Following the success of The Pokemon Company’s partnership with sumo wrestling tournaments last year, the collaboration is continuing, with The Pokemon Company sponsoring themed banners and kimonos.

You’ll notice that the Pokemon featured are specifically those from Sinnoh, referencing the recent release of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, as well as the ancient prequel, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, due out at the end of January.

There’s a cute little trailer for the partnership, starring the incredibly cuddly sumo wrestling Pokemon Makuhita fighting/hugging a child, and former wrestler Kisenosato Yukata watching as Snorlax and Makuhita tough it out:

The sumo wrestling tournament is taking place from the 9th of January to the 23rd of January.
