No stranger to amazing pop-culture designs and clothing lines, Uniqlo’s latest UT Grand Prix series theme was Pokémon; and after much deliberation, the new designs have finally hit stores.
With a broad range of designs selected from around the world (including two designs from Australian entrants), this latest range of Pokémon-inspired clothing looks amazing. The only downside is that some of the designs are only available in certain sizing (like this Ditto face one, available in Women’s). Get in quick to get your sizing as many of these designs are sure to sell out fast.

Of course this contest was no stranger to controversy; the original winning design and another finalist were both disqualified for contravening the rules of the competition. In this article from NintendoWire, it is explained that “Within Uniqlo’s fine print, any designs submitted could not have been sold previously.” You can see Uniqlo’s official statement, along with the winners and judges’ comments on Uniqlo’s official site. Initially, the winning design was set to appear in Pokemon Sword and Shield, however it is now unclear as to whether or not the second-place design will be promoted instead.
