Kanro Corporation, known for its Kanro Candy and Pure Gummy products, will launch the Puré Gummy Pokémon Pikachu & Pochama (ピュレグミポケモン ピカチュウ&ポッチャマ) developed in association with The Pokémon Company. It will be on sale nationwide in Japan for a limited time from Tuesday, October 26th, 2021. There is a total of five cute packages to collect!

Pikachu Pure Gummy's were first released last year in June 2022, and four products have been released so far, each of which has received a huge response on SNS, with comments such as "So cute" and "I want to collect them".

Pochama, the penguin Pokémon, is attracting a lot of attention right now, and it is the latest addition to the Pure Gummy Pokémon lineup. It has been gaining a lot of support for its charming and cute appearance. In the spring of this year, Project Pochama launched, and it is a project to not only spread the charm of Pochama to the world, but also to support fans of Pochama through various activities.

In addition, the remake of the 2006 games "Pokémon Diamond and Pearl" with "Pokémon Brilliant Diamond" and "Pokémon Shining Pearl" will be released on November 19 this year, and Pochama will also appear as one of the three starter Pokémon.

Pikachu and Pochama in gummy form! Two assortments with the refreshing taste of fruit and soda. Puré Gummy Pokémon Pikachu & Pochama will be available in two cute assortments, one in the shape of Pikachu and the other in the shape of Pochama.

The Pikachu-shaped gummy flavor is a reintroduction of the popular Electric Shock Tropical Flavor from the first series. It is a well-balanced flavor made with pineapple and mango juice, combined with a soda flavor that reminds us of Pikachu's Electric power. On the other hand, the Pochama's gummy is the "Fruit Ponchama flavor", named after a combination of fruit punch and Pochama. It features a refreshing flavor made with muscat and tangerine juice. Also, you'll be lucky if you find the secret heart shape!

Image

There are a total of five types of Pochama and Pikachu packaging! There are also a total of 15 fun games on the bottom of the package. 11 kinds of Pokémon trivia and 4 kinds of mini-games to find Pikachu and Pochama.

HYPEBEAST is celebrating Pokémon TCG‘s 25th anniversary with an exciting capsule collection and a host of activations in Hong Kong. This special collection dives into the trading card game‘s rich history for an eclectic offering of playful goods. Conjuring up the nostalgic feeling and the excitement felt when Pokémon TCG first hit the market, this collection homes in on that very special moment when you or a friend first pulled a Base Set Charizard. Pictures from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

These past years have seen Charizard’s popularity rocket to new heights, becoming a staple card in the decks of many collectors and players alike. While Pikachu is arguably the most known Pokémon overall, in the TCG world, Charizard is now a household name among all TCG fans, even appearing as the centerpiece to Logan Paul’s fight fit when facing off against Floyd Mayweather.

With items that span from T-shirts, hoodies, stickers, phone cases, and home accessories, the Fire-Type Pokémon Charizard is highlighted via graphics that transport fans back to the ’90s. On top of the individual soft goods offered, special bundle sets containing card booster packs will be available where fans have the chance of pulling a rare holofoil-print Charizard tee.

The capsule collection launch will take place in Hong Kong with two pop-up events marking the occasion. The first one will take place on the basement floor of Sino Centre, Mong Kok, a popular gaming and manga/anime hub, on October 20 for two days. The second pop-up will take place from October 23 at BELOWGROUND LANDMARK, Central, featuring an interactive space where Pokémon fans can gather and view the full collection on display.

For those looking to celebrate Pokémon TCG’s 25th Anniversary with HYPEBEAST outside of Hong Kong, the collection will also be available via HBX on October 22. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for further updates.

HYPEBEAST Gears up for Pokémon TCG 25th Anniversary With Custom Hong Kong Tram

Image

“Catch a ride, Catch a smile,” and try to “Catch ‘Em All.”

After covering its iconic trams in Pantone’s HK Tram Green, HK TRAMWAYS is back in the spotlight with a new wrap for HYPEBEAST’s Pokémon TCG 25th anniversary celebration.

A Hong Kong commuting staple, the Hong Kong tram has been in operation since 1904 and has a rough daily ridership of 180,000. Usually for those with time on their hands, the form of transportation cost just $0.35 USD, and to many, is the slower, scenic method of travel. From its first stop in Kennedy Town to the last station in Shau Kei Wan, each double-decker tram passes by each of the 180 stations on the Hong Kong Island and is part of the world’s largest fleet of trams at 165 vehicles.

Celebrating 25 years of the trading card game, the custom tram makes its debut just days before HYPEBEAST‘s special activations in Mong Kong and Central. The tram itself takes on a dark design that’s themed on the build-out of the BELOWGROUND pop-up space taking place from October 23 – November 21. Clad mostly in black, HYPEBEAST’s collaborative Pokémon TCG logo in signature yellow along with a 25th-anniversary card pack and smokey Charizard outline add contrast to the tram’s design.

The official video for J Balvins contribution, "Ten Cuidado," debuted today and can be viewed HERE. The award-winning Colombian singer, known to most as Reggaetons global ambassador, is joined by some of his favorite Pokémon — Pikachu, Hitmontop, Totodile, Loudred, and Charizard — in the clip, which was shot in New York City. Colin Tilley (Halsey, Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B), who helmed Balvins MTV VMA award-winning official video for "Rojo," directed.

"I always wanted to be Ash Ketchum and through this collaboration with Pokémon Ive been able to live out a childhood dream," said J Balvin. "That love for Pokémon inspired ‘Ten Cuidado, my contribution to P25 Music, as well as the video in which I get to be a Pokémon Trainer in New York City. I cant wait to share my fandom for Pokémon with my fans around the world with this song and still cant believe I get to be part of this project."

"The release of Pokémon 25: The Album marks the culmination of a yearlong music celebration of Pokémon by an amazing array of global artists," said Colin Palmer, vice president of marketing for The Pokémon Company International. "From Katy Perry and Post Malone to todays release of J Balvins contribution to the album, all of the artists brought a unique perspective to this collection, which we hope brings music fans as much joy as Pokémon has delivered for 25 years."

Tokyo-based artist/producer Yaffle created the new track "Reconnect" (feat. Daichi Yamamoto & AAAMYYY) for P25 Music. French singer Louane, UK artists Mabel and Jax Jones with Sinead Harnett further attest to Pokémons universal appeal. Post Malone offers up "Only Wanna Be With You (Pokémon 25 Version)," a surprising take on the Hootie and the Blowfish hit, and Katy Perry led the charge with the uplifting single "Electric". Vince Staples, Cyn, Lil Yachty, and Tierra Whack also joined in the celebration. See below for tracklisting.
