Red Herrings” is to be dispatched to suppress civilian knowledge of the event.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a medium-sized plush toy weighing ~0.7 kg. It resembles the character Pikachu, an animated yellow mouse prevalent in games, merchandising, and other media distributed by The Pokemon Company. The manufacturer of SCP-XXXX is unknown.

Every day between the hours of 0030 and 0130, SCP-XXXX will create an SCP-XXXX-1 event. It is unknown how SCP-XXXX accomplishes this. These events always follow a similar pattern, described below:

  1. Events will begin with the formation of a cloud of ethyl alcohol 1800-2000 meters above the location of SCP-XXXX. The cloud will usually be 0.8 km in diameter.
  2. 10-15 minutes after it fully forms, the cloud begins to precipitate human blood.
  3. The cloud continues to precipitate blood for 45-70 minutes, at which point the cloud gradually dissipates1.

SCP-XXXX-1 events can only be contained through a special procedure codenamed Procedure 96-Sebastian. This procedure can only be carried out by males between the ages of 7 and 11 This procedure is to be carried out by D-114602, an African-American male of smaller build aged thirteen at the time of writing. If D-114602 is somehow unable to carry out Procedure 96-Sebastian, personnel are authorized to use any male child between the ages of 7 and 11 so long as it doesn’t interfere with other containment procedures.

Procedure 96-Sebastian is to be carried out in the following instructions:

  1. D-114602 (or the otherwise assigned D-Class) is to carry SCP-XXXX to his bed in SCP-XXXX’s containment chamber.
  2. D-114602 gets into his bed, and shuts off the light in the cell.
  3. D-114602 says the phrase, “Goodnight, Pikachu. I love you.”2

Addendum XXXX.1
D-114602 has been used to carry out Procedure 96-Sebastian for three years. While it is unsure whether SCP-XXXX is sentient, this may be the reason why D-114602 can complete the procedure while other persons over the age of twelve cannot. SCP-XXXX may have grown attached to D-114602. What this means for containment in the future is unknown, as an SCP-XXXX-1 event has not occurred since the implementation of Procedure 96-Sebastian. If D-114602 were to die or be rendered unable to carry out the procedure, SCP-XXXX may refuse to allow other children to carry out the procedure, or even worsen the effects of an SCP-XXXX-1 event. While this theory is unconfirmed, it is best to ensure D-114602 is especially protected from containment breaches or other dangerous hazards.

Addendum XXXX.2:
SCP-XXXX was initially found in ███████ █████, a small town in northwestern Nebraska. MTF Gamma-5 “Red Herrings” and several other agents were investigating reports of “blood rain” over the town. After evacuating the area and ensuring informational integrity of the event, it took the Foundation six days to discover the source of the anomalous cloud. Investigation into why SCP-XXXX was causing the events led to the following interview between the previous owner of SCP-XXXX, a 36 year old female named Jo Ann Garsley, and Dr. Wallace Bishop, previous head researcher of SCP-XXXX and divisor of Procedure 96-Sebastian.

Based on information gathered from this interview, Dr Bishop created Procedure 96-Sebastian, and tested it using D-114602. After proving Procedure 96-Sebastian’s effectiveness at containing SCP-XXXX, the SCP was moved to Site 76, the town of ███████ █████ was cleaned of blood, and the residents were allowed to return home.
