The glasses are available on the JINS website (opens in new tab) and are priced between $140 - $120 (£104 - £89) for adult sizes and $100 (£75) for kids. According to a tweet made by the glasses company, this stock is currently only available online, however will be making its way into JINS stores soon.

The collection is made up of four models that contain nine different Pokemon to choose from. This includes:

  • The “Flagship Model'', which contains Pikachu, Eevee, Snorlax, and Mew themed specs
  • The “Kanto Region” model [COMING SOON], which is a little more subtle, only featuring the Flagship model Pokemon on the inside of the glasses arm
  • A “Johto Region” model, which features Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Lugia and Ho-Oh variations
  • The kids models, which are available in Pikachu, Eevee, and Mew styles and were mainly influenced by the Pokemon animated TV series.

Each pair also comes with a Pokemon glasses case, collectable sticker, and cleaning cloth, all of which vary in design depending on which model you go for.

The glasses are all coloured in accordance to their Pokemon and feature the unique characteristics of each Pokemon in their design, as well as an etched silhouette on the glasses arm. This means that Pokémon like Pikachu, Eevee or Mew contain earpieces modelled after their tails and those like Snorlax who don’t have tails are modelled after their feet. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter.

As the countdown to Christmas continues, why not have a look at our best gifts for gamers.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
