Pikachu & Eevee Seasons + Ditto Transform! + Super Nerd

Hello everyone!

First off, before we dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report…

I am currently running an End of the Year give-away contest over on my Twitter account!

1 winner will be randomly selected to win 1 Eeveelution (or Pikachu) plush of their choice from the up-coming Mix Au Lait promotion.

To enter, follow me (@zombiemiki) on Twitter and RT this tweet.

Give-away ends Noon EST Dec. 30th (Sunday), 2018 so don’t forget to enter before the deadline. Good luck!

Pokemon Center Seasons Pikachu & Eevee

Although there were no new merchandise announcements from the Pokemon website on Friday, Saturday (December 22nd) made up for it with a bunch of cute releases all at once.

One of which was the Winter version of the Pikachu & Eevee Seasons pair plush series. This plush features Eevee and Pikachu cuddling in a box of Pokemon shaped chocolates!

Next up – a new volume from the very popular Ditto Transform! series!

As with every Ditto Transform release, this set featured 5 Pokemon (Leafeon, Glaceon, Litwick, Misdreavus, and Poipole)

in both plush versions and mascot plush size versions.

(My favorite is of course Litwick!)

Pokemon Center Ditto Transform Figure Collection

Along with the two types of plush, there was also a matching gacha figure collection set with the same five Pokemon!

For the record, Poipole loved me. I played 10 times and 6 were Poipole. Left and came back to try again… another Poipole. Came back another day … three more Poipole!!

(I was able to eventually get a Litwick Ditto thankfully)

Pokemon Center Super Nerd

The big release for this weekend was the Super Nerd promotion…

Pokemon Center Robot Pikachu Super Nerd

… featuring Robot Pikachu!

Along with two sizes of Robot Pikachu plush (normal size and an extra large foot tall version), there was a smaller mascot plush size version plus mascot plushies of Pikachu, Charmander, Alolan Vulpix, and Piplup, all wearing matching scientist coats!

Pokemon Center Super Nerd

The promotion featured some Pokemon Center staples, such as the blind packaged rubber charm collection

There were also a bunch of other cute and original items, including a Robot Pikachu memo note holder, a set of cute acrylic clips, a writable mini size blackboard, eyeglass cases, phone cases, and pens and pencils with small Robot Pikachu charms (among others!)

We got a bunch of new and cute Pokemon Center socks as well as two types of t-shirt designs.

Pokemon Center TCG Super Nerd

The Super Nerd promotion even included the TCG crowd with two original card sleeve designs!

Pokemon Center Eevee Bell Charm

And if all of those expected releases weren’t enough, there were some surprise releases as well!

A set of Eeveelution themed bell charms came out on Saturday, which featured all the Eeveelutions (minus Eevee who already has a bell charm).

Note that they’re called bell charms because the charms are bells!

A set of Pokemon shaped carabiner clips (Pikachu Tail, Eevee Tail, Eevee Face, Gulpin, Pyukumuku, Diglett, and Charjabug) were also released this past Saturday.

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Thanks for looking and (to those who celebrate) Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Pokemon With You + Pokemon Yurutto + Pokemon League + Pikachu’s Closet

Pokemon With You + Pokemon Yurutto + Pokemon League + Pikachu’s Closet

Hello everyone!

This past weekend gave us three releases from the Pokemon Center: one small, two medium, and one big.

Pokemon Center Pokemon With You

Starting off with small – a new and semi unexpected release of a new batch of Pokemon With You charity badges!

This release included: Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur, Vulpix, Kangaskhan, Psyduck, Meowth, and Jigglypuff.

Also as you can see from the photo, they added in some of the older badges that I guess they had lying around in the back room.

Pokemon Center Pokemon League

Next – the Pokemon League medium sized release!

This mini promotion focused mainly on clothing

Pokemon Center Pokemon League

bags, and pouches, as well as two semi fancy Pokemon TCG deck cases.

Pokemon Center Pokemon League

All of the items in the promotion featured this cool logo style design with the Kanto gym badges.

Out of all the items included, the hat and the varsity style jacket were my favorites <3 Pokemon Center Pikachu's Closet

Medium part two – Pikachu’s Closet!

