(Pocket-lint) – After some superb anime partnerships in 2020, including G-Shock watches inspired by Dragon Ball Z and One Piece, Casio has collaborated with the Pokémon company for a special edition Baby-G.
The BA-110PKC is actutally the second in the range designed around Pikachu, with the first special edition wristpiece released as part of the 25th anniversary celebrations for the Baby-G watch line last year. However, that was more modelled on the iconic 80s Casio digital watch – this one is more rugged and has hands the shape of Pikachu’s ears.
Coming in pink, the strap features a camouflage pattern which includes a female Pikachu motif, notable for her heart-shaped tail. It combines analogue and digital elements on the face.
An image of Pikachu is on the rear.
Like the previous edition watch, the BA-110PKC comes with a special case designed to look like a Poké Ball.
The watch itself is water resistant to 100 metres, comes with a stopwatch, countdown timer and alarm function, while battery life is estimated at two years using two swappable SR726W batteries.
There are no smart features.

The collaboration watch will be available from 1 February 2021, priced at £139 in the UK, $150 in the US. Check it out on the official G-Shock online store.
