Bandai Namco of Japan is going to offer real-life, physical Pokeballs that you can proudly strap alongside your cosplay garter belt or man-satchel.

The new set of eleven Pokeballs will be released sometime this September, and it will cost you 7,000 yen (about $60).

What are the Pokeballs designed to do, you ask? They actually store breath mints:

You can pre-order the Pokeball set here on the official Bandai Namco site.

    They should hand these out at Smash tourneys. With VERY powerful mints.

    Maybe because its Namco there won’t be 5 sets made and “muh supply issues” afterwards.
