Following last week’s bandana release, Original Stitch and The Pokémon Company have added a new product that fans can customize. Now you can purchase face masks! Initially offered as free with purchase gift at Pokémon Center locations in Japan earlier this year, Original Stitch has now made it available full-time.

 

 

 

As shared in a press release, these face masks are “[m]ade from the fabric left over from tailoring shirts in Japan, Pokémon Masks are available in all 151 types of Pokémon patterns that appear in “Pokémon Red and Blue.” In addition, on the back side, fans can choose from all four colors of breathable mesh fabric.” These masks are available in two sizes – small (4.4 x 3.3 inches) and medium ( 4.8 x 3.7 inches) – and are $18 each. Like the Pokémon Bandanas, you can qualify for free shipping if you purchase a mix of five or more bandanas and/or face masks or if you purchase at least two shirts/polos.

Currently, Pokémon Masks are available to customers who reside in Japan, United States, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Italy, France, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. As of this publication, the current shipping time for orders is between five and six weeks. Masks may differ from what is shown online due to the fabric remnant used, aren’t intended to prevent infectious diseases, and cannot be returned. 

 

 

With 151 Pokémon to choose from and four liners (white, black, pink, and blue), what design combos will you make? Head on over to Original Stitch’s “Pokémon Shirts” site now and peruse the patterns!
