It’s unfair that there hasn’t been a Pokémon and Squishmallow collaboration before now. Thankfully, our days without the adorable plush toys will eventually be over: On Wednesday, Squishmallow and The Pokémon Company started teasing an exceptionally cute collaboration. And on Friday, we’ve got the first look of the Pokémon Squishmallows at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
Jazwares Pokémon global brand manager Aaron Margolin posted a look at the Squishmallows on Twitter, showing that it’s not just Pikachu. Gengar’s got a Squishmallow form, too. Pokémon fans at SDCC are starting to get a peek at the toys as the show floor in California opens, too.

There’s no pricing details available just yet. Squishmallows creator Jazwares announced in a news release that Pikachu and Gengar will be available later this year, in the fall, on the Pokémon Center website.
Squishmallows come in plenty of different sizes — from minis at five inches to bigger boys at 24 inches. Prices typically range up to $50.
Update: This story has been updated to include new information from a Jazwares news release.
