Club careerEdit

PaysanduEdit

Born in Belém, Pará, Yago Pikachu joined Paysandu's youth setup in 2005 at the age of 13, after starting it out at Tuna Luso.[1] He earned the nickname Pikachu for his short stature and speed. After being promoted to the main squad, he made his senior debut on 14 January 2012, starting in a 1–2 Campeonato Paraense home loss against Cametá.[2]

Yago Pikachu scored his first senior goal on 25 January, netting the first in a 1–2 away loss against Águia de Marabá.[3] He finished the tournament with four goals, and also scored regularly in the year's Série C, as his side returned to Série B after six years.

Yago Pikachu made his debut in the second division on 25 May 2013, starting in a 1–1 home draw against ASA.[4] He scored his first goal in the category six days later, netting the first against América-RN which ended in the same scoreline.[5]

Despite scoring nine goals, Yago Pikachu could not avoid his team's relegation as it finished 18th. He again helped the side in its promotion the following year, contributing with four goals in 22 matches.

On 12 June 2015 Yago Pikachu scored an olympic goal in a 2–0 away win against ABC.[6] He completed 200 games for Paysandu on 15 August, but in a 3–1 home win against Oeste.[7]

Vasco da GamaEdit

On 16 December 2015, Yago Pikachu signed a three-year deal with fellow second tier club Vasco da Gama.[8] Mainly used as a substitute in the midfield during the year, he contributed with three goals in 27 matches as his side achieved promotion to Série A.

Yago Pikachu made his top tier debut on 14 May 2017, starting in a 4–0 away loss against Palmeiras. Seven days later he scored his first goal in the division, netting the opener in a 2–0 home win against Bahia. He completed the 2017 season with two goals in 27 games.
