Update: For those inquiring, the Fleece Varsity Hoodie is now available at the Pokémon Center. All three designs — Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble — are available in adult sizes.


The overall design is wonderfully subtle, displaying the embroidered starter Sword & Shield Pokémon on the front, upper left side. Its name is then spelled out in large text on the sleeve. Whichever starter you choose, you can’t go wrong with any of these options!

Each hoodie is priced at $55 a piece. Plenty of other apparel pieces — pants and t-shirts especially — are previewed below.

Make sure to visit the Galar First Partner Pokémon Collection page at the Pokémon Center to view all of the items and a whole lot more product photos!

Pokémon Sword & Shield is nearly a month away and there’s no better time to start prepping for your adventure in Galar than by celebrating your starter of choice! The Pokémon Center’s finally introduced its collection dedicated to the Grass, Fire, and Water-types you’ll be embarking your journey with soon. From apparel to key chains and mugs, you’ll be able to count down the next few weeks with your favorite little buddy in style.

The partner jerseys will let you roam around work and home in a cute sporty fashion, and if you’re lookin’ for something a bit more casual, the relaxed t-shirts might be more fitting.


Maybe you want to show off your Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble pride somewhere other than your wardrobe though — if that’s the case, the felted wool banners are definitely worth taking a gander at.


If you’re like me though, a simple mug donning a starter will be your pickup in this batch of goods. I mean, nothing’s better than relaxing with a hot cup of coffee on an autumn day with Grookey, Scorbunny, Sobble at your side!


There are quite a few other items featuring the trio of starters that you’ll want to check out, too — backpacks and the already-released plushes to name a few!


Make sure to head over to the Pokémon Center’s dedicated Galar First Partner Pokémon Collection page to view everything.
