What you need to know
- Pokémon and Razer have joined forces on a new keyboard, mouse, and mousepad only available in China.
- The set features none other than the series' electric rodent mascot, Pikachu.
- Pokémon and Pikachu references are all over the accessories, which are based on Razer's Ornata keyboard and DeathAdder mouse.
Look at your keyboard and mouse. Notice something? If you're like me, there's a disctinct lack of Pokémon pizzaz — and that's just tragic.
For the lucky Pokémon fans in China, however, there's now a remedy for this utter lack of pocket monster-laden PC peripherals I didn't know I needed (via Nintendosoup). Razer has released a special Pikachu keyboard, mouse, and mousepad, and I'm hopelessly jealous.
The accessories are built using Razer's Ornata keyboard and DeathAdder (opens in new tab) mouse as a base. The DeathAdder has had Razer's glowing logo replaced with an outline of Pikachu's tail. There's far more going on with the Ornata keyboard, which includes little Pikachus on the arrow keys, a Pokéball on the escape key, and even more of Pikachu on the wrist wrest.
All of this is tied together with a big, loud, yellow mousepad sporting the electric rodent himself.
As for me, I'll continue my journey to be the very best like no one ever was without Pikachu at my side.
No Pikachu :(
Razer DeathAdder Elite
Razer's king of the mousepad
The Razer DeathAdder Elite is a fantastic gaming mouse that is simply good at what it's designed for. No pointless features or rubbish you'll not use. Just a rock solid ol' fashioned gaming pointer.

Clunky bad boring design
Alice TR Pikachu would be better
I wonder if there would be a market to import the kit and replace the keys with a genuine Razer English or international key (physical) except for the special keys. The driver shouldn't care what language is selected...Ornata keyboard sacrificed for it's keys, or gift it to a touch typist and switch the keys, or use those stickers for other languages
Please tell me it's got built in sound effects.
When you press a key, it makse a Pika-Pika sound, and then when you hit return it says Pikachu!
The best part has to be the backspace key, activates the RGB lighting and flashes the backlight of th keys white and blue, then actually shocks you.
