Pokmon have been getting turned into adorable toys and other merchandise for years, as fans just can’t get enough of the adorable little fighting critters. The Pokmon Company may have gone overboard with its latest project though: turning all 151 original Pokmon into plush toys.

Pokmon Fit is a new line of “palm-sized” plush toys that will be sold at Japanese Pokmon Center locations. Each will cost about $10, so you’ll have to spend more than $1,500 in order to purchase them all. You’ll also probably need to get a bigger place in order to fit all of them, unless you plan on squishing them into your 151 spare Pok Balls.

The first wave of Pokmon Fit plush toys releases July 13 and will feature 30 monsters, including Pikachu, Eevee, Rattata, Moltres, Jigglypuff, and Ditto, to name a few. Diglett is one of our personal favorites, as the plush comes with simulated dirt on the bottom to make it appear that the Pokmon is popping out of the ground.

In November, the next wave of Pokmon will be released, though the announcement didn’t specify which to expect. Most of the ones available in the first wave are of the initial forms rather than evolutions, so we’re hoping to see Charizard or Blastoise make an appearance.

Though it doesn’t appear that there are any plans for the Pokmon Fit line to release in North America, we’re betting you’ll be able to find them at the Nintendo New York store later this year.

Pokmon fans are certainly being kept busy, withPokmon Quest available for free on Switch, iOS, and Android andPokmon: Let’s Go coming exclusively to Switch this November. Like the plush line, Let’s Go will focus exclusively on the original Kanto monsters, and either Pikachu or Eevee will follow you around as you explore the 3D environments, catch new Pokmon, and battle trainers. As with Pokmon Go, the game uses a motion-based system to catch new creatures, and a special Pok Ball Plus device can be used as a controller instead of the Switch’s Joy-Con. If you play Pokmon Go, you can also use the device with the mobile game and even bring your phone’s collection onto your Switch.
