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.
The Adidas Originals x Pokémon Campus sneaker released earlier this year featuring the Pikachu was so popular that the two companies have partnered again to release a new shoe with the franchise’s star, but in 8-bit form. Featuring a fresh white leather upper, along with Three Stripes perforations on the medial and lateral sides.
For those who aren’t into Pokémon, the Pokédex is basically an electronic device designed to catalogue and provide information about the different Pokémon species found in the video game, anime and manga series. In the games, whenever a Pokémon is first captured, its data is added to a player’s Pokédex. While you won’t be able to obtain one of these devices in real-life, Premium Bandai might have the next best thing for iPhone owners.
