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~
