The Pokémon Company has collaborated with French fine crystal manufacturer Baccarat to make a Pikachu statue worth $25,000.
Designed by Japanese artist Hiroshi Fujiwara, the statue stands nearly a foot tall and can be ordered from the official Baccarat store for $25,000 / £19,500, or purchased from its stores in Tokyo, Paris, New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore.

“Celebrate a quarter of a century of Pokémon with 257 years of iconic savoir-faire,” Baccarat’s blurb reads.
If a $25 grand Pikachu is a little out of your price range, Baccarat is also making smaller crystal Pokémon items for just over $400.
A smaller crystal Pikachu is available to pre-order for $440 / £340, and stands at 5.7 inches tall.
Meanwhile, the company is also selling a crystal Pokéball for $410 / £310, which can be “used as a paperweight or placed alone on a shelf”. It’s dressed in a gold mesh and is 2.7 inches in diameter.
The Pokéball is available now, the small Pikachu is released on November 17, and anyone interested in the Pikachu Fragment needs to contact Baccarat directly to order.
This is perhaps the most elaborate of the numerous collaborations The Pokémon Company has been involved with to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Pokémon.
One of the most notable other examples is the Pokémon music album, which was released digitally on October 15 and contains music from the likes of Katy Perry and Post Malone at a slightly more affordable price of $11.99.
