In Japan, Bandai is releasing a set of Poké Ball. There’s a total of 11 different Poké Balls in the set, and while they’re designed to hold candy (and not, you know, Pocket Monsters), these replicas are rather handsome.
Over the years, Japan has seen an array of mock Poké Balls. They’re typically sold at supermarkets and contain small figures or candy.
The latest ones from Bandai are certainly a set up quality wise. See for yourself in the Japanese language comparison video below:
Bandai released four different Poké Balls earlier this spring. Priced at 7,020 yen (US$64), the set of eleven is not cheap.
But they do come with ramune candy, and who doesn’t love that?
