Baccarat is celebrating Pokémon’s 25th anniversary with a $25,000 crystal Pikachu

If you’ve grown-up binge-watching Pokemon, then there’s no way you don’t love Pikachu. The cartoon character is adorable like no other and thanks to the marquee, is now available in an alluring crystal form! Yes, you heard us right!

Introduced for the 25th anniversary of Pokemon, the dazzling crystal Pikachu is a result of a collaboration between the marquee and Bacarrat. The quirky figurine comes with its arms wide open, ears alert, and highly recognizable tail at attention.

Commenting on it, Baccarat said, “Pikachu has been transformed into an exceptional object for collectors. With its imposing dimensions, Pikachu Fragment symbolizes the unique know-how of Baccarat artisans. Multi-faceted and engraved with the “Electric” logo, Pikachu radiates more than ever to salute this very special year with brilliance.”

Standing at 14.5 cm and weighing 950 grams, the crystal Pikachu (though the highlight), is not the only product of the collaboration. The Baccarat X Pokémon ensemble also features a smaller Pikachu figurine and a Poké Ball that is dressed in a gold mesh to finish.
