Pokémon Shirts is a line of Pokémon-themed shirts created by Original Stitch (a subsidiary of World Co.[1]) in collaboration with The Pokémon Company. They were first announced on January 18, 2019, and launched in Japan on February 27, 2019 (Pokémon Day), and in the United States on October 4, 2019.

The range consists of a selection of different styles of shirts for men, women and children that can be customised with a range of fabrics featuring patterns inspired by Pokémon. Initially there were 151 different fabric patterns based on the Kanto Pokémon from Generation I. On Pokémon Day 2020, it was announced that the range would be extended to include patterns featuring the 100 Johto Pokémon from Generation II.

History

On January 18, 2019 Pokémon Shirts was announced in Japan and pre-orders for shirts began, although during this period only 20 of the patterns were available[2]. Those that preordered also received a free a buttonhole handkerchief made of a randomly selected fabric. From February 21 to February 24, 2019 a pop-up store opened in Harajuku, Tokyo offering visitors an oppertunity to buy shirts with exclusive fabric patterns from four guest designers, as well as previews of the 151 fabrics that would be available to order online from February 27, 2019[3].

Following the launch in Japan, on May 24, 2019 Ohta Publishing released issue 59 of Continue magazine which contained a special feature detailing all 151 fabrics available[4][5]. Following this, from June 7 to June 10, 2019 an exhibition was held at HMV & Books Shibuya that featured the original fabric samples for each design, along with a display of Pikachu plushies wearing different Pokémon Shirts. There was an exclusive poster for sale and visitors who brought along the volume of Continue received an exclusive sticker; those who had brought a copy at HMV & Books Shibuya received a sticker and a badge[6].

At the Pokémon 2019 Press Conference it was announced that Pokémon Shirts would be making its way to the United States and Europe[7] and on October 4, 2019 they began shipping in the United States. To promote the launch, Hawaiian-style short-sleeve Snorlax, Vileplume, Lickitung and Magikarp shirts were added to Pokémon GO[8] and a pop-up shop opened on October 5 & 6, 2019 in New York City. Visitors could purchase Snorlax, Vileplume, Lickitung, Magikarp and Pikachu Hawaiian style short sleeve shirts and those who made purchases in to store, or online while stocks lasted, received a free bag made of the Pokémon Shirts fabric. All visitors to the store also got a free magnet[9].

On December 18, 2019 it was announced that shipping would begin to the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand[10].

On February 27, 2020 it was announced that 100 new patterns had been created based on the Pokémon found in Pokémon Gold and Silver, and that 20 of them would be available for purchase in a three-day pre-order event starting that day. Again, a handkerchief was offered to those who preordered a shirt[11]. On the same day it was announced that shirts in children's sizes were now available (up until then there were only adult sizes)[11]. On April 3, 2020 casual-style long-sleeved Ledyba, Skiploom, Unown, and Smoochum shirts were added to Pokémon GO[12].

Pokémon GO

Main article: Style (GO)

To promote each release of Pokémon Shirts, four patterns from each generation have been added to the Style Shop in Pokémon GO. From the Kanto patterns, Hawaiian-style short-sleeve Snorlax, Vileplume, Lickitung and Magikarp shirts were added and from the Johto patterns casual-style long-sleeved Ledyba, Skiploom, Unown, and Smoochum shirts.

Generation I

Trivia

  • While the Pokémon Shirts website states that the 100 Johto fabric designs are available, the Celebi design is missing (which may be a reference to Celebi's ability to disappear). Setting the date on your device to November 21, 2020 allows you to find and purchase shirts with the Celebi pattern (which is a reference to Celebi's ability to travel through time)[13].
