A new line of clothes and accessories inspired by Pokémon’s Hoenn region is available now at Original Stitch, the clothier and The Pokémon Company announced Friday. The apparel lineup in the Pokémon shop at Original Stitch includes options like a custom Pokémon shirt, mask, or bandana. There are up to 34 new patterns in all — including an array of favorites from Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire like Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip.

The collaboration comes as part of the celebrations for Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, and turns even the frumpier Pokémon like Slaking into business-casual attire appropriate to wear to the office (or at home). This clothing line is a great option if you’re interested in grabbing something that looks a little more subtle than other recent releases. Original Stitch is known for its custom-made clothing, so these shirts will cost you depending on how you customize them. They can get a little pricey, but for some, $100 for a quality Pokémon shirt might be worth it.

Previously, Original Stitch has released similar lines for earlier generations of Pokémon. When designing a shirt, you can combine all 285 types of original print fabrics from Pokémon that appear in Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, and Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, as well as plain fabrics.

This new line is but one of the many ways in which The Pokémon Company is celebrating the big anniversary year. In addition to other clothing lines, it released a song with Post Malone and a global event for Pokémon Go.

If you’d like to go and order yourself something, all the options are available at Original Stitch’s website.
