In an unexpected yet oh-so-welcome turn of events, French brand Longchamp (known for its uber popular Le Pliage bag) is collabing with Pokémon, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Here’s what you should know about the Longchamp x Pokémon collab.

The Longchamp x Pokémon designs feature Pikachu, and comes in four exclusive versions: (1) in black and white LGP canvas; (2) in embossed leather; (3) in a numbered, limited edition; and (4) in black canvas featuring a Pikachu specially designed for the fashion house, complete with a jockey’s helmet that pays homage to the Lonchamp logo.
The bags are coming to Pokémon GO!
To celebrate the collab, Pokémon GO players will be able to customize their avatar with a new Longchamp x Pokémon backpack accessory, which will be available between October 2 and November 17, 2020 in the Pokémon GO shop.
