The Pokémon Company has revealed a new line of merchandise that's sure to be a hit with fans, partly because it's all so darn adorable.
Interestingly enough, the range's theme is 'Pokémon who lost in battle', with each piece depicting a 'mon or two that appears to have fainted. It's a cute idea – just don't think about the fact that the poor things have just fought for you, lost, and have now been transformed into a pencil case.
The line will arrive at Japan's Pokémon Center on Saturday 30th October and international orders will be available from Pokémon's Amazon Japan store. Here's a quick look at what will be included:
No Pokémon merch will ever beat 2020's incredible Metapod cocoon, but we're definitely liking these new designs.

Spinda is just laying down
Gengar looks too pleased that it has fainted. 😆
Soooo Zombie merch?
That’s what happens when you go out drinking with Spinda.
Well…. that’s a bit morbid.
Spinda looks just like always
Spinda is always fainted.
Some others like scorbunny was late and running as hard as they can to get to where they were going.
I love how Spinda is actually the only one not being fainted!
Oh sweet, some Spinda merch
"Those Pokemon fainted in battle and you're laughing. You're laughing! A wild shiny Ditto got away because of what you did."
They either fainted, or Spinda just used teeter dance on them all.
I wonder if they will use x-eyes in the future to show of that they are fainted as well.
You look really cute when I punch the lights out of you...
Spinda was the Impostor
They haven't fainted, they just finished sharing a massive doobie.
I never in my wildest dreams would have considered that I had a dead Togekiss shaped hole in my life, but here we are.
I too like collecting dead Pokémon.
this is just hilarious
I’m not wasting my max revive on a Spinda.
That Scorbunny pencil case reminds me of an anatomical photo I saw in a science book at school.. only it was a rabbit & it was its lungs instead of pencils. =3
Really is pokemon abuse when you think about it.
Palkia used Spacial Rend!
"Fainted," yeah okay
Um... are they ok? Do we need to call nurse joy?
I make a lot of amigurumi, and dead/undead ones are always fun. I need to get back to doing this, actually. I haven't made one in a while.
"Not even the fully-evolved survived."
"Struck down not by a Water nor Fire attack, this Pokemon... By a Normal-type move, he was."
"Who?... Who could've done this?"
@Ryu_Niiyama There's a story here.
@Tempestryke I imagine it’s a rehash of the “A Night to Remember” quest from Skyrim.
Somebody trashed a pokecenter, Officer Jenny is missing a uniform, Gengar got engaged to the current gen Trainer’s mom, somebody freed a bunch of Wooloo. Just drunken chaos all around while Spinda is perfectly sober.
