Following the successful partnership of The Pokémon Company with sumo wrestling tournaments last year, the partnership continues with The Pokémon Company sponsoring themed banners and kimonos.

You’ll notice that the Pokémon featured here are specific to Sinnoh, citing the recent release of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, as well as the ancient prequel to Pokémon Legends: Arceus due out in late January.

There’s a cute little partnership trailer starring an incredibly cuddly sumo wrestling Pokemon, Makuhita fighting / hugging a child, and former wrestler Kisenosato Yukata watching Snorlax and Makuhita fight:

The sumo wrestling tournament runs from 9 to 23 January.
