It’s been two decades since its inception and Pokémon is still proving to be a pop culture powerhouse.

Fans in Japan will this week be able to purchase Pikachu themed sleep wear thanks to a new range by local lingerie retailer, Yummy Mart.

The adorable collection features underwear and ponchos (that kind of look like a sexy onesies) emblazoned with the yellow creature’s iconic features.

A cute Pikachu eye mask will also be available when the line goes on sale on Wednesday along with a pyjama set covered in Pokémon balls and a matching circle-shaped laundry bag.

While the merchandise will only be available in Japan, fans of the series may soon be able to look forward to a live-action Pokémon movie.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Sony, Warner Bros. and China’s Legendary Entertainment are secretly competing for rights to produce a film.


In the meantime, here’s a video of some life-size Pikachus nailing a Beyonce dance routine.
