If you buy the Z Flip3 Pokémon Edition, you’ll get a picture case that you can insert Pikachu into, or you can swap him out for Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Snorlax, or Mew, depending on your tastes. There’s also a Pikachu Clear Cover Set and a pouch with a lanyard to make your phone look like a fully-fledged Pokédex.
A new Pokémon tie-in version of one of Samsung’s best foldable phones is on the way, and it appears to be the perfect package for anyone looking to theme their next phone after the popular brand. The Pokémon Edition is the name given to this latest version of the Galaxy Z Flip3 (via SamMobile). It includes a slew of extras to help you feel like the ultimate Pokémon trainer. Samsung is expected to reveal all of the information on April 25, although we believe it will be limited to Samsung’s native market of South Korea.
April 25 is when we’ll hear more about this special edition handset, and I’m hoping we’ll hear about a worldwide release for this Pokémon package. Often Samsung keeps these tie-in products for those in South Korea, though, so I’m not holding my breath for this to arrive in the US. Even if it does, we should anticipate a high price as the Z Flip3 typically costs $1,000 even without Pokémon branding.
The package also contains a Pikachu keychain and a Poké Ball stand to place your phone. According to Samsung, there will also be a variety of ringtones, themes, and wallpapers all themed around the series that you can use on the foldable. This all comes in a Pokémon-themed box, but we’ve yet to see what the packaging looks like from the front.
