Priced at 49,500 yen ($577), a life-sized Slowpoke will be available for pre-order later this month.

Who wouldn’t want that? This is a Pocket Monster with its own messed-up theme song, postal, and mailbox. Everyone loves Slowpoke.

As the official Japanese site explains, the plushie measures 64 centimetres high, 75 centimetres across, and 150 centimetres long. It weighs a hefty 8 kg and seems ideal for lounging around on.

Like so.

Is this the first life-sized Pokémon plushie? Goodness, no! Previously we saw a one-to-one scale Furret, which was quite long. Then, there was also the life-sized Pikachu, which weighed a whopping 6 kg. What Pocket Monster will next be immortalised as a realistic plush toy?

The Slowpoke stuffed toy will be released in Japan this November. No word on an international release.
