We are back with another Pokemon Center Report focused on a release from Saturday, October 7th.
This release, which I affectionately refer to as the Umbreon & Espeon Cosmetics Promo, featured a bunch of items that were basically cosmetics related. Lots of make-up, plus band-aids (if you hurt yourself while applying make-up) and a pouch (to hold your make-up).
Every item in the line-up had a Pikachu version and an Umbreon & Espeon version, which I thought was pretty neat.
There were two main designs for the Pikachu side: one with Pikachu lying down and looking sassy and the other with sleeping Pikachu.
Both designs are adorable, in my opinion.
My two favorite items from the promotion are pictured here.
1) Gift Set
This small packaged set, available in both Pikachu and Umbreon, comes with a small travel sized hand container of hand lotion and a hand towel.
Hand towels are one of the best ways to get a version of the main promo art work while also having an item that’s useful in every day life, and I love hand lotion!
2) Memo Pad Set
A little off to the side is the heart-shaped memo pad set. The heart shaped case holds equally adorable heart shaped pieces of paper that you can write little notes on and give to your friends (or enemies if that’s how you roll)
More items, this time from the Umbreon & Espeon side!
Another of my favorite items from the line-up: the band-aids! Each set of band-aids comes with five different designs, so you can heal your scratches and stay fashionable and cute at the same time.
As a side note, all of the cosmetics items (lip cream, hand cream, lip gloss, etc) are rose scented.
The promotion also featured four different face masks shaped like Pikachu, Mimikyu, Pyukumuku, and Alola Vulpix!
These sheet masks are pretty popular currently and are used to help moisturize your face.
Each pack comes with 1 face sheet, which is infused with some sort of skin moisturizing serum.
To use: wash your face first. Remove the face sheet from the package (be careful as the mask can drip a little). Line up the eye, nose, and mouth holes with your eyes, nose, and mouth and place it carefully on your face. Leave the mask on for about 15-30 minutes and then remove to reveal beautiful and soft skin!
That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!
Stay tuned for Eevees: The Pocho-ing~
I’m here with a special post: original Miki merchandise!
I’m still in the process of setting up an actual store (I swear I’ll have it done before I leave for Japan!) but in the meantime, I have original acrylic charms, stickers, and postcards for sale.
Four acrylic charm designs in total (Mimikyu, Dusk Lycanroc, Sylveon, and Alola Vulpix). Each charm is roughly 1.5 inches and one-sided.
Each charm costs $8 USD + shipping.

I’m offering charm & sticker sets for Mimikyu, Dusk Lycanroc, and Alola Vulpix. Each set comes with 1 acrylic charm and 1 matching sticker.
Each charm & sticker set costs $10 USD + shipping.

In my attempts to catch up with a bunch of releases that came out all at once, here is part one covering new Pokemon Center plush, card sleeves, Magikarp Jump mini promotion, and a couple miscellaneous items.
First up: new Pokemon Center exclusive plush!
I should probably say “new” as the majority of plush in this batch came out about two years back or so with the release of Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.
With such a large number of Pokemon, many of which don’t have official plush, I’m not sure why the Center gave us plush of Pokemon that literally get plush all the time, but the Pokemon Center does what it wants. With that said, the plush are still cute!
Our very first official plush of Dusk Lycanroc came out a few weekends ago!
Along with this adorable Rowlet plush that comes with a little backpack to carry him around in.
Last weekend, two surprise and unannounced Pokemon Center plush were released under the rader: shiny Mimikyu and the second official plush of Dusk Lycanroc!
Two Friday’s ago, a bunch of new Pokemon card sleeves were released along with the release of the “Awakened Heroes” and “Ultra-Dimensional Beasts” booster packs.
A matching deck case featuring beautiful Silvally artwork also went on sale the same Friday.
Four schedule books for 2018 went on sale last weekend also with little fanfare and no previous announcements.
The two Pikachu books are made of leather and the price for both reflect it, as they’re double the price of the Ditto Transform! and Eeveelution books. All of them are cute!
Last and certainly not least, a very small amount of official Magikarp Jump merchandise came out two weekends back. Not pictured here is the blind packaged acrylic charms. (I have two on the way and I’m excited to see which fish patterns I pull!)
Stay tuned for more exciting Pokemon Center Reports!
Until next time~
