Razer’s Pokemon PC gear is only available in China… and it’s breaking my heart

Razer Pikachu keyboard and mouse

Razer and The Pokemon Company have teamed up to release a limited edition keyboard, mouse, and mouse mat set featuring the electrified yellow mouse himself. Yes, Pikachu has finally made it to PC gaming. However, there is just one caveat… this quality kit worthy of any Pokemon master is only available in China.

The Razer collab consists of a Razer Ornata membrane gaming keyboard, adorned with Pikachu highlights and dipped in vibrant Pikachu yellow paint. The flourishes of Pikachu aesthetic include etched Pikachu drawings on the palm rest, Pikachu tail arrow keys, and a Pokeball esc key. It also features a single colour backlight in, you guessed it, yellow.

The star of the show has to be the mouse, however. No, not Pikachu, the minimal Razer Goliathus gaming mouse with lighting tail palm design, aglow with signature yellow, and cheeky red highlights on the two thumb buttons and scroll wheel. This rests atop of a Pikachu themed mouse mat featuring Ash’s best bud front and centre.

The Pikachu Razer keyboard is 699 Yuan, or roughly $100, while the Pikachu Razer mouse and mouse mat set will set you back 399 Yuan, or $57. You’ll also need to consider shipping if you’re out of mainland China if you’re absolutely desperate for this PC gaming gear.

But can you put a price on the joy that official Pokemon merchandise? If the eight-hour queues at the Pokemon pop-up in London tell us anything, it’s that many of us are prepared to go through hell for that little yellow fluff-ball.
