Pokémon has given us some pretty incredible consumer products in recent years, such as a Snorlax plush which is literally large enough to sleep on.
The company that created that particular dream product, Premium Bandai, is back with yet another Pocket Monster-related plush that we didn't know we needed: the Gengar "Sleeping Companion."
The idea here is that you rest your head inside Gengar's mouth and roll out his 5.5-foot long tongue to lie on (or wrap yourself in, if you'd prefer). As you can see from the promotional images, the applications for this product are seemingly endless.
It's expecting to launch around June time in Japan, and will cost 25,950 yen (around £183 / $250). As the Google-translated product page so eloquently puts it:
Are sleeping in the tongue of Gengar!? Gengar is finally here!! You want absolutely licked... into Gengar of the mouth while sleeping on the Gengar tongue!! About to be licked Now everyone in Gengar.

Hahaha what the actual fug. XD
Only in Japan, really. Just the kind of silliness needed for a stupid smile right now.
The Japanese know how to have fun in other ways as well!
It is not only schoolgirls and octopuses!
A Pikachu plug with a strange cable placement, a Gengar bed, what's next?
The subtitle should have read "Check out that Gengargantuan tongue!"
And you call yourselves writers?! Tsk, tsk, tsk. 😜
But I never knew that I needed Gengar's tongue so badly. 💀
King boo or Boo versions would have me tempted haha
"Rumor has it that its gigantic mouth leads not into its body, filled with cursed energy, but instead directly to the afterlife. "
Wasn't there a similar product but for Kirby?
Found it. Which Nintendo/Pokemon character do you want to be eaten by next I guess?
@MS7000 : Why, the lickiest Nintendo characters of all: Lickitung and Lickilicky.
Truly, now everyone in Gengar.
Do this was a lickitung in life one can assume? Also everyone in gengar.
“About to be licked Now everyone in Gengar.”
This is my favourite Arnold Schwarzenegger quote.
Hahaha £183 wft...
@MS7000 Well remembered, at least it cost only £65 this one is £183.
@Mince I am guessing Gengar's mouth is in higher demand, hence the premium...
Just realised how unfortunate that sounds.
Hahaha I LOVE this! My boyfriend is Pokemon obsessed and is always tired at work! Hilarious
Does it come in Lickitung?
Seriously though how uncomfortable does that look
For all your vore needs.
Semi-Disgusting but also lmao. Who would put their head in Gengars mouth?
I'm so jealous of japan. Taking a short nap on a 45 min lunch break is still taboo in the US.
In fairness, not working so much that you're literally falling asleep at your desk after 16 hours shifts is pretty taboo in Japan ... so glass half full?
@HeadPirate fair point.
I know the holidays are hard, Japanese salary man, but you have so much to live for!
I thought nothing would top the Sleepapod.
I was gloriously wrong!
Of course we all sleep slumped face down on our desks draped over a chair. In no way would people think we were dead when we did this, especially lolling on the tongue of a ghost Pokemon.
What happens when Gengar uses Dream Eater?
Do you wake up, or does your mind just become a blank void?
This looks so strange and silly. LOL.
This is ridiculous
I'll take 20
These manufacturers really understand the driving forces of Pokemon fans.
I am in for a permanent Snorlax couch too and a Jiglypuff bed.
@KingMike you finally become able to rest while Gengar eats all your anxieties and nightmares.
imagine if it was a toad house with a carpet as the tounge
@Eel youve convinced me. I wanna get it now
Oh my god, this is amazing.
I remember I saw a Kirby one and honestly, I still want it so badly I'm gonna buy it one day
I will spend the next six months getting my kids into Pokemon just so I can make them – by which I mean “kindly let them” – sleep with these as their only beds. £180 for a teddy bear is stupid. £180 for a bed is not out of the question.
OK, x2 is getting pricey. They may have to share.
I’m sticking with this plan.
the first image on the top left is like "Please just end it now Gengar" XD
What in the world? And that translation description sounded uh...yeah
@Yosher seems cute but it just highlights the problem Japan has with its overwork based culture.
This will be great to have, but I might just get laughed at.
This is comedy gold right here, lmao.
