Oreo has finally unveiled its limited-edition cookie collaboration with Nintendo’s “Pokémon” franchise following months of teasers.

Gotta catch ‘em all: Announced through a YouTube video on Wednesday, the collectibles will feature 16 cookies embossed with iconic “Pokémon” characters, such as Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle, according to GeekWire.

  • Fans of the series may have to put a bit of effort into collecting all 16 since Oreo also announced they are releasing an “extremely limited amount” of Mew, a mythical Pokémon that is also hard to find in the video games, CNET reported. 
  • Oreo first teased the collaboration in a tweet in June, Mashed reported. The world-famous cookie brand dropped more hints in their original tweet, with comments such as “It’ll be super effective,” “It certainly would make a *splash*” and a thunder emoji referencing Pikachu.
  • The Oreo x “Pokémon” limited-edition cookie collectibles are now available for pre-order through the Oreo website. The collectibles are also set to appear in stores nationwide starting on Sept. 13. 

Reaction: Many fans of the cookie and “Pokémon” franchise shared their excitement on Twitter, with one user even calling the announcement the “best collab of 2021.”
