You don't have to trek into the closest urban area to capture a Meowth. Nah, Build-A-Bear has made tracking the feline Pokémon simple by adding a plush of the creature to their line of pocket monster toys. Meowth is the fifth Pokémon to join Build-A-Bear's line; they already offer Squirtle, Pikachu, Eevee, and Charmander. All of these very real and very huggable toys mean you can stage a real-life version of Pokémon GO around your home--just make sure you use plush Poké Balls to avoid breaking any of your valuables.
Build-A-Bear's Make-Your-Own Meowth plush is available in stores and online right meow. Besides getting a squishable version of the character, you can purchase outfits for it. Yes, outfits. Plural. What times we live in. You can dress Meowth in a Quick Ball hoodie or show off Meowth's allegiances with a Team Rocket hoodie, complete with silhouettes of Jesse and James. Prepare for trouble and make it double.
You can score your Meowth and an exclusive Pokémon TCG card over at the Build-A-Bear website. Note the Team Rocket hoodie is an online-only exclusive.
Will you be taking your Poké Ball to Build-A-Bear to try to catch 'em all? Head to the comments and let us know.
