If you’ve always wondered what a flavor might be associated with your favorite Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Starter Pokemon, the popular Japanese convenience store chain FamilyMart has the answer.

Starting April 25, three special “Pokemon Frappe” shakes will be available at 16,500 FamilyMart stores across Japan. Each is associated with a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet entree, Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly.

The price is 350 yen including tax ($2.60 at current exchange rates), and interestingly, each one also comes with a bit of Pikachu in the form of splashes of yellow. It’s worth mentioning that FamilyMart released Pikachu’s own “Pikachu Pineapple Frappe” last summer. Obviously the experiment was a success and they are doubling down.
