Perhaps the most awesome of them all was basically inevitable. When you have a Pokemon as adorable and meme-worthy as Lechonk, and it happens to look like a pig, a piggy bank is just the natural fit.

You can see what it looks like below, and you can’t tell me it’s not absolutely adorable.

Of course, the Lechonk piggy bank is just one of the new products available. we’re also getting picture frames, keychains, bath towels, notepads, ballpoint pens, ID pass cases, and a picture frame.

Portrayed are the new legendary Pokemon Koraidon or Miraidon, the starters Sprigatito, Quaxly, and Fuecoco, and the new entries Pawmi and Smoliv.

We also get plenty of merchandise focusing on the two schools, Naranja Academy and Uva Academy.

All the products will go on sale across the Japanese Pokemon Centers on Nov. 18, just in time for the much-anticipated launch of Scarlet & Violet.

At the moment, we don’t know if the same or similar products will be sold at the western Pokemon Centers, but we can only hope that it’ll happen at some point.

You can see everything below and start salivating.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet releases on Nov. 18 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
