Official Pokémon lingerie is now a thing. A hot, confusing thing

Don't get your hopes up for a Western release just yet but Japanese company Yummy Mart has collaborated with Game Freak and Nintendo to make Pokémon pants. Poké-pants? Wait, that sounds... not right.

It's all part of Pokémon's upcoming 20th birthday, with this little lot available to buy in Japan from the 20th of April.

I'm confused by the hood towel thing. Is the rest of the body meant to air dry? Sadly, Yummy Mart had to clarify that the decapitated Pikachu head bra and pants set used to promo the new gear isn't for sale.

Seen something newsworthy? Tell us!
