Set for an April Release in Japan, new Bandai Gashapon (Capsule) Goods will be available, and feature Pikachu, Mew, Gengar, Slowpoke and Metapod. It's an odd batch of keychains, and again a strange choice selection, however they seem to be producing as much for the Kanto generation as much as possible. Each keychain measures to be approximately 33mm in size, and each capsule will be 300円.
