As part of today's announcements about Pokemon's 25th anniversary celebration this year, the Pokemon Company International has revealed a slew of new merchandising programs and the like. That includes, but is not limited to, a new limited-edition 25th anniversary-themed Pokemon skateboard from Bear Walker that features brand mascot Pikachu. The board, which you can check out below, has the pocket monster front and center.
The new 25th anniversary skateboard is just the latest and greatest collaboration with Bear Walker. Previous Pokemon x Bear Walker skateboards have included designs featuring Mewtwo, Mew, Charizard, Gengar, and more. The new Pikachu skateboard is set to go up for pre-order over on Pokemon Center starting January 19th, and while no prices is explicitly mentioned on the website's listing as of yet, previous iterations have run $249.99 and sold out fast.
The #PokemonCenter is an important stop along any Trainer’s journey.

Merchandise isn't the only part of the 25th anniversary celebration, however, which also includes the likes of a Katy Perry collaboration of some kind. As far as the Pokemon video games go, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are currently available on the Nintendo Switch alongside the two DLC expansions, Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra.
