This is adorable, but I was hoping for some actual bottles of soda pop.

The bottles are styled after ramune bottles, and there are tons of Pokemon-branded ramune. There's always at least one or two different bottles at Uwajimaya every time I go. But I'm not paying over $3 for a bottle.

Yeah, I know. I sometimes see them in some Asian supermarkets around here myself, though they aren't really meant to remind people of the Soda Pop item and are just basically Ramune bottles with stock artwork of Pokémon characters on the labels. I've yet to see licensed Ramune bottles that actually play up this item (alongside Fresh Water and Lemonade, maybe Moo Moo Milk), but I'm guessing the Ramune bottles are aimed not at the players of the video games, but the young viewers of the anime.
