The unique plush became exclusively available in Japan and is already sold out with orders expected to be shipped in June. Translated at a price of $ 250 USD, the exclusive item doubled not only as a character plush, but as a rollaway bed.

In the history of Pokémon, Gengar has a huge long tongue that can be rolled out to attack enemies. In the spirit of following the character’s tradition, the plush also has the tongue, and rolls out to approx. 170 cm.
The advertising for Gengar plush encourages owners to use their tongues as a makeshift motorhome bed, and place their heads inside the Pokémon mouth to rest. Not only can it be used as a bed, but the product page also shows demonstrations that it is used as a headrest on a desk or is used as a companion.
Twitter has reacted to the unusual element and wondered who would actually use Pokémon as a bed. Content creator Stealth40k asked, “Who really wanted to sleep this way?” Others have joked about having a tough day and pushing their head into Gengar’s mouth as a postponement.
The only way I sleep this way is if I have been awake for a week straight, and if I closed my eyes once, I would fail. Otherwise, this does not contribute to sleep. And as soon as you fell asleep, your face would probably smash the table.
