I made it through the weekend, didn’t get trapped in the Atlanta airport, and it’s another Pokemon Friday with a new batch of up-coming merchandise announcements.
Tonight’s merch related stuff was fairly quiet but we have two up-coming treats to look forward to.
First up, the Putitto x Pokemon gacha series continues with Vol 2: This Time The Spoops Are Real. This set will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting September 30th (Saturday), with the usual price of 300 yen per play.
The set will have 7 figures in total with no secrets. The 7 Pokemon are Haunter, Mimikyu, Gourgeist, Litwick, Drifloon, Banette, and Sableye.
Second but not any less exciting… a new batch of Pokemon With You charity badges featuring the new super adorable artwork! These new badges will also go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting September 30th (Saturday). Each badge will cost 270 yen after tax and 100% of proceeds will go towards supporting children affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.
This batch will include Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Mew, Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Snorlax, Lapras, Dragonite, and Raichu.
Which one is your favorite? There are so many cute ones, it’s hard for me to pick, but that Mew with the heart tail is calling to me, along with Eevee!
Last but not least, these four 2018 schedule books are set to hit the shelves tomorrow (Saturday, September 16th) Japan time.
The two Pikachu schedule books are made of leather and cost 2,160 yen each after tax.
The Eeveelution and Ditto Transform schedule books are made of not leather material and the price reflects this with each book costing 1,080 yen after tax.
(You can order these books and more over at Japan Stuffs, including the Pokemon Yurutto goods that come out tomorrow!)
I have a small backlog of Pokemon Center Reports to put up, hopefully soon, so stay tuned!
Until next time~

Welcome to September! The month that basically just stands in the way between summer and MY BIRTHDAY HALLOWEEN October.
Before we dive into the Pokemon Merch announcements from Friday, a couple words from the management (aka Miki)
I basically run this blog and all associated social media outlets (Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram) as a way to connect with other Pokemon merch collectors, and to help share information as well as provide non stock photos of cute Pokemon stuff. With that said, if you find any of the things I share useful, please consider offering support! Not only does this help keep the site up and running, but it also lets me know that my words are not just floating off into the ether of the net.
Currently there are three main ways to help support Mikitzune.com~
Along with offering sneak peeks of my artistic works in progress, Patreon offers a laid-back environment where we can talk about up-coming (and current) merch releases.
I offer a couple reward tiers, one of which includes an original piece of art by request. These two pieces are Patreon rewards for August~
I also send out original postcards (illustrated by me) every month, with a new design each month.
Check out my Patreon here!
Buy Me A Coffee
A neat and cute way to help support the site (and also provide me with my much loved coffee)! If you leave the name of a Pokemon in your note when donating, I will draw a little sketch of that Pokemon for you as special thanks
Donate Coffees To Miki
Last and certainly not least, I am always open for art commissions! I accept a wide range of commissions, from simple illustrations and icons to headers, backgrounds, logos, and whatever you want. Although the majority of my most recent work is Pokemon fan art, I am always happy to work with other fandoms as well as original characters.
