While it could be debated that the worldwide love for Funko Pops is waning, the love of all things Pokémon certainly isn’t. This week sees The Pokémon Company International and Funko, Inc. reveal the first in a new line of pearlescent finish models. Starting with Pikachu, the first Pokémon pearlescent pops are available now.
The all-new collection of Pokémon Pops! with their nice shiny finish comes packaged in an iridescent box, adding an extra touch of uniqueness. Only available through the Pokémon Centre in the US, Canada and UK, the Pikachu Pearlescent Pop! Figure by Funko retails for $19.99 USD/£12.99 GBP. Although, at the time of writing all the stores are currently sold out.
“The partnership between Pokémon and Funko is treasured by the dedicated fan communities for both brands,” said Cindy Ruppenthal, senior director of Pokémon Center and e-commerce at The Pokémon Company International in a statement. “We’re eager to continue providing fans with unique Pokémon figures, and the pearlescent finish is a wonderful way to introduce Funko’s Pops! to Pokémon’s avid fans.”
As mentioned, the collection will be expanded upon later in the year. So you’ll have to be quick if you want to grab the Pokémon pearlescent pops for your collection.
It may seem natural to start the collection with Pikachu. However, the most popular Pokémon of 2022 wasn’t the electric yellow ball of lightning. Also, take a look at the most popular Pokemon around the world.
