Drawing inspiration from the original Kanto region of the card and video game brand "Pokémon," a new Converse collaboration with The Pokémon International Company features a variety of apparel, footwear and accessories with motifs from across the "Pokémon" universe.  

Focusing on the family, the numerous lines of footwear collabs – from the Converse x "Pokémon" First Partners Chuck Taylor All Star to Poke Ball Chuck Taylors – build on the multigenerational appeal of the brand with footwear stretching from infant to adult sizes with a wide range of "Pokémon" motifs and characters. 

For apparel, Converse is celebrating the 25th anniversary of "Pokémon" with a dedicated milestone hoodie inspired by rock tour merchandise, a Jigglypuff Sherpa Crew Neck Sweater, "Pokémon" Team and Pikachu T-shirts and Camp Cap and Go 2 Backpacks to round out the collection with accessories. 

The collection also brings "Pokémon" to the customizable Converse By You range, where fans can tailor their trainers with bespoke designs.  

The Converse x "Pokémon" collection is heading to and select retailers from Dec. 10.
