Giovanni is joining the Pokémon Nendoroid series


Giovanni, the leader of the evil organization Team Rocket in Pokémon Red and Blue, is the next character in Nendoroid’s Pokémon line.

The Good Smile Company teased the announcement on social media.

Details on when the figure will be made available, or how much fans will have to shell out for it, have not been revealed as of yet. Previous Nendoroids in the Pokémon line, such as Lana from the Ultra Sun and Moon games, were priced at 4,800 yen ($40).

Giovanni is the first villain from the series to be given a Nendoroid figure. He made his debut in the Pokémon Red and Blue games for GameBoy in the 1990’s and more recently appeared in the Nintendo 3DS titles on Pokémon Ultra Sun and Moon as a post-game boss.

The figure is not currently available to pre-order from Good Smile’s online store, but the company has promised to update fans with more photos and information soon.
