Pokemon Butts Get Their Own Merchandise Line

What a time to be alive.


The Pokemon Company is now selling new Pokemon merchandise in Japan, but it's probably not what you'd expect. Available as part of the company's new Hip Pop! Parade Collection are a variety of butt-focused Pokemon items, including plushies, coasters, magnets, keychains, bags, and more.

This is not a joke. Click through the images in the gallery below to see all of the rump-focused Pokemon items available to buy now. There's no word yet about if these will be sold in the US.
