Forget about your Vans x Nintendo or Fila x Fendi collaborations, because this latest Pokemon collab is the only one you need.

Fila has teamed up with Pokemon for a limited edition series of trainers that feature five of your favourite Pokemon – Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Jigglypuff.

Priced at 69,000 won (£46), the trainers are only available in South Korea but if you fancy paying out for the shipping then they’re all still available at the time of writing.

Pokemon was released in 1996, and is centered on 806 fictional creatures which humans, known as Pokémon Trainers, catch and train to battle each other for sport.

The franchise began as a pair of video games for the original Game Boy that were developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo but it has no expanded to include movies, books, and a smash hit phone app, Pokemon Go.

More: Gaming

A Pokemon movie is also currently in the works; Ryan Reynolds will play Pikachu, the thunder mouse in Detective Pikachu, a spin-off from the popular Pokemon gaming franchise.

Motion capture will allow the film to use real actors to play the characters.

The film is based on Detective Pikachu, an adventure video game released last year in Japan, which saw a talking, intelligent Pikachu solve mysteries with a boy named Tim Goodman; the game was released on Nintendo 3DS and is yet to have a release in western territories.
