Though Pokemon usually get the spotlight, Poke Balls were the focus earlier this year when Original Stitch held a Twitter poll to decide which three Poke Balls should appear as button options. The winners were the Premium Ball, Dive Ball, and Moon Ball. The Pokemon Company and Original Stitch also added the option to design aprons based on the original 151 Kanto Pokemon.

The “Ball Freak” line of Pokemon and Poke Balls merchandise will appear in brick-and-mortar Pokemon Center stores on April 24, and will be available online from April 22, 2021.
