Mister Donut Party-Chu Pokémon Collection
This year's Mister Donut Pokémon collaboration features the return of the Pikachu doughnut that was a social media hit in Japan last year, as well as a new Pikachu Tail doughnut and Mister Donut's famous Pon-de-Ring doughnut transformed into a "Pon-de-Pokéball". Tapioca soda drinks themed after the new Pokémon Sword and Shield starter Pokémon are also available in three flavors.
Mister Donut Pokemon Doughnuts
The Pikachu Doughnut (240 yen plus tax) is made with a fluffy dough filled with whipped cream and a banana flavored chocolate coating.
Pon-de-Pokéball (180 yen plus tax) is the famous Mister Donut Pon-de-Ring coated with a strawberry glaze and then half coated in white chocolate to create the look of a Pokéball.
Pikachu Tail Doughnut
The Pikachu Tail doughnut (180 yen) was named by a fan vote on Twitter. This custard filled French cruller doughnut is coated with banana-flavored chocolate.
Mister Donut Pokémon Tapioca Drinks
Bubble tea is currently taking Japan by storm, but kids who don't like tea don't have to miss out! Three types of tapioca sodas based on the new starter Pokémon - Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble - are available. The green Grookey flavor is made with grape-flavored tapioca, the red Scorbunny flavor is made with peach-flavored tapioca, and the blue Sobble flavor is made with lychee-flavored tapioca. Each costs 590 yen (plus tax) and is served in a fun cup decorated with a Pokéball top cover and the new starter Pokémon.
Mister Donut Christmas Pokémon Original Goods
Limited-edition Christmas mugs and plates are available. They feature Pikachu and starter Pokémon, both old and new. These plates are available in Christmas Sets that start at 900 yen and include a doughnut from the Pokémon range, a drink, one item from the mug and plate set, and an original coaster.
Exclusive Pokémon hand towels are also available in the Mister Donut Kid's Set. These towels come with a loop that can be used to hang the towel up or to roll the towel to create a Pokémon toy for kids to play with. Pikachu, Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble designs are available.
A free fold-up visor featuring Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble are also included in the Kid's Set, which comes with the choice of a doughnut, rice, pasta, hot dog, or pizza dish and a drink for 190 yen (take out) or 192 yen (eat-in).
