In the Pokemon series, Garchomp is essentially a bipedal velociraptor / hammerhead shark-like creature. This doesn’t sound like it would make for a comfortable napping companion, but turn it into a life-sized plush that measures 160cm, or 5’2″, and it’s an entirely different story.
Brando Workshop’s Pikachu Wireless Mouse has a 3D design that actually looks like a miniature version of the game’s character, but unfortunately, it doesn’t come inside a Poké Ball. Before you ask, yes, this is an officially licensed Pokémon product.
Many investors are diversifying their portfolios with trading cards, and that has caused Pokemon TCG (Trading Card Game) to sky rocket in value. One such example of a high-valued card is this Blastoise #009/165R Commissioned Presentation Galaxy Star Holo, which is just one of two that exist in the world. It’s actually a commission by Wizards of the Coast in mid-1998 to Belguim-based Cartamundi to print these cards to show Nintendo for possible approval to begin printing Pokémon cards in English.
Gengar first appeared in Pokémon Red and Blue before showing up in subsequent sequels, spin-off games, related merchandise, and animated as well as print versions of the franchise. Most of the merchandise is your standard action figure or plush, but Premium Bandai’s Gengar “Sleeping Companion” plush actually has a tongue large enough for you to sleep on. In the game, Gengar can lick victims with its tongue and paralyze them, although that ability won’t quite work with this plush.
So we know that Pikachu refers to a species of Pokémon that are basically yellow rodent-like creatures with powerful electrical abilities. It made its first appearance in Pokémon Red and Green in Japan. Today, Pokémon Air was unveiled, and it’s a Pikachu toy unlike any other. Think of it as a rubber creature that you can ride around or lounge on, and it supports up to 220-pounds without any issues. There are no wheels, so you’ll have to put your hopping skills to the test if you choose the former.
