Pokémon merchandise is ubiquitous in Japan, appearing everywhere from living rooms to manhole covers. This latest announcement is both nostalgic and funny – Slowpoke udon noodles!
The new packaged noodles are being developed with the help of Tokyo Game Life, a region in Japan that has been using Slowpoke since 2020. Of course the most striking part is the packaging, which is inspired by the classic Pokémon pair of Red and Green and a new white coloration.
Red is plum, green is olive, and white is just ordinary plain noodles.
TIP: If you happen to visit Kagawa, keep your eyes open for these noodles in the wild!
