Fans who grew up watching and playing Pokemon might not admit it, but the Japanese media franchise is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Yes, that means you and I are old.
But hey, Pokemon means a lot to many. For many hardcore fans, this is probably their life. From television to gaming console and now smartphones, Pikachu and the gang have truly captured the hearts of many children at heart.
Happy 25th Anniversary Pokemon!
It’s worthy of celebrating Pokemon’s 25th anniversary and so Converse wants to join the party by releasing a special collection. Converse always collaborates with big names. The most recent ones we featured were with Chaos Fishing Club, NBA Jam, and Space Jam.
The Pokemon and Converse collaborative collection includes a few pairs and a special-edition hoodie. The base silhouette is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star.
