Following the popular release of the Pichu, Pikachu and Raichu custom skateboard decks earlier this year, a new batch of designs have arrived. Created by Bear Walker, three new limited edition skateboard designs featuring the first partner Pokémon from Johto are now available.
While they may not be the most popular Pokemon around, Chikorita, Cyndaquil or Totodile do have fans. As the starter Pokémon from Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, all three are very well known. Each of these new skateboard decks features a built-in textured surface and natural wood accents designed to complement the chosen Pokémon.
The Pokemon Skateboards come complete with backgrounds that match each Pokémon’s type. If you like what you see you best be quick, however. Each design is limited to just 250 units. They also ship with decorative numbered cards and two wall mounts for display.
Pokemon Skateboards are a Growing Trend
“I loved the Johto region as a child for how it expanded the Pokémon world on from the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue games and introduced so many fun and interesting Pokémon,” Bear Walker said. “As Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver were so important to me, I wanted to do something fresh and exciting for this collection. We have completely reworked the entire board, right down to the shape and handles, while still having the focus of the design being on the Pokémon themselves to let them shine.”
These new Pokemon skateboard designed are available exclusively at Pokémon Center in the UK. They aren’t going cheap, however. Each is priced at £249.99 GBP. That’s a pretty steep hill for you to come rolling down.
That is, of course, if you actually intend on using them as skateboards. The units don’t ship with trucks, wheels or any other essentials. Instead, they come with wall mounts. These new Pokemon skateboards are definitely intended to be decorative, rather than actually used for, you know, skateboarding.
