Converse has unveiled an exciting line of merchandise that celebrate Pokemon’s 25th anniversary, including themed Chucks, shirts, hats, backpacks and more.
There are currently 14 products available on Converse.com and while many of them are already sold out because of course they are, there are still a few ready for purchase. Hopefully there will be restocks as there are items here that will surely help make anyone the best they’ve ever been.
Converse x Pokemon 25th Anniversary Merchandise
The first shoe featured is the Converse x Pokemon Poke Ball Chuck Taylor All Star and it sells for a suggested price of $70 USD. It’s a white shoe that has Poke Ball ankle patches and black and white images of Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Meowth, and Jigglypuff all over it.
For those looking for a black shoe, the Converse x Pokemon First Partners Chuck Taylor All Star is for you. These have the same Pokémon as the other Chucks, but this time they are in color. They will also cost US$70.
In addition to the kids’ version of the previous shoes, young trainers will also be happy to know that there are adorable Pikachu and Jigglypuff shoes that cost $40 and will have many wishing they had bigger sizes for them.
There’s also a Pikachu hat and shirt, sweater and hoodie, and even a Pikachu-themed backpack.
All of these items will help trainers celebrate Pokemon’s 25th anniversary and they come just weeks before the release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus on the Nintendo Switch and take Pokemon in a new and exciting direction.
