They tell us about their winning designs.

Pokémon’s always been everywhere. From Pokémon Emerald on the Game Boy Advance to Detective Pikachu, you can’t deny that the beloved franchise has kept up with the times. Even the Pokémon Go app (remember when MMDA had to release a statement about it?) has a pretty sweet update.

It comes as no surprise that Uniqlo got into the Pokémon game, and it’s about time they did. For this year’s UT Grand Prix, the brand challenged designers around the world to come up with Pokémon designs fit for trainers and admirers alike. From more than 18,000 entries, they selected 22 designs — three of which designed by Filipinos — to be sold around the globe.

My design is a homage to ghost type Pokemon. I’ve always loved ghost types so I picked a dozen memorable ghost Pokemon and drew them all in my favorite colors.”HVNN (Hannah Lee)

I was inspired by the idea of origami and Pokémon. When you check my design, it’s actually a step by step process on how you can come up with a Pikachu origami.” – Dana Asahan

My design is centered on Jigglypuff based on the anime series. Jigglypuff sings and whoever hears it falls asleep, so Jigglypuff gets angry and scribbles or doodles on their faces.” – CTRLD (Louis Nichole Santos)

Ready to cop ‘em all? Check out the other designs below:

22 designs were chosen out of over 18,000 entries to the Uniqlo UT Grand Prix 2019.
