Pokemon Shirts

Finding clothing based on your favourite video game franchises, especially ones like Pokémon, isn't always easy as an adult, especially when most designs available can be a little childish or in your face in nature. This new line of shirts could be just the thing you've been looking for, though, and orders are opening very soon indeed.

The designs have been created thanks to a partnership between The Pokemon Company and Original Stitch; the range goes by the remarkably apt name of 'Pokémon Shirts'. Eventually, 151 designs will be available - coinciding with each of the original Kanto Pokémon - but the range will start with just a chosen 20.

Those 20 will be part of a special pre-order window next week from 26th - 28th January; the true release is actually scheduled for February. You can check out all 20 of these designs at the official site - the usual fan favourites like Pikachu, Eevee, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle all appear. It's currently unclear whether or not the shirts will ship outside of Japan - western buyers may well have to find extravagant import solutions - so fingers crossed we're treated to some options.

The Pokémon Company has shared an advert for the shirts, once again poking at your nostalgia to make you splash out your real life Poké Dollars. It's surprisingly epic, to tell the truth, and well worth a watch.
