The Japan Pokémon Center is celebrating the release of the Detective Pikachu Blu-ray and DVD set with a new plush! While the commemorative gesture is sweet, you’ve got to admit that this little guy looks really, really sad. If anything, maybe that will make you want to cuddle him even more.

What do you think? Do you just want to comfort the adorable sleuth even more when you see its scrunched up, wrinkled forehead?

This ridiculously somber Pikachu plush will be available for 2,000 yen (roughly $18.50 USD) at Pokémon Center locations in Japan in about two weeks, on October 30th.
