The Pokemon Company and Bear Walker have revealed a new skateboard deck collaboration. It's coming to the UK Pokemon Center site in early March and it's set to feature three of the most iconic Electric-type Pokemon in series history, but if they don't float your boat, more collabs are on the way throughout the rest of the year.
According to a Pokemon Center announcement, the collab between Walker and Pokemon is set to arrive on March 3rd, exclusively via the UK Pokemon Center website. The boards will feature special designs for Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu, all depicted in the same stylized way. You'll also get wall mounts with the boards so that you can display them.
This is a limited-edition run, so there will only be 250 of each board available. The boards will come with numbered cards so that you know which one of the set you've got. We don't know how much the boards will cost yet, but previous Pokemon boards designed by Walker were available for around $250 each, while Walker's limited run of 250 boards for Marvel cost $210 apiece. We'll have to wait and see.
If you aren't feeling the Pikachu evolution line boards for whatever reason, rest assured that more are on the way. Pokemon says that "additional skateboard deck drops" featuring other popular species of Pokemon will arrive in the UK throughout the rest of the year.
Unfortunately, there's no news as to whether these collaborations will arrive in the US, but given that the collection is apparently exclusive to the UK Pokemon Center website, it's probably not going to happen for a whle yet. Make sure to stay tuned to TechRaptor for more news on this, as well as more on all things Pokemon. Here's hoping you'll get a chance to pick up these cool-looking boards at some point in the future.
