From H&M (Henneth & Maurits Japan), comes the most adorable collaboration with Pokemon. Even after over 20 years, Pokemon is still one of the most popular franchises for not just kids but for adults as well. This collection is now available at H&M DIVIDED, Kids, Men’s stores and official online stores nationwide.
What’s awesome about this collaboration is that it’s also to celebrate the release of the movie “Detective Pikachu”.
Pokemon have appeared in video games, TV shows and movies and now in real world fashion. There are a lot of menswear and womenswear in street styles featuring the face of Pokemon – Pikachu. Like this one in a inazuma pattern.
There’s even a kids’ collection!
The Pokemon featured include Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Eevee, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Snorlax and more popular characters.
To commemorate this collab and the release of Detective Pikachu, H&M has some window decorations on the store front. There was also a lottery for the first 30 H&M Members to receive this very fluffy and cute Detective Pikachu plush!
So what’s Detective Pikachu about?
Tim (Justice Smith), was a boy who loved Pokemon until his mom passed away and his ace detective dad, Harry, went missing. It was assumed he was dead.
He travels to Ryme City, a city where humans and Pokemon coexist, to find out more about his dad. It’s there that Tim encounters a detective Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds), who speaks human language and that only he can hear.
The detective Pikachu, who used to be Harry’s buddy, had lost his memories of the incident, but had only one conviction. “Harry is still alive.” Why did Harry disappear? What is the mystery of the incident that takes place in Ryme City?
