Build-A-Bear Workshop and Pokémon have been working together for some time now, allowing gamers to get physical, plushie versions of some of the most popular pocket monsters. Now a new one is on its way to the store: the one and only Meowth, and it is of course getting some extra outfits to give it a real Team Rocket vibe.
Fans will be able to purchase Meowth online as part of a $60 bundle, one which comes with the Pokémon plushie, a sound chip with six available sounds (no word on if this will have lines from the show or just Meowth saying its name like a non-Team Rocket member), and two hoodies: one based off the series' Quick Ball, and the other being Team Rocket-themed. At the start, Meowth will only be available online, but you'll be able to get it in stores eventually for $28; the in-store version, however, will lack the sound chip and the Team Rocket hoodie. But without that second hoodie, I have to ask, what even is the point?
According to the press release, Meowth will be available to purchase online starting today, though the page for it doesn't look to be live yet. Keep your eye out, though, because it should go live soon! Until then, you can check out some images of Meowth and its accessories in the gallery below.
Will you be adding this Pokémon to your plushie collection? Let us know in the comments!
