It looks like Nabisco is releasing Pokémon Oreos very soon.
On Wednesday morning, Oreo took to social media to tease an upcoming collaboration with Pokémon. The cookie brand shared a cryptic 8-second video on Twitter, suggesting that it is developing a new cookie sandwich based on the popular Japanese media franchise.
Although Pokémon was not mentioned in the tweet, the inclusion of emojis related to Electric-type, Grass-type, Fire-type, and Water-type Pokémon strongly implies that Pokémon-inspired Oreos are about to hit store shelves.

Whatever Oreo and Pokémon are cooking up for fans, their confirmed partnership is the latest addition to the list of collaborations between Pokémon and other brands in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary. Earlier this year, Pokémon partnered with Levi’s and McDonald’s and artists like Katy Perry and Post Malone to make its silver anniversary extra special.
To make the milestone even more memorable, The Pokémon Company is also working on two new games: an open-world game called Pokémon Legends: Arceus and remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl titled Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, respectively.
Meanwhile, Oreo, prior to its newly announced collab with Pokémon, most recently partnered with Lady Gaga for limited-edition cookies inspired by the pop star’s latest album Chromatica. Taking design cues from the feel-good dance album, the Lady Gaga Oreos are pink Golden Oreo cookies with green crème filling and feature three Chromatica-inspired designs embossed onto the wafer.
As part of the collab, Gaga and Oreo also launched the Sing It With Oreo website, which fans can use to create and send uplifting Oreograms to their loved ones. Oreogram is the name given to a message recorded on the Sing It With Oreo website, which can be shared on social media.
