A new piece of Pokemon merch is taking the internet by storm, as a Hoenn favorite and a piece of stationary are combined gloriously.

Every single Pokemon has a fan, every single one. Even with well over 1000 of the creatures, there is a dedicated fan base for every ‘mon under the sun (Trubbish gang rise up), and because of this, every single Pocket Monster is bound to get some fun merch.

Proving this rule true is a fun new piece of Pokemon merch, unexpectedly showcasing a Hoenn favorite, but also in a way that makes so much sense it’s wild it hasn’t happened sooner.

Originally shared by Meccha Japan on X (Twitter), a new wave of Pokemon merchandise coming from Japan includes some Pokemon pieces that double as household items, and the pick of the litter is the incredible Trapinch stapler.

Plenty of Pokemon fans are going wild for the new merchandise in the comments, with one saying “genuinely going feral” before another person adds, “TRAPINCH STAPLER.”
