Pokémon merchandise runs the gamut from cute to bizarre, and today’s announcement from Bandai very much falls in the latter category. You’ll be able to pick up a batch of Poké Balls and holster them on your belt.

Rather than a Gloom or a Garbodor, the various Poké Balls are designed to hold something decidedly less smelly – breath mints.

A set of eleven will cost 7000 Yen, with six included clips to let you hook them onto a belt. The Japanese release is set for this September.

These Poké Balls will surely be useful to cosplayers the world over, even if Bandai are primarily marketing them towards office workers, for some reason.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
