Pokemon fans, we all want nothing more than a real life Pikachu to be our walking companion, fight our battles, and, most importantly, be there for snuggling. Pika snuggles are the best, most electrifying of snuggles.
Until we catch ‘em all, we can count on The Pokémon Company to make our plush dreams come true, because next week they are launching a limited edition line of Pikachu pillows and merch.
These furry Pikachu come in both male and female versions, the latter differentiated by eyelashes and flowers behind the ears. Merchandise includes fun keychains to hang from your backpack or purse, and slippers (because fuzzy Pikachu slippers are a must). And an “oversized” plush.
No joke, these Pikachu are enormous at over two feet tall, the pillows are twice the size of a normal Pikachu! I guess now we know what happens when you feed them after midnight. Those dimensions don’t even include Pika’s long ears, adding another foot to the height.
This huggable Pocket Monster is no longer pocket-sized but you still can’t help but squeeze it to your heart’s content. Only 100 of these Pokemon pillows will be produced and will cost $70 for the pair. Sorry, Pokémon trainers, these sweet things will only be sold in Japan. But if being a Pokémon Master is truly your destiny, I’m sure you’ll find a way to catch one of these exclusive pillows for yourself.
Would you buy a giant Pikachu pillow? Where would you put it? Let us know in the comments… I think I’d use mine to drive in the carpool lane.
