Gengar's Cursed Mouth Pokemon Pillow Is Now The Perfect Way To Escape Reality
It's super effective at blocking out the outside world.
Barely ten days into 2021, the world remains more chaotic than ever. If you're looking for some way to escape the madness outside, then Bandai and Nintendo may have a solution for you: A massive Pokemon pillow that allows you to stick your head into the gaping maw of the ghostly Gengar.
More than just a comfortable plushy portal to block out the outside world and possibly scream into, the Gengar cushion also allows you to unroll the Pokemon's trademark lengthy tongue out as a convenient blanket. At five feet and five inches in length, it looks to be a comfortable surface to lay on before you enter the sensory deprivation chamber that is Gengar's mouth.
Good luck getting your hands on one of these pillows right now though. According to Pokemon merchandise-tracking website Pokeshopper, the Gengar cushion--which costs over $250--sold out after an hour of going live. It's also worth noting that in Pokemon lore, Gengar's mouth is capable of breaching the dimensional barriers between life and death.
In Pokemon Sword, Gengar's Pokedex entry says that "its gigantic mouth leads not into its body, filled with cursed energy, but instead directly to the afterlife," while its Pokemon Shield entry states that "if you stand in front of its mouth, you'll hear your loved ones' voices calling out to you".
While you probably won't be transported to the afterlife by this plush collectible, there are alternative pieces of Pokemon merchandise currently available such as a fantastically detailed Pokeball replica.
