This year is the 25th anniversary of the 25th episode of the original Pokémon Anime series (Primeape Goes Bananas), with it being aired in Japan Sept. 16th 1997. In that episode, the main protagonist of the Series, Ash, get's his hat stolen by wild a Pokémon. It is then he reveals how he got the iconic hat and why it's so important to him.
As a huge fan of the Pokémon series, and someone who creates products through storytelling, I wanted to celebrate one of the most recognizable hat's in the world by re-creating the experience that Ash did in order get the hat himself, which has never been re-created. From Sept. 16th 2022 to October 2023 (when the episode aired in the US), I will be accepting mail entries for a chance to win 1 of the 100 limited, hand numbered hat editions.
