Friday Pokemon Announcements – Varsity Pikachu + 5108 Necklaces

Here I am, right on time!

Today’s announcements were sparse for merch, but hope is not lost as Pokemon threw us a small bone.

Varsity Pikachu goods! The theme is based on a sort of Japanese “vintage” view of American universities, and the merchandise has a semi scholary feel to it, with a bunch of notebooks, folders, pens, and of course, the Pikachu varsity jacket. Not only can you buy a little Pikachu plush wearing one, but you can buy a human sized version of the jacket and match!

The Varsity Pikachu promotion comes out December 10th at all Pokemon Centers and Stores around Japan.

For fun, here is a small announcement from last week. These necklaces are a collaboration between Pokemon and 5108. The 5108 name is pronounced “kotoba“, meaning “word” or “phrase” in Japanese. This is not a coincidence as the company specializes in necklaces with charms that are words or phrases, in English, Japanese, and French (among other languages). These necklaces of course will have a Pokemon flair to them. (Check out the 5108 official website for more examples of their work!)

The Pokemon collaboration necklaces will go on sale starting December 3rd at all Pokemon Stores and Centers in Japan. Each necklace costs 4,104 yen.

There are 22 necklaces as part of this set, so instead of listing all of them, here are a couple of my personal favorites.

  1. Hi,
    Where can the jackets be purchased? I am in the US and this would be a great Christmas gift.
