Samsung's new Pokemon-themed Galaxy Z Flip 3 and the accessories it comes with. 


A Pokemon-themed Galaxy Z Flip 3 phone is dropping on April 25, Samsung said on its Korean website Tuesday. Specifics are scarce, but Samsung's Korean announcement indicates the device will be packaged in a box filled with various Pokemon-themed collectibles, including a Pikachu keychain, a pack of cards, a Pikachu cover set, a Poke Ball stand and a Pokemon pouch. 

The device will also include special Pokemon-edition ringtones, themes and wallpapers, according to Engadget.

Samsung hasn't yet released a price for its Pokemon-themed phone (the standard Galaxy Z Flip 3 retails for $1,000) or any additional details, but it's likely the device will be available for purchase only in South Korea. 

The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
