Japanese toymaker Bandai is releasing a special line of replica Pokémon Balls called Pocket Monsters. According to the company's official website, there will be a total of 11 Poké Balls to collect.
This Collection Is Bittersweet
Now, before you run off to the store hoping to gear up, be aware the likes of #Pikachu and Oddish are not hidden inside. These realistic balls of fanboy excitement are principally designed to hold candy.
But They Look So Good!
Who cares about the candy, right? Any avid #Pokemon fan is going to snap these up in a heartbeat. Adding any quality Poké Balls to your long list of collectibles is a no-brainer.
Remember, candy is only the excuse for the #Bandai Pocket Monster creation. Once in hand, the application can be your own. I can see these as a great addition to an incredible cosplay, or opening move as part of a real-life #PokémonGo battle.

If anything, the Pocket Monsters are the must-have Pokémon fans Pez Dispenser. They'd be a great conversation starter to break the ice and maybe even have a little candy.
For the eager Pokémon collector who must have everything associated with the #Nintendo brand, as always, to catch them all is the real test.
