The Poke Ball-shaped bowl will be available at 11,000 yen (~$70.45) apiece, and its base will feature a silhouette of Pikachu. Meanwhile, the tin tray shaped after the transforming Pokemon Ditto will be flexibly bendable and cost 7,150 yen (~$45.80).

The Pokemon Company will also help sell the items in a limited amount on both the Japanese Pokemon Center Online store and the physical Pokemon Center in Kanazawa City. However, Nousaku will offer an exclusive bonus sticker to people who order the items through its own stores while stocks last.

In addition to the merchandise sales, Nousaku will also hold an exclusive Pokemon-themed casting workshop at its head factory in Takaoka City from July 1, 2024, to September 30, 2024. People will be able to create their own chopstick rest, and they can also choose a Pokemon motif based on Charizard, Sandshrew, Ditto, or the third-generation Wind Chime Pokemon Chimecho.

Reservations for the time-limited workshop are also available in English, provided that the applicants can physically visit the factory and attend the workshop in person. People of any age can join the workshop, although children aged five or under must be accompanied by a guardian for safety reasons.

Nousaku will start selling pure tin Pokemon merchandise and holding the Pokemon-themed casting workshop on July 1, 2024.
