Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pokemon Putitto Vol 2 + Pokemon With You

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pokemon Putitto Vol 2 + Pokemon With You

Hello everyone!

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.

GhostPutitto07
GhostPutitto06
GhostPutitto05

GhostPutitto02

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~

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Dot Sprite 2017 + Isetan Pikachu Plush

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Dot Sprite 2017 + Isetan Pikachu Plush

Hello everyone!

This past Friday (August 18th), there were no merchandise announcements, and the only release for Saturday (August 19th) was the blind-packaged Hoenn region can badges.

But! This year’s Dot Sprite promotion was released last Wednesday (August 16th), along with a couple random items.

There were no plush or cushions with this year’s release, but there were hand towels! Pictured here are two of the three designs (the third was dot sprite style pokeballs).

It’s not a Pokemon Center promotion without clearfiles, and this release featured three designs, each with multiple pockets!

There were two memo pads in cute boxes (one design with just Pikachu and one with the main group illustration) and an unboxed pad of sticky notes.

If notebooks are more your style, there were two Pokeball die-cut notebooks.

One of the cutest items from the merch list was this set of three clear pouches. Use them together or separately (or keep them minty fresh and safe in your collection!)

Coinciding with the opening of the very limited Isetan x Pokemon store, available exclusively at the main Shinjuku Isetan building (which includes a super cute cafe with Pokemon themed food and drink), an Isetan themed Pikachu plush was also released at Pokemon Centers on the 16th.

Last but not least, this rather unique “multi-ring” for smartphones was released recently as well. Available in three designs (Alola Vulpix, Snorlax, and Eeveelution), you can attach this ring to the back of your phone and use it to…I’m not exactly sure. Hold it better? Attach it to things? Clip it to a string and swing it around your head like a deadly Pokemon themed projectile? Whatever your heart desires I guess!

That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report.

Until next time~

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Dot Sprite Series + Official Pokemon Go Merchandise + Momo-Taro Pikachu

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Dot Sprite Series + Official Pokemon Go Merchandise + Momo-Taro Pikachu

Hello everyone and sorry for the wait!

We didn’t get a whole lot of announcements this past Friday, but we did get some.

First up, the ever popular (?) Dot Sprite series returns with new merchandise scheduled for release August 16th (Wednesday). Fitting in with the recent trend, a lot of the more exciting items aren’t photographed. Also I question mark popular as the series resurfaces every year but it never seems to be a big seller, so I’m not sure why the Pokemon Center focuses so much attention on it.

Merch Line-Up

5 Pocket Clearfiles (Ash / Yellow / White) – 454 yen each

Die-Cut Notebook (2 Designs) – 702 yen each

Fancy Handkerchiefs (Pikachu / Group / Pokeballs) – 1,944 yen each

Not Pictured

Metal Key Holder (Pikachu / Squirtle / Bulbasaur / Charmander / Slowpoke / Pokeball) – 1,404 yen each

Beaded Earrings (Pikachu / Oddish / Gengar / Pokeball) – 3,780 yen each
Set of 3 PVC Pouches (Black / White) – 1,944 yen
Block Style Sticky Notes – 540 yen
MemoPad w/ Box (Pikachu / Group) – 972 yen
Masking Tape – 918 yen

T-Shirt (Pikachu / Gengar / Magnemite / Diglett | Medium / Large) – 3,240 yen each
5108 Necklace (Pikachu Smile / Pikachu Love / Super Effective! / Pokeball / Pikachu Dot Sprite / Pikachu Tail / Kanto Starter Group) – 4,104 yen each

Pokemon Go Merchandise is finally making an official appearance at Pokemon Centers in Japan! These items will be sold in combination with the popular Pikachu Invasion event in Yokohama and consequently, these items will be available through the Yokohama Center only starting August 9th (Saturday). Pre-orders are currently open as well through the on-line Pokemon Center Store.

Merch Line-Up

T-Shirts (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct | Kids) – 2,700 yen
T-Shirts (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct | Small / Medium / Large) – 3,300 yen
T-Shirts (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct | XL / 2XL) – 3,500 yen

Long Towels (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct) – 1,100 yen each

Pins (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct) – 500 yen each

Can Badge (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct) – 400 yen each

iPhone 7 Hard Cases (Team Mystic / Team Valor / Team Instinct) – 2,100 yen each

A comprehensive Pokemon game book will go on sale August 8th (Tuesday) as part of the Pokemon 20th Anniversary celebrations. The book focuses on a side comic that’s been in existence alongside the games since Red and Blue and will include a bunch of comic art, protagonist profiles, world guides, Pokedex information, and other goodies.

There will be a special edition sold only at Pokemon Centers that includes extra artwork.

The normal version will cost 2,700 yen after tax, while the special edition version with extra artwork will cost 5,400 yen.

Last but not least, a special and limited edition Momo-Taro inspired Pikachu plush will be available exclusively at the Okayama Pokemon Store from August 5th (Saturday) while supplies last. This Pikachu, named the Pecha Berry Loving Pikachu, will be sold in conjunction with a local Momo-Taro festival that will take place that same weekend. Momo-Taro himself is a hero from a traditional Japanese story set in Okayama.

That wraps up the news for this week. Stay tuned for a Pokemon Report from this past weekend.

Until next time~
