These are little Pokémon Vending Machines with candy inside.

Both a toy and sweets, the vending machine dispenses candy balls when turning the knob just like a real gachapon machine. It’s themed after Pokémon, with 1 of 3 Pokémon on top of the machine; Bulbasaur, Pikachu or Ditto. The machine matches their colours.

The Pikachu vending machine has a Pikachu sitting on top. The machine is yellow with a red top and bottom and knob, to match Pikachu.
The branding is on the back of Pikachu’s head reading in raised font: © POKEMON MADE IN CHINA. The vending machine has on the bottom: MADE IN CHINA.

The whole thing comes initially wrapped in plastic, and the candy inside also comes initially in a plastic bag. You can remove the Pokémon figure on top, and the lid to add the candy / refill.

I spotted these Pokémon Candy Vending Machines in an Asian shop in Sydney, Australia. I wasn’t sure if they were official, but I grabbed a Pikachu anyway. There is a very nice and official looking holographic Pikachu Pokémon sticker on the back anyway.

I always bought these type of candies as a kid on markets; both toy and sweets. So it has something nostalgic for me. More importantly, I love gachapon machines and miniatures, and figured I could use this one with my figures.

I didn’t realise the figure would come off, which is nice as you can use it as a standalone too. The machine really works, which is always a nice touch.

The candy itself is awful in my opinion. It’s supposed to be strawberry flavoured, but it tastes sickly sweet and is rock hard as well.

I lowkey regret not having bought a Bulbasaur and Ditto as well, but I’m glad I impulse bought the Pikachu one at least.

I know there’s a large Pokémon Food collector base, and I love documenting niche things, so I decided to write these up for prosperity.

If you like Pokémon food merchandise, or little gachapon machines, you’ll like this.
If you just want the sweets, I’m sure there’s better options out there.

Got any more details / information you think I should add? Or did I get something wrong? Do you own any of these? Which one is your fav? Do you agree or disagree with my findings? Let me know in the comments below!
