You may get inside this Pokémon Gengar pillow

2021, proper? Who would have guessed?

Everybody. All of us guessed. We’re solely eight days into the brand new yr, and yep, issues are nonetheless horrible. I need to go crawl right into a gap. Specifically, a mouth-shaped gap that’s connected to a big, purple pocket monster with glowing crimson eyes. And by golly, it seems like different folks need to try this, too.

It’s simply our luck, then, that The Pokémon Firm and P-Bandai have introduced a brand new, good piece of Pokémon merchandise: the Gengar cushion, which has house to your head to relaxation proper contained in the mouth — which is actually a portal to hell — and a pink, cushiony pillow of a tongue to put on. The tongue is simply round 5 ft, 5 inches lengthy, so for me, not less than, I can use somewhat little bit of tongue to cowl my toes. (I’m partly regretting typing this.) For straightforward storage, the tongue may be rolled up and stuffed again into Gengar’s mouth.

Frankly, I’m stunned nobody had considered this earlier than. Sadly for many of us, it’s already offered out on the P-Bandai web site, regardless of costing virtually $300. In accordance with Pokeshopper, a web site that tracks Pokémon merchandise, the Gengar cushion offered out in simply over an hour. It’s unclear if P-Bandai will over one other wave of pre-orders, sadly.

The Gengar pillow is totally harking back to Gengar’s Gigantamax type from Pokémon Sword and Defend. It’s on this type the place his mouth takes over most of his physique., as famous within the Pokédex:

Rumor has it that its gigantic mouth leads not into its physique, crammed with cursed power, however as an alternative straight into the afterlife. It lays traps, hoping to steal the lives of these it catches. For those who stand in entrance of its mouth, you’ll hear your family members’ voices calling out to you.

The opposite factor about Gengar is that, in response to Pokémon lore, Gengar was as soon as a human. In Pokémon Moon, Gengar’s Pokédex entry talks concerning the creepy cutie’s need for a “touring companion,” which is what it’s making an attempt to do by “taking the lives of different people.”

Man, Pokémon are cool.

Anyway, it’s clear that I’m not the one one who’d wish to crawl into Gengar’s heat abyss. The web can also be very intrigued by the prospect. Individuals are making memes and fanart for the piece of merchandise.

It’s an identical response that individuals on the web needed to one other piece of Pokémon merchandise, the Metapod sleeping bag. P-Bandai additionally produced that good real-life cocoon to wrap up inside. If there’s one factor that P-Bandai does proper, it’s understanding what the folks need.