Unlike previous Pikachu’s Closet releases, this one focused on plush versions of Pikachu and Eevee but used as various pouches and bags.

Loading image... Loading image...

The highlight from the release were the plush shoulder bags that are literally Pikachu and Eevee plushies in the Pikachu’s Closet style… but you can wear them over your shoulder!

Also yes, they’re technically “bags” but like most plush bags, there is not much room for stuff within their stuffing. You can maybe slide in some loose change or a couple tubes of chapstick.

Pokemon Center Pokemon Yurutto

Last but not least – the big release!

Pokemon Yurutto Part 2!

This release mainly focused on Pikachu and Eevee

As well as Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander

Along with plush and mascot plush, there were also larger sized squishy cushion plush of Pikachu and Eevee

Smaller sized knapsack style plush pouches

And a cute plush tissue box cover!

There was also a large selection of stationary related items, including three types of stickers, one of which sold out almost immediately (which I still don’t understand but okay!) and plush pen pouches of Pikachu and Eevee.

Also of note: these three cute flat pouches featuring Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander

Two of my favorite items from the promotion!

Not only are the illustrations on the candy jar adorable but the candy is hard sugar with tiny Pikachu and Eevee faces on them!

The two cups are equally adorable.

Pokemon Center Pokemon Yurutto

This promotion gets bonus points for including my favorite: 3 pairs of socks for 1000 yen (1,080 yen with tax)!

Pokemon Center Eevee Cookies

Bonus release.

When I walked into the Pokemon Center at 10 am on Saturday morning, the first thing I saw were these adorable Eevee cookie tins, which are completely new as of this past weekend!

IMG_6384

Loading image... Loading image... Loading image...

The tin contains cookies the Pokemon Center refers to as “Choco-Lake”. Basically, they’re square chocolate cookies that have a piece of milk chocolate on top and then an Eevee head cut-out chocolate cookie on top of the milk chocolate.

It’s delicious and the cookie tin is adorable as well!

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report. If you’re interested in getting any of the items featured in this post, take a look at my Japan Pick-Up Page over here!

151 Dot Sprite + Pikachu & Eevee Accessories

151 Dot Sprite + Pikachu & Eevee Accessories

Hello everyone and welcome to the first Pokemon Center Report since my return to Tokyo!

This weekend was fairly quiet release wise, with only two smaller promotions: the 151 Dot Sprite promo and the mini Pikachu & Eevee accessories promo. (The Center seemed to be filled with a lot of people out and about for the weekend long Pokemon Go Community Day event, including myself!)

Pokemon Center 151 Dot Sprite

The Dot Sprite promotion focused on the original 151 Pokemon from the Kanto region and featured mainly stationary related items plus bags, pouches, and other miscellaneous stuff.

The majority of items have these really cute, simple, and stylish pattern of the 151 Pokemon in dot sprite form.

Items include a laptop/tablet case, pouches of various sizes, wallets (compact and long), and card cases, among others

More neat stuff included a small tin with two types of Pokemon themed paper clips (pokeball shaped or Pikachu shaped), a sticker collection, sticky notes, and a wide variety of multi-colored pens and pencils.

Pokemon Center 151 Dot Sprite

There was also an entire section devoted to lunch related merchandise.

This included mini lunch bags, bento boxes, chopsticks, tupperware sets, and various handkerchiefs and smaller sized towels.

More neat stuff – watches! Keep track of the time and look cool.

Pokemon Center 151 Dot Sprite

What is a Pokemon Center promotion without some sort of blind packaged merchandise?

This release featured dot sprite charms in 10 different patterns: Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Eevee, Ditto, Vulpix, and Mew.

Along with everything else in the promo, there were also these cute pens.

Labeled “Action Pens”, each pen has a little Pokeball on the end you can open and close, with a little Pokemon inside. There were 5 action pens in total: Pikachu, Eevee, Gengar, Ditto, and Snorlax.

Last but not least!

I did not take a picture of all the accessories, since most were kind of boring, but I thought these rings were especially cute.
