The Lunar New Year In Video Games
The biggest and best in-game events for the Lunar New Year.
As part of Pokemons 25th anniversary celebrations, the iconic gaming series has teamed up with clothing brand Levi Strauss & Co. to offer an exclusive range of pocket-monster-themed attire.
Along with some pleasing jumpers, hoodies, and t-shirts displaying Pokemon like Snorlax and Gengar, the collection also includes some more, er, unusual choices.
A Misty-based design includes a combo of high-waisted denim shorts, suspenders, and a yellow top with a Togepi sat on the front. Its hardly the most inspired look but serves as a high quality cosplay for fans of the old-school cartoon character. And with prices reaching up to $148, you can be sure everyone will know youre a Poke-fan with cash to splash. Bolder is the Pikachu-themed, denim-jacket-and-pants pairing which slap the famous mascot cheerfully on your back and legs, along with a lightning bolt down one arm.
And if youre a Pokemon lover who truly, desperately must make sure everyone around you knows it, theres also a garish garden-green denim jacket and pants combo. Covered in a selection of popular critters from the series, the outfit is certain to draw eyes, presumably followed by an unpleasant gag reflex. Thankfully the full lineup does include some more tasteful options such as an Ash Ketchum hat, Pikachu beanie, Jigglypuff socks, and a Levis logo T-Shirt featuring a cute snoozing Pikachu.

Its so fun to hear people talk about their love of Pokémon, said Karyn Hillman, chief product officer at Levi Strauss & Co. The fact that we had this ability to play and create with so many iconic Pokémon and characters was really a special experience. Its such a thoughtful collection that respects and celebrates the world of Pokémon, and it was so cool mixing our icons and history with theirs its nostalgic and optimistic, with a little bit of escapism.
The all-over printed Trucker and jeans are two standout pieces, said Jenny Carlin, director of womens tops design who worked on the collection. The pattern is bright green and very colorful, and we added greenery and flowers to give it more depth. Its fun to look at it and see all the characters we were able to incorporate into the print.
A fun yet elevated design approach
Even though she spent months working on the collection, Jenny is still eager to get her hands on the product when its available next week.

Fashion really loves anime right now. We’re just hitting February, and already Gucci has released a Doraemon capsule, Loewe has become enamored withMy Neighbor Totoro, and Levi’s has been teasing Pokémon denim. Cuteness and nostalgia are forming a powerful force, one you may not be able to resist while getting dressed.

Most fetching of all is a set of all-over print jeans and denim jacket with a forest scene filled with Pokémon. I’ll need a fanatic to verify, but it appears as if all 150 of the original creatures show up amongst the foliage giving you a one-cop path to catching ’em all.
Pikachu is the star, duh With few exceptions, the Levi’s x Pokémon capsule is Pikachu-centric. The little guy appears on ’90s-style stonewash 551 straight leg jeans and a Vintage Fit Trucker jacket that come in as #3 and #4 for most coppable pieces, as well as T-shirts and crewneck sweatshirts.
Expect rapid sellouts and start deciding what you want now if you want a chance at this kitschy collection.
