Samsung has just announced a new charging case for their Galaxy Buds earbuds: A replica of the Poké Ball, complete with a sticker of a Pokémon to decorate the case with.

Sadly, this special limited edition charging case is only available in South Korea for the time being, and it's picey, too. The case is listed on Samsung's Korean website for 134,000 won, which is roughly $105 / £85 — a little over half what the earbuds (with case) themselves cost, at 219,000 won ($170 / £138).

Earlier this year, Samsung also released a limited-edition Pokémon-themed Galaxy Z Flip 3, which is one of those phones that folds in half. The Poké-phone was also only available in South Korea, and is no longer being sold on the website. It came with a bunch of accessories, though, from a Pikachu keyring and a Poké Ball stand to pre-installed Pokémon ringtones.

Back to the earbuds case for now, though: The stickers that you can get with the case are chosen at random, and you will get one of the following:

  • Pikachu
  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Jigglypuff
  • Ditto
  • Dragonite
  • Lapras
  • Eevee
  • Gengar
  • Mew (holographic)

If you fancy trying to grab one of these for yourself, good luck — but here's the link to Samsung's website, which currently says it's "out of stock" and "being prepared".
