The Pokemon Company will release merchandise involving the evolutionary stones from the Pokemon series from June 25, 2022. Costs will start from 660 JPY (around $4.90), with items such as keychains and pouches available. In Japanese, the collection’s name is “SHINKA NO ISHI,” which literally translates to “evolutionary stone.” [Thanks, Game Watch!]
The basic concept of the merchandise revolves around Pokemon holding their respective evolutionary stone. They are also shown thinking about what they will look like after they use it. Illustrator Yukie Nakauchi designed the Pokemon.
Here is list of goods that you will be able to purchase, as well as the price points for them.
- Evolutionary stone fake display set (9900 JPY)
- Keychains (1650 JPY each)
- Pouch (1760 JPY each)
- Brooch collection (990 JPY)
- Earrings (1320 JPY each)
- Clip-on earrings (1320 JPY each)
- Necklace (1540 JPY each)
- Card (880 JPY)
Pokemon that appear in this collection include Alolan Vulpix, Minccino, Lampent, Clefairy, and Kirlia. Pikachu is also there, of course. As a result, the evolutionary stones that are in the collection are the ones that you will use to evolve these Pokemon. For example, Minccino uses the Shiny Stone, so merchandise will always pair the Pokemon with it.
The Pokemon evolutionary stones merchandise will come out in Japan on June 25, 2022. However, the online store does not offer international shipping. The newest Pokemon installments, Scarlet and Violet are in development and will release on November 18, 2022 for the Nintendo Switch.
