Pokemon Collab Blesses Us With This Retro Pikachu Anniversary Watch
In time for the Pokemon anniversary is a lovely Casio Pikachu themed watch, featuring both the beloved mouse and 25 references all over.
It’s the 25th anniversary of the Pokemon franchise, as well as longtime mascot Pikachu’s Pokedex entry number. So what do you do? Collaborate with Japanese watch brand BABY-G and create a stylish and retro-themed Pikachu watch of course!
Both the images and video above showcases the Casio watch in all its nerdy glory. For instance Pikachu’s Red/Blue/Yellow version sprite art is prominently displayed on the watch face, beneath the digital face with the backlight on, and on the back of the watch. The number 25 is also referenced throughout the watch design.
The watch will be available from November 2019 through their online store for 13,000 yen (US$121) and comes in a special Pokéball case. And if you’re into more Pokemon themed clothing and fashion, check out this official shirt line from the Pokemon Company.

There are two other trailers for the game as well. The first showed off Team Yell, new Pokemon forms and evolutions, a new Pokemon, and new rivals. The second showcased more gameplay, new abilities, moves, and held items.
