Original Stitch and the Pokémon Company are back with another amazing release of new designs for their apparel, this time focusing on the Hoenn region! With everything from shirts, to aprons, to bandannas and masks, and designs that range from bright and cartoony with obvious Pokémon featured, through to more subtle hints at your Hoenn faves, these are so cool!
Whether you want the world to know you are wearing Pokemon, or want to get away with a shirt that is more understated and recognisable only to fans, Original Stitch have nailed it.
Official Press Release
Original Stitch and The Pokémon Company today announced the launch of new apparel, allowing Pokémon fans to choose designs from 34 patterns featuring Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region, as seen in the classic 2002 video games, Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire.
The launch follows the initial release of 34 Pokémon from the Hoenn region on February 27—better known as Pokémon Day. The new apparel lineup includes shirts, masks, bandanas, and, most recently, aprons from Pokémon Shirts, a customized shirt service from Original Stitch, in collaboration with The Pokémon Company, which first launched in February 2019.
“This launch is about honoring the community that loves this region of the Pokémon universe,” said Marina Carroll, Marketing Manager at Original Stitch. “Our initial launch of Hoenn-inspired designs was such a success that we realized that everyone who loved the classic 2002 video games, Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, would want a greater choice of patterns—and a deeper involvement—with the characters.”

“The addition of these patterns allows fans of the Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire games to show even greater support for their favorite Pokémon and join the 25th anniversary celebration with their own signature look, whether they favor custom shirts, masks, bandanas, aprons, or any combination of these items to keep this year-long party going,” said Marina Carroll, Marketing Manager at Original Stitch.
