Build-a-Bear Workshop has offered kids the chance to make their own fun (and stuff animal companions) for decades, and while popular Pokemon characters like Pikachu and Charmander were offered previously, the next pocket monster to make at Build-a-Bear will be Squirtle.

In a report from WWG, Build-a-Bear Workshop has announced that Squirtle will be the next plush Pokemon to head to the popular series of retailers in the company’s collaboration with The Pokemon Company, following Pikachu, Eevee, and Charmander.

Squirtle will be available at Build-a-Bear Workshop locations and online starting on June 1, while the plush doll will also come with a special, limited-edition Pokemon Trading Card Game card featuring the Build-a-Bear logo.

Aside from the plush, two outfit options will also be available for Squirtle, including an Ultra Ball Hoodie that will be available in stores, and a special PokeBall slicker that will only be available online from Build-a-Bear’s website. An online-exclusive set will also be available featuring the doll, both outfits, the Trading Card, and a special 6-in-1 soundchip that features various Squirtle sounds and phrases.

The Squirtle plush by itself will cost $28, while the Deluxe Edition set featuring all of the above items will retail for $60. The Ultra Ball Hoodie will also be sold separately for $10.50. For a closer look at Squirtle and his numerous stylish outfits, you can check out the image gallery below:
