A row of Gachapon Machines. Source

Gachapon (ガチャポン), also known as Gashapon (ガシャポン), is a brand name referring to toys that come in capsule machines. Similar to machines like it outside of Japan, one inserts the specified amount of money in coins into a slot, and turn a crank to receive the capsule containing the toy.

Many, many types of toys and merchandise come from these machines, and Pokémon is no exception. Everything from Figures to Keychains, Straps, Stamps, stickers, watches, coins, even hilariously tiny Gacha machines in the Mini Mini Gacha PokeMachine series.
