Pokémon fans in Japan now have the chance to buy one of the coolest pieces of merchandise ever from the series – a Ditto-shaped purple sofa.
The Pokémon Company has come out with a brand-new piece of merchandise for Japanese consumers – a Ditto that’s taken the form of a sofa. While there are plenty of Pokémon that have been mascots for the series, such as the obvious examples Pikachu and Eevee, the cute purple blob known as Ditto certainly has its fans as well.
Throughout all of the generations that Pokémon has gone through, Ditto has appeared in each and every one of the games, as well as the seasons in the Pokémon show. Fans can even catch Ditto in a main role in one of the most recent Pokémon adaptions, Detective Pikachu, changing into plenty of different Pokémon along the course of the movie. It was really only a matter of time before Ditto was prominently featured in something, as he has wiggled his ways into the hearts of fans across the world.

As GameRant reports, The Pokémon Company seems to be taking Ditto’s popularity to heart, as it has just released a sofa themed around the iconic Pokémon himself. It’s quite large and features Ditto’s classic little smile and tiny eyes. Sadly, it’s only available to purchase in Japan, so American fans are going to have a harder time bringing Ditto home.
On the plus side, though, it really does look like what a Ditto would shift into if it were to shape itself into a sofa. For hardcore Pokémon fans, they could incorporate this sofa into their home for the price of 25,990 yen, which roughly translates to about $250. While it may not be available to purchase in the United States, one can’t deny that that’s not too bad of a price for a sofa, especially one that features everyone’s favorite little shapeshifter.
Even so, one really needs to remember that there’s still a face on this sofa. While some fans have always been devotees of the Pokémon, others might not be too fond of a sofa that stares back. But that doesn’t change the fact that it is very clever because Ditto – if it existed – would most likely shape itself into a sofa at some point. It can change into anything, after all. Whether or not players would want to bring this new sofa home, there’s no denying the usefulness that Ditto has had throughout the series. They’ve been used for shiny hunting, breeding, and fighting just in general because they are that good of a Pokémon to use. And, just as unique as the name it came from, the Ditto sofa will no doubt live in infamy as one of the strangest yet coolest Pokémon products ever.
