For 25 years, Pokémon has entertained the masses with striking television seasons, addictive video games and playful product collaborations. And so to celebrate its quarter anniversary, it has teamed up with many a partner for collaborative collections, and now it’s welcoming Converse to the party. Together, the two entities have manufactured an assortment of footwear and apparel items that shine a light on the series’ original class of characters from the Kanto region.

In this assemblage, the footwear certainly leads the way as various iterations of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star are brought to life. First on the roster is the Pokémon x Converse Chuck Taylor All Star “First Partners” which is styled with a black canvas upper and comes decorated with images of Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Pikachu, Meowth and Jigglypuff. Next in line is the “Poké Ball” colorway which is presented with a white upper and all-over black and white graphics of the aforementioned cast. On the lateral walls, a Poké Ball is embedded into the shoe near the ankle collars.

Die-hard fans can also choose adventurous apparel items to add to their wardrobe here. The stand-out piece is the Pokémon 25th Celebration Hoodie which comes printed with “electrified” Converse and Pokémon graphics and “tour stops” from the world of Pokémon on the back side. Elsewhere in the apparel category you can find a sherpa-lined Jigglypuff crewneck, Pokémon Team and Pikachu tees and a range of accessories from backpacks to camp caps.

The Pokémon x Converse collection is slated to drop via Converse and other retailers come January 7.

In case you missed it, mastermind JAPAN and Converse just unveiled collaborative Jack Purcell GORE-TEX kicks.
