Pokemon Sumie + Fluffy Little Pokemon

Pokemon Sumie + Fluffy Little Pokemon

Hello everyone and welcome to another exciting “Pokemon Center Report”!

Two Pokemon Center promotions came out February 19th in Japan – a traditional Japanese stylized promo, called “Sumie Retsuden” (Ink Brush Portraits) and a more cutesy sort of Valentine’s Day themed promo called “Fluffy Little Pokemon”.

The Pokemon Sumie promotion was unique in a lot of ways. Not only did the art have a very distinctive style, but along with some of the more common Pokemon Center promo items, there was a bunch of not often seen stuff as well.

One of my favorites were the tea tins. There were three different tins with three different teas: green tea, high quality green tea, and Japanese black tea. I can’t say how good the teas themselves are, but the tins are very nice and are probably worth the price just by themselves.

Two more unique items from the promo: coasters and small plate sets!

The promo also included: t-shirts (one for each of the Pokemon featured), can badges, three phone cases, a couple different types of pouches, and stickers

In keeping with the Japanese style theme, there were also foldable fans, blind packaged mini foldable screens, door cutains, and a bento box in two designs. It was a really nice promo!

Moving on! As mentioned, along with the Pokemon Sumie promo, we also got this year’s Valentine’s Day promo (maybe?): Fluffy Little Pokemon. In direct contrast to Pokemon Sumie, the style here is more typical Pokemon Center.

Fluffy Little Pokemon had two mascot plush: a boy Pikachu and a girl Pikachu. There were no matching plush.

Along with the mascot plush, there were a bunch of typical Pokemon Center items including…

Decoration tape, pass cases, towels (hand and face sizes), handkerchiefs, a tote-bag, two types of pouches, and a wallet.

On a final note: I can’t say for certain that this was the Valentine’s Day promo, but there wasn’t really anything else that clearly was for Valentine’s, so either way, it’s kind of disappointing. Last year we had the really cute bakery themed promo and I was hoping for something equally cute this year. Maybe we’ll get something for White Day!

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Until next time~
