Yoshinoya Teams Up With Pokemon To Serve Pokemon Beef Bowls In Japan

Popular beef bowl chain Yoshinoya and The Pokemon Company have teamed up for a Yoshinoya X Pokemon collaboration in Japan.

Yoshinoya is a fast food chain best known for serving affordable Gyudon, a dish that contains beef, onions, and rice in a bowl. The collaboration between Yoshinoya and The Pokemon Company will kick off with a “Series 1” campaign that begins December 19, 2019 and ends on March 18, 2020.

During the series 1 campaign period, the following Pokemon will be starred at Yoshinoya – Charizard, Groudon, Slowpoke, Weepinbell, West Sea Gastrodon, and East Sea Gastrodon. These Pokemon were chosen because their Japanese names have a “don” at the back, and “don” means “bowl” in Japanese, similar to beef bowl “Gyudon”.

Customers who order a Gyudon during the series 1 campaign period will receive them in a Poke Ball design bowl. On the bowl’s base is the design of a random Pokemon featured in the series 1 campaign. There are also 6 Pokemon figures to collect in series 1, with more figures coming in series 2 next year. Customers who order take-out would also receive their food in special Poke Ball take-out packaging.

Here are the prices:

  • PokeMori Kids Curry – 328 yen
  • PokeMori Kids Gyudon – 328 yen
  • PokeMori Kids Curry + Pokemon Figurine – 448 yen
  • PokeMori Kids Gyudon + Pokemon Figurine – 448 yen
