Kickass!

So apparently, there's a new brand that The Pokémon Company (Japan) is now releasing. It's called "Pokémon 151". It's to cater to adult Pokémon fans (most of us who probably don't come to PC - I'm 18, so I'm technically an adult fan) with a variety of clothes so far. (Official website is at pokemon151.jp, but it's not open yet.)

I dig that Hypno. :DDDDDDDDDDDD

WANT TO IMPORT WANT TO IMPORT WANT TO IMPORT

Sounds like so far, it's Japan-only. Hopefully it'll roll into the States. (Which means I could import from there.)

They're quite pricey at ¥4,530, though. :x

:O

That Articuno... do wannnnt. :F So, they want to "capture" the older age groups, eh? It's definitely a good idea to finally dive into that area... But heck, I want one. ._.'' I'd totally walk down the street in that Articuno shirt instead of "Gotta Catch Em' All!" any day. XD I hope they bring it to the US too, I'm sure they'd hit big bucks bringing that here. Sheesh, that Articuno is just awesome. Starting with only these four? Hmm, then I can't wait to see the other ones when they come out.

Wooooow, that is so cool. I dig that Marowak. :D
They don't seem that adult-ish, though. I bet all the teenage Pokemon fans would wear them. :x I can't wait to see the other ones. They only released four. D:D:D:D:

Those shirts really do look nice, I would wear them. It's a good idea by the company to be delving into this branch of the market.

Yupp, definitely Articuno. I'd even strut my stuff in that shirt, and no one knows I'm a Pokemon fan. If anyone asked? Heh, "I guess American Eagle changed it's logo!" I got it all planned out. >:D

That hypno one looks pretty groovy too, Hiroshi. I hope they don't forget about us quiet little Canadian folk. I can't wait to get my hands on one of these.

Seriously? Dang, that's quite a bit just for a shirt D:. I guess it's worth it though, 'cause that Articuno Tee looks so... beastly. I must have it.

I hope they do that sort of thing for all (most) of the Pokemon. Have their Dex number and everything :).

Wow that's such a great idea! It'd be really popular amongst adult males in society, they should make a female line of clothes too, even scarfs! It'd be really popular. =)

^Pink Skitty scarf!

I wanna see some of my favorites on there as well, but I think they're only going Season 1 of pokemon?

...

Are you an idiot?

13

Oh, right. Anyway, it's never going to happen, because it would be completely retarded. Pokemon with excessive cursing and violence would just be whoring itself out to market to immature brats who think CUSSAN N VIOLANCE IZ MATOORE.

I think game designers and the clothes designers are different.

Plus pokemon wants to keep its appeal to little kiddies as well, because that's what inevitably helped boost it, right?

Oh, wow, that's real nice. I'd get one. Love Articuno, but if only it was on a black shirt to match my wardrobe.

And I'd kill for a Meowth shirt.

Totally awesome. Articuno...*drools* that shirt is the best.
That mewtwo one is pretty cool too.

Well, I'm a girl, and I'm quite interested in that Articuno. :/

But since all you guys are interested in it, I don't want to bump into you(hypothetically speaking, of course) and you be wearing it, too. xD So I'd take the Mewtwo.

And a girl's line would be nice! Eeveelutions, anyone?

This line is awesome. I am unlike you all though, I want the Cubone shirt. ^.^ Though... I don't think I could wear any of them because I am "bigger" than the lot of you. Kinda disappointing...:(

I really like the Articuno too. But I think Cubone is pretty cool too. $45 isn't that much for a really nice designer shirt like that though (some people I know pay like $75 a shirt), so it'd be something I'd save up for.

These sound really cool, but if they did come to America or other places around the world maybe the price wouldn't be so high.

Do want! ♥ Those are awesome, I might actually wear one XD; They actually look mature enough for somebody out of elementary school to wear without getting stared at, or smirked at. Hopefully they'll come to the states, or at least be popular enough to appear at some conventions or something :>

If they make a Zapdos version of that Articuno shirt, I will attempt to import it... Otherwise, they are good looking shirt designs, but nothing worth going the extra 9000+ miles for.

...D-D-DO WANT. :'D I could probably pass off that Mewtwo shirt as something relatively cool and casual under my zipper hoodie and not get ridiculed! That's definitely going on my wishlist now :D! ♥

They'd better import over here or at least have a cool online store or something where I could order one. The shirts actually look really nice, and not cheesy or corny or whatever. XD

It is about time they realize that there are fans of Pokémon that are older than twelve years of age.

They all look really nice, I like them all except the Articuno one, it looks sorta plain.
The cubone one is the best.

I would definitly get this if it was available in my area..
