While the official website hasn't listed the collection just yet, the collection can be viewed on the PKMN Style Twitter account, an unofficial fan page dedicated to Pokémon-related apparel. It seems that clothing and video game collaborations are all the rage this year, with a Puma x Animal Crossing collection featured earlier in 2021.
