Pokémon Unite is growing and expanding all over the world day by day. The Pokémon Company has partnered with French fashion house, Balmain to release a special limited-time Balmain x Pokémon Trainer Fashion Set, which will be arriving in both Pokémon Unite and real life very soon.
Balmain x Pokémon collection will bring a trainer fashion set to both physical and digital worlds
The special collection will bring trainer fashion sets with Pikachu and his lightning-bolt tail, featuring hoodies, tops, jeans, sneakers, and backpacks, which will be available in both the physical and digital worlds. It also includes Balmain’s Labyrinth pattern, which has been combined with Pokémon’s bold colours and bright iconography.
This collaboration also includes 15 distinct Balmain x Pokémon NFC-enabled badges, available for in-person purchase at nine Balmain shops in America, Europe, and Asia. The badges will give exclusive access to a range of digital content and extraordinary prizes, including VIP tickets to the upcoming Balmain Festival during Paris Fashion Week and immediate access to the Balmain Fashion set in Pokémon Unite. Balmain created these badges in partnership with a tech firm, SharpEnd.
“Today, they make me think of an earlier, simpler time when we all shared a rosy vision of all the positive changes that we were certain that digital innovations would make possible. And that’s a key reason why I’m so happy to partner with Pokémon on this collection—because, right now, we could all use a reminder of those past moments of hope and optimism,”, said Balmain’s creative director Olivier Rousteing.
Unite players will get a Balmain trainer fashion set for free
Pokémon UNITE players can unlock the Balmain trainer fashion set for free, by logging into the game for seven days between 07:00 am UTC on the 2nd of September, 2022, and on the 30th of September, 2022 at 23:59 pm UTC.
Additionally, purchasing one of the Balmain x Pokémon patches will reward the players with a digital code to instantly unlock the Balmain trainer fashion set items for free using the Gift Exchange menu in-game.
“Balmain is an iconic fashion house that continues to capture the world’s attention with its inspired designs and elevated creativity. Pokémon has been a key driver of the cultural zeitgeist for more than 25 years and the key to our success has been our ability to drive innovation. In Balmain, we found a partner that shares our values and alongside them, we have been able to create something truly special that crosses the physical and digital worlds with fashion,” said Kenji Okubo, president of The Pokémon Company.
