The Pokémon Company and toymaker Takara Tomy are finally capturing the purest essence of Pokémon Joltik and Yamper in toy form. A new plush combines the two in a very particular way, in which Joltik is absolutely feasting on Yamper’s ass.
The new plush, which will cost you 6,000 yen, is more than just a static stuffed animal — it vibrates! This is a pull toy; yank on the Joltik end of Takara Tomy’s plush and the “Attaching Pokémon” will scurry right up to Yamper’s booty, where it will suck out the electricity from the Puppy Pokémon.
This is, of course, canon in the world of Pokémon. As noted in Joltik’s Pokédex entry in Pokémon Shield, “Joltik latch on to other Pokémon and suck out static electricity. They’re often found sticking to Yamper’s hindquarters.” Previous Pokédex entries for Joltik are less graphic, simply noting that the Electric/Bug-type Pokémon sticks onto large-bodied Pokémon and absorbs static electricity, storing it for later in a pouch.
A GIF on Takara Tomy’s website illustrates how the magic happens:
The Yamper/Joltik plush — known as the Buruburu Bachuru (Shivering Joltik) — stands about 12 inches tall and 16 inches in length. It will ship in September, and is available exclusively at Takara Tomy’s online store.
Here’s a photo of what your work-from-home life might look like if you owned a plush toy of Joltik going to town on Yamper’s cheeks.
