If you just gotta have all things Labo and Pokémon, then do we have an obscure addition for you. It’s been announced that the March 2020 issue of a Japanese magazine aimed at kindergarteners will include papercraft versions of Pikachu, Eevee, and Bulbasaur as they appear in the free-to-play game Pokémon Quest.

These boxy buddies may be wearing expressions of absolute terror, but they’re fully compatible with Labo. By attaching Joy-Con to them and using features from the existing Toy-Con Variety Kit, you can control them like you would a cubist RC vehicle.

Those who pick up the issue of Yochien the crafts will feature in can also get some fun out of them without a Nintendo Switch — with the cutouts able to slide along a papercraft playset modeled after Pokémon Quest’s island environment. It’s a fun little extra for the youth of Japan, and a new goal for Labo completionists the world over.
