A Collaboration Featuring Pikachu Pokédex No.025 to Celebrate BABY-G’s 25th Anniversary!

DOVER, N.J.Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The first BABY-G shock-resistant watch for women was released in 1994 and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. To help celebrate the special occasion, Casio is collaborating with the The Pokémon Company on a special edition of the BABY-G watch inspired by Pikachu, the 25th Pokémon in the Pokédex.

Longtime fans of the Pokémon video game franchise will enjoy details on the BABY-G watch reflecting the style of the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue video games released in 1996 in an edgy way.

The numbers “0:25” are printed on the band loop, while on a black base, the watch band is decorated with neon, polygon-style Pikachu lightning marks, and Poké Balls. The design of the dial references the original game screen, giving a very 90’s feel. A polygon-style Pikachu appears when the EL backlight is turned on, and Pikachu’s rear view is engraved on the back cover. Even the packaging is specially shaped like a Poké Ball.

This special anniversary model uniquely features Pikachu, who first took the world by storm by storm in the 90’s and whose popularity continues worldwide today.

To announce the partnership and showcase the watch for the first time, Baby-G and Pokémon released a collaborative video HERE.
