Friday Pokemon Announcements – Hokkaido Grand Re-Opening + Pokemon With You + New Sun & Moon Merch

This week has been non-stop for me since the Pokemon Sun & Moon release on Friday, and here it’s almost a week later. But better late than never, so here is last week’s Friday Pokemon Announcements!

Starting with the most important…

*drum roll*

We finally have photos of merchandise from the up-coming Hokkaido Pokemon Center Grand Re-opening promotion! And it’s basically as marvelous as you could hope for. The stars of the show are definitely the three main plush, which are NOT EXCLUSIVE to the Sapporo Center. They will be available everywhere in Japan! Unsurprisingly, there is a strong “Sapporo” theme to the line-up. Aside from the items that feature the main winter time artwork, there are a couple unique things such as the wood carved statues (wood carved bear statues, sometimes with salmon, are especially common as souvenirs in Sapporo) and the noodle bowl set (with miso flavored instant ramen as miso ramen is famous in Sapporo). As an additional side note, not only is miso ramen my favorite ramen, but I love it with extra butter added, which is another Sapporo tradition.

If we’re discussing items unique to Sapporo, we can’t ignore the Sapporo exclusive plush, featuring William S Clark (in Pikachu form). Notorious for his famous saying, “Boys, be ambitious!” William Clark managed to leave quite a lasting legacy considering he was only in Japan for eight months.

The Sapporo Center will re-open December 1st, which not quite incidentally is also the date of the Hokkaido promotion.

Next up: new Pokemon With You metal charms! These charms are set to come out December 3rd, the same day as the January Monthly Pair Pikachu plush.

The new set includes: Rowlet, Popplio, Litten, Rockruff, and Togedemaru. Each charm costs 270 yen.

Last but not least, a couple unannounced items came out last week and here is a small round-up of some of the more exciting of the items.

passcases

Plush pass cases! Not only can they hold your train pass, but you can store loose change in them as well, making them handy, useful, and cute. These pass cases are 1,296 yen each.

sunmooncharms

Acrylic charms! Don’t let my image size fool you; these charms are probably bigger than you think. Charm line up includes: Alola Exeggutor, Alola Meowth, Alola Raichu, Alola Sandshrew, Alola Vulpix, Comfey, Litten, Lunala, Mimikyu, Popplio, Rowlet, Solgaleo, Tapu Koko, Togedemaru, and Zygarde Perfect Forme.

Each charm is 648 yen.

clipcharms

We also have these clip and chain charms, perfect for attaching things to your bag! From what I can tell, the clips are pretty strong as well. There are currently four designs available: Alola Raichu, Alola Vulpix, Mimikyu, and Pikachu, and each chain and clip charm is 1,080 yen.

carabinerstarters

Last but not least, carabiner clips! I was amazed how nice (and heavy) these clips were, as I’m used to the ones that are a little cheaper looking and one color. The clips come as Popplio, Litten, or Rowlet, and cost 702 yen each.

That’s all for now! Stay tuned for tomorrow when I’ll hopefully actually post about Friday Pokemon News on Friday!

    • He is! I think at this point the Vulpix plush are sold out – Alola Vulpix plush are incredibly popular and it seems like the Pokemon Center is currently not limiting purchase orders of plush at the moment.

        • Usually for promotions like this, once stock is sold out they don’t restock. There is a chance the American Pokemon Center online webshop will have them later on, but otherwise you’ll have to buy them second hand if you haven’t gotten one already.
