Just this year, we’ve seen Pokémon collaborations in the form of Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Thunderbolt Project and Nigo’s Uniqlo UT collection. But it doesn’t end there. Pokémon and fashion converge once again in the latest collaboration between Japanese retailer Beams and the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The collection is filled with t-shirts that incorporate your favorite Pokémon like Pikachu, Eevee, Mewtwo, and Charizard. These graphics emulate the kind of sleek designs found on Pokemon GX playing cards.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a full capsule collection without accessories. The collection thus includes items like playmats, insulated bottles, caps, and pins. What’s more, to make this collaboration even more special, the two have teamed up for an exclusive Pikachu promo card. This card features a “Beams Exclusive” logo and would be presented to customers who spend at least ¥2,400 (approx. S$30) on the collection.
The Beams x Pokémon Trading Card Game collection is set for release on August 3 at the Beams Harajuku store. This is followed by a wider release on August 6 at Pokémon Center’s physical and online stores. Prices in this collection range from ¥500 (approx. S$6) for the pins to ¥4,300 (approx. S$54) for some of the tees.
Which of these Pokémon t-shirts do you see yourself rocking? Let us know in the comments section below.
