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.
