Pokémon Fans Rejoice! Build-A-Bear Workshop Has Added Charmander

Get out your wallets and you Pokédex (Pokédexes? Pokédexi? Pokédexis?) because you can now bring home and cuddle a version of everyone’s favorite fire-type pokémon that’s considerably cheaper and more humane than previous attempts involving constant pet shop bills and kerosene.

As brought to our attention from a post on Polygon, Build-A-Bear Workshop have added two Pokémon to their online shop. They’ve had Pikachu available for some time now, but you can start adding to your collection with the Eevee and their new Charmander set. What makes it a set, you ask? Each exclusive Build-A-Poké-Bear comes with a number of accessories including a Great Ball Hoodie, a Lucario Hoodie and a Build-A-Bear Workshop exclusive Pokémon TCG card.pokeduo121016

Somehow, Pokémon dressed as other Pokémon multiplies their cuteness levels beyond comprehension and is, in our opinion, a stroke of design genius. It seems, whether intentional or not, the marketing is pretty slick as well, having given the Charizard Hoodie only to the Pikachu exclusive. This means fans itching to have their cuddly Charmander evolve into an even cuter Charizard will force them to purchase both sets. Though there are certainly worse things than having more things to hug. Like, for instance, the fact that enough people inquired about ordering empty Charmander skin that they had to add “This item cannot be purchased unstuffed” to the description.

It’s probably safe to assume the Build-A-Bear Workshop isn’t done with their Poké-bears and will only be adding to the roster. Which Pokémon would you like to see in the future and with what accessories? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
