Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, which occurs at completion of this month, is beginning to accelerate. While most statements aren’t anticipated up until Pokémon Day on February 27, we’re beginning to see a few of the statements and collaborations trickle out ahead of time. We already knew that Katy Perry and Post Malone were joining the celebration, but Levi’s is the latest to propose a toast to Pocket Monsters through an all-new collaboration.
The collection includes a wide array of products, including a Pikachu T-shirt (pictured above), a shirt featuring Ash and Misty from the anime, a trucker hat with the Levi’s branding in the shape of a Poké Ball, and various other Pikachu, Jigglypuff, and even Psyduck-emblazoned apparel. All of the merchandise is squarely focused on Gen 1, aside from a tiny picture of Togepi on the shirt meant to replicate Misty’s shirt.
You can see a few of the items on offer in the gallery below.
Oh. There’s also this.
The Levi’s x Pokémon collection is the latest in a long line of collaborations Levi’s has done. In the recent past, Levi’s has worked with brands like Peanuts, Star Wars, Stranger Things, Hello Kitty, and Super Mario.
While we’re still awaiting the full picture of what The Pokémon Company, Game Freak, Nintendo, and all their partners are planning for this year’s special Pokémon Day, you can check out our wishlist for the statements we’d most like to see come out of the 25th anniversary event. Pokémon Day happens on February 27, however the Levi’s x Pokémon collection is readily available now online and in shops.
