Three new Pokémon themes are now available for download on the North American 3DS eShop. These new designs made their initial launch in Japan a while ago and are now making their first international release to Pokémon fans today.

The first of the three new themes is named the “Pokémon: Radiant Collection,” and according to Serebii, was released last year in Japan to coincide with the Radiant Collection from the Pokémon Trading Card Game. The theme features Pokémon like Pikachu, Sylveon and Gardevoir on a cute pink and ribbon backdrop, creating one of the cutest Pokémon themes available on the eShop to date.

The next theme is named “Pokémon: Red and Blue” and features rivals from birth, Red and Green, ready to battle. The two trainers are featured on the top portion of the screen, while Charizard on the bottom half. If that wasn’t enough of a reason for you to consider downloading it, the theme also features the “Rival Music” from Pokémon Red and Blue.

The final theme, named “Pokémon: Ash-Greninja,” features artwork of Greninja in its Ash form. The mysterious Pokémon made its debut in an issue of CoroCoro last year and greatly resembles his trainer, Ash. While there aren’t many details about this Pokémon, it’s believed that Greninja takes the appearance of Ash because of the unique and powerful bond they share. Similar to the Red and Blue theme, this theme also features music.
