Pikachu second from the right looks like he's been initiated into the Assassin's Brotherhood.

I like the tie. There should be more smart/adult gaming related clothing instead of just hoodie and tshirts.

When would you wear a gaming tie? During an interview? A Tinder date?

Well maybe the date one would work out if some setup was done first.

Is that wallet price correct?! Comes to upward of £100!

How much for the tie?

Why am I even asking? Chances of me buying any of this this: zilch. (Would totally buy the tie if it was shipped from Europe, though.)

The rocket tie actually looks nice... I'm not a fan of wearing gaming-related clothing, but it seems pretty tasteful and I doubt most people would even realize.

Pikachu was always a bad egg in the true history. That lightening flash messed him up though, so now Mr.100+ is mucking around with the likes of Ash 'Best 16' Ketchum from Pallet town. Sad

Well the beauty of that tie is that the design is subtle, though I could perhaps do without the red R, but that's part of this collective theme, so it's not really screaming 'gaming merch'. There's are many occasions when you can wear a tie outside dates and interviews.

I want the Galactic and Plasma pins. Hmm, they don't seem too expensive...

Edit: Flare Pikachu looks good as well.

If you're going to use a forwarder service or something then October 8th is when the online store will have this stuff.

Looking at the other page are some event Pokemon too: http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/2016/09/160902_p01.html
They are available for one week only and the rotation is different for each store.

A remember a teacher of mine in school had hundreds of ties and a Sonic the Hedgehog tie was one of these.

3800 yen.

I'm down for maybe the shirt and hoodie (maaaybe), though.

I like the tie, although the big red R I would've preferred if one of the normal sized R's was red instead. It looks nice.
