Following the popular release of the Pichu, Pikachu and Raichu custom skateboard decks by industry craftsman Bear Walker earlier this year, The Pokémon Company International announced today that three new limited edition skateboard designs featuring the first partner Pokémon from Johto are now available exclusively at Pokémon Center in the UK.
Each skateboard deck features a built-in textured surface and natural wood accents that complement a bold design of Chikorita, Cyndaquil or Totodile, who fans will remember from the Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver video games that originally launched in 2001 in Europe. Complete with stunning backgrounds that match each Pokémon’s type and limited to just 250 units of each design, the skateboard decks also ship with decorative numbered cards and two wall mounts for display.
“I loved the Johto region as a child for how it expanded the Pokémon world on from the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue games and introduced so many fun and interesting Pokémon. As Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver were so important to me, I wanted to do something fresh and exciting for this collection. We have completely reworked the entire board, right down to the shape and handles, while still having the focus of the design being on the Pokémon themselves to let them shine.”Bear Walker

I like the graphic design artwork, but honestly i perfer the Yugioh skateboards with Dark Magician, Dark Magician Girl, Kaiba and Blue Eyes White Dragon graphic designs.
Makes me want to lose some braincells and take up skateboarding.
Bet you couldn’t even learn how. Tell me in one sentence what’s wrong with these boards. I dare you
They’re not skateboards, they’re pieces of wood with round edges and 8 holes drilled in them. No concave at all.
I thought they were band-aids at first 😅
