Ever have dreams about catching them all? Now, you can keep at least one Pokémon by your side while you snooze. An officially licensed version of the beloved Snorlax will soon be available for your napping pleasure, according to RocketNews24.

Bandai has created a large cushion that resembles everyone's favorite lazy Pokémon. The enormous Poké-pillow is 59 inches long; that means you can easily crawl on top of his belly in order to catch some Z's. When you're all rested, you can prop the Snorlax cushion up and turn it into a very tall stuffed animal.

Along with a product description, Bandai offers some words of caution, according to RocketNews24: Don't recreate the show and place your stuffed animal in front of walkways or caves—there's no PokéFlute included to wake him up.

You can purchase the cushion for $460 on the company's site with shipping expected in August.

Listen to What Darth Vader Sounded Like On the Star Wars Set

The voice of Darth Vader, provided by James Earl Jones, is one of the most iconic aspects of the original Star Wars movies. But James Earl Jones wasn't the actor wearing that outfit—it was British actor David Prowse, who was cast in part because he was huge (reportedly 6'5" and a former body-building champion).

George Lucas always intended to replace Prowse's voice, but it's still a bit of a shock to hear a muffled British voice coming out of Darth Vader's helmet. Here's video showing what Darth Vader sounded like on the set before James Earl Jones re-recorded the dialogue.

A New Roller Coaster is Whizzing Through Colorado's Rocky Mountains

There are plenty of ways to explore the majestic Rocky Mountains, but few offer the adrenaline rush of the Rocky Mountain Coaster, a brand-new roller coaster that sends riders soaring along the range’s natural twists and turns.

As Urban Daddy reports, the Rocky Mountain Coaster recently opened at Copper Mountain, a mountain and ski resort that’s located near the tiny town of Frisco, about 75 miles west of Denver. Nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the vacation spot is ideal for hikers, skiers, and mountain bikers. Now, visitors looking to enjoy the surrounding scenery without breaking a sweat can cruise for roughly a mile down to the resort’s high alpine Center Village.

The ride’s raised track “runs along the natural curvature of the mountain, with zigs, zags, dips, and 360-degree turns for guaranteed thrills,” according to a press release. Each personal car is equipped with manual hand brakes to control the ride’s pace, but the coaster does feature a 430-foot drop, so be careful with your phones while Instagramming the view.

The Rocky Mountain Coaster is open-year round, though it will initially mostly only be open on weekends. Solo rides cost $25, and a two-ride pass can be purchased for $35. (Resort guests get an exclusive discount.)
