Puma have released a collaborate Pokémon collection based on the original starter Pokémon from Gen 1, namely Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. These Kanto-based Pokémon dress five different sneakers, with Pikachu’s likeness seen on both the RS-X and Rider FV, Bulbasaur’s on the Rider FV, Charmander’s on the Slipstream Lo, and Squirtle’s on the Suede.
The Pokémon x Puma RS-X 'Pikachu' (389541-01) takes on the yellow colour scheme of its namesake, with pale yellow fabric overlaid by darker yellow suede, yellow laces, and speckled black and yellow panels on the midsole. The black stripe through the midfoot features lightning strikes throughout in a nod to Pikachu’s special attack. Additional touches include Pikachu’s face featured on the tongue tab, the Pokédex number printed on the inside of the tongue, and a lightning elemental symbol on the heel tab.
