Get ready to eat em’ all because Pokémon has just announced a mouth-watering new collaboration with Oreo cookies.

In a tasty development nobody saw coming, Pokémon appears to be continuing its quest to take over the food industry thanks to a brand new partnership. This time, it’s with the humble Oreo cookie.

The news comes courtesy of Press Start, who found a recent listing on the Oreo website which states that there will be sixteen different Pokémon-themed cookies to discover. “But be aware,” warn the Oreo overlords. “Some Pokémon are harder to find than others. With a random assortment of Pokémon designs in every package, each package is a chance to find all 16, including one super rare Mythical Pokémon.

Well shucks, there goes our weekly grocery budget.

Unfortunately for the moment, we’re not entirely sure if these new Oreos will make their way to our shores, or if they’ll remain a limited edition release only in America.

But perhaps that’s not such a bad thing considering we’re still getting ready to hit up every Maccas drive-thru in order to get our hands on those damn appealing Pokémon Happy Meals. In each one you’ll find a total of four official Pokémon Trading Card Game cards. All up there are 25 different cards to collect – all of which you’ll likely see pop up on eBay in the next few days. Hey, we’re just calling it how it is.

That’s also in addition to the recently announced collab between the beloved pocket monsters and Krispy Kreme. That limited-edition collection features drool-worthy doughnuts inspired by the original first partner Pokémon and the almighty Poké Ball. Lucky for us, that one is available around the country and can be ordered via the Krispy Kreme website.
