Remember, candy is only the excuse for the 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 battle.

Don't stress if you're not proficient in Japanese, the above footage will still provide you with a clear understanding of these little Poké gems.

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 brand, as always, to catch them all is the real test.
