Slowpoke, a Pokémon famously known for being goofy and laid-back, has joined the roster of Japanese furniture maker Cellutane’s comfortable Pokémon sofas.
The newest Pokémon product by Cellutane, which is based in Japan’s Kanagawa prefecture, is called the Slowpoke Bead Sofa. In Japan, the word “sofa” can also reportedly be used when describing furniture that is soft and designed for one person.

According to Cellutane’s listing, the Slowpoke Bead Sofa’s materials include expanded polystyrene beads and high-elastic urethane foam. And for those who are curious – yes, it does come complete with Slowpoke’s adorable ears and tail. 
The sofa — which has a base of 92 centimeters by 101 centimeters (approximately 36.2 inches by 39.8 inches), weighs 8.75 kilograms (approximately 19.3 pounds) and has a cover that’s both removable and washable — is the latest addition to Cellutane’s roster of “Pokémon” sofas, which includes a spooktacular Gengar sofa, a snooze-inviting Snorlax sofa and a Rowlet sofa that looks like a hoot to sit in. Cellutane also offers Pokéball ottomans.
Priced at 28,400 yen (approximately $205), the Slowpoke Bead Sofa is available on Cellutane’s official website and at other online retailers.
