Most of the time, this blog is about the many things you can do with cans, how great they are for our environment and what delicious drinks come in a can. The Taiwanese soda company YHB now reached a whole new level of can-awesomeness! Buckle your seatbelts, guys, here it comes: POKEMON THEMED CANS! Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about Pikachu on a can. How cool is that?! YHB sells a line of sparkling sea water called Ocean Bomb and recently introduced a line-up of these Pokémon themed beverage cans. It seems that more and more companies are keen on putting your childhood into or in this case onto a can, just like Ocean Bomb and also Ahoj Brause demonstrate.
Shredded Pokémons, or What?!
In order to celebrate the New Year, Ocean Bomb introduced seven different Pokémon themed cans. I know, it’s already been sometime since New Year’s, but hey! Pikachu’s face on a can makes up for our delay, right? The cans do not only differ in colour and thus the Pokémon on the cover but also in flavour. And no, they did not throw our favourite Pokémon into a blender and filled it in cans. In fact, all of these beautiful cans contain sparkling water with a different aroma: The Squirtle one, for instance, tastes like pear, and the Bulbasaur one tastes like apple.
More than just a Good Looking Can!
Of course, they had to include the three first generation starter Pokémon. Pokémon fans know exactly what I’m talking about and for the rest: those are Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle. These three already appeared on last year’s line-up and definitely bring back some childhood memories but also some more recent Pokémon-Go flashbacks. What’s new in 2018 are Pikachu, Snorlax, Jigglypuff, and the Master Ball.
You can buy the cans individually or five of them in a beautiful package. That’s especially interesting if you’re into collecting special editions or Pokémon stuff in general.
A Hard-to-Get Must-Have for Can and Pokémon Lovers
Unfortunately, I haven’t come across one of them in a store. They are really hard to get, if you’re not currently in Taiwan or know somebody who happens to be there. But I’m definitely keeping my eyes open the next time I’m in an Asian supermarket, because these cans deserve a glorious spot on my shelf!
Which Pokémon should they include in the next collection? And have you already tried one of these fancy cans? Let us know in the comments!
