Japan‘s Kagawa Prefecture is celebrating its official Pokémon ambassador Slowpoke with a series of commemorative releases.

Jokingly called the “Yadon Prefecture” — a play on “‘udon prefecture” as Kagawa is known for its Sanuki udon and Slowpoke’s Japanese name is Yadon — a series of items will be released. The items include an udon Yadon Keychain and Brooch, local Kagawa Prefecture Slowpoke Oidemai Rice, Galarian Region Slowpoke Curry Udon, and Slowpoke and Galarian Slowpoke Grounded Chilli Spice.

On top of being available in-store at official Pokémon Centers, fans can also purchase the goods via a Slowpoke x Kagawa Prefecture special vending machine starting from March 19. These vending machines can be found at Shikoku Store 88 locations. For those that don’t live in Japan, here’s a video of Slowpoke being appointed governor to “Yadon Prefecture” below.
