Here’s what they had to say about it – ‘Another awesome Pokémon collaboration from Sapporo Ichiban. The anime franchise never stops to capture every generation’s passion. This curry bowl is full of umami: chicken, beef and cooked vegetables together with the unforgettable taste of Japanese curry. The soup is quite creamy and the mellow taste of curry just lingers in your mouth
after a gentle slurp on your noodles. They’ve balanced it out with a gentle sweetness that you can taste through the curry and to avoid making it too spicy. The noodles are thick and chewy, matching the consistency of the noodles. Now, you Pokémon fans, we’ve got 3 different designs: which one did you catch?’

I recognize some Pokemon on this product but not the one on the lid. J,,,. Well, let’s eat some Pokemon!
