If the world’s of “Pokemon” and “Stranger Things” collided—Would Eleven be Pikachu? Dustin, Squirtle? Mike, Bulbasaur? It’s hard to know for sure.

It measures 1.8” long, is dual posted and comes with corresponding rubber pin-backs. Every pin will come with a free 3” decal while supplies last. This design is limited to just 50 pins.
