A $ 250 Gengar pillow launches in Japan and … well, it fits the character.
But if you’d like to get your hands on it, you’re probably already lucky. The plus, developed by P-Bandai, was available for pre-order last night, but sold out in less than 75 minutes.
The pillow, according to the classic ghost Pokemon style, is 48cm high and 53cm wide. It is slightly smaller than its “real” size – Pokedex places the average Gengar 1.5 m from tail to tip – but compensates for its diminutive body with its huge tongue. The lining inside the main body of the pillow has more than five meters of lining, which can be rolled for multiple purposes (apparently) related to sleep.
It is difficult to assess exactly for what purpose the plush is intended to be served. Last year, Bandai launched an official Metapod sleeping bag, but it’s much harder to figure out where you should put your head when it comes to Gengar. Some promotional photos show a model squeezing her tongue to be used as a pillow, but others show the model resting her head in the Pokemon’s mouth, using her outstretched tongue as a very thin mattress, while others still suggest that the tongue may function as a blanket. . I also have several questions about why Bandai continues to position its bedding items as part of a businessman’s home work environment, but that’s another matter.

It is unclear whether there will be a second wave of pre-orders or sales or whether the item will ever be shipped separately outside of Japan. As devastating as it is, though, you can at least be reassured that the pillow is quite accurate for Pokemon games, thanks to Gengar’s ability to learn both Lick and Hypnosis.
