Can’t Talk Putting My Head in Gengar’s Mouth

Home is where the plush tongue is

The Gengar pillow + Gengar and Ash in "Pokemon Journeys"

Let it be known that on January 8, 2021, life suddenly made a lot more sense. This was the day we came to know about the Gengar Pokémon tongue bed.

All this time I’ve been trying to catch em’ all but never stopped to ask, “What if … I let them catch me?”

From the creators of this masterpiece:

Comes the next evolution of “why isn’t this in my house yet” Pokémon products:

It’s clear to me that Premium Bandai is single-handedly trying to save 2021.

Sure, Gengar can be a bit mischievous, and might even cast a curse or two, but who wouldn’t want to hide inside a round shadow creature after the year we’ve had?

What do you mean it’s only been eight days?!

Technically, you can only fit your head inside of its mouth, but hey, you can also treat its plush tongue like a Fruit Roll-Up. There are a variety of ways you can use the new Pokémon in your Pokédex. If you don’t have any ideas then Premium Bandai’s got you covered.

The versatility is very effective.

If you’ve got 25,950 yen laying around (about $250 USD) and can bear waiting until June for your ghost/poison type to ship, then, well … Gengar still can’t be yours. Not only is it already sold out, but it looks like there’s no international shipping. There are more details via this article by PokéJungle along with Premium Bandai’s site.

For now, I’ll simply dream of the day I can watch my cats inevitably occupy the inside of Gengar’s mouth.

Or write some really great Valentine’s Day fanfic.

Draw your OTP on the Gengar bed. I DARE you.
