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”.

Loading image... Loading image...

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~

[Collaboration] Original Stitch x Pokemon : 151 Button-Up Custom Order Shirts

Mix Au Lait + Mini Pokedolls

Mix Au Lait + Mini Pokedolls

Hello everyone~

I’m playing catch-up with the big Pokemon Center releases from New Years and so here we go with the first two big promotions that coincidentally came out on the first of the year

Starting with…

Pokemon Center Mix Au Lait Eevee

Mix Au Lait!

This promotion is a sequel to the original Saiko Soda promotion, featuring original artwork by F*Kaori (a graphic designer and illustrator). While the first release focused on a soda pop theme, this new one has a mixed canned coffee theme, with each Eeveelution having their own individual flavor and design.

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

The release featured 9 adorable plush: one for each Eeveelution plus Eevee

Loading image... Loading image...

Along with plush sized versions of the previously released Saiko Soda Eevee and Pikachu mascot plush.

I received a couple comments from people on the size of the plushies, which were all bigger than expected (always a nice surprise!)

Pokemon Center Mix Au Lait Eevee

Along with the plush, there were also a set of 9 mascot plush and plush face badges. The badges have safety pins on the back to make them easy to attach to things like bags, clothing, whatever you want.

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

The mascot plush ended up being different poses than the main plush, which was sort of a surprise to me. Between the two designs, I personally prefer the sitting plush (I’m not the biggest fan of the faces on the mascot plush).

On the other hand, the plush face badges were a cute and original idea!

Pokemon Center Mix Au Lait Eevee

A surprisingly popular part of the release were the MEI brand messenger bags. These bags are not the biggest (definitely not big enough to hold a laptop unless it’s an incredibly small one that maybe doesn’t exist and is actually a tablet) but they’re still fairly sturdy, a nice size for every-day items like phones, aforementioned tablets, notebooks, wallets, glasses, etc., and they’re cute!

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

There were 10 designs in total for the bags, with 1 for every Eeveelution plus 1 (not pictured) with Saiko Soda themed Pikachu.

Pokemon Center Mix Au Lait Eevee

Another cute item from the release: pens!

As with everything else mentioned here so far, there was 1 pen per Eeveelution (of course, I got Umbreon for myself!)

Loading image... Loading image...

There were a bunch of group Eeveelution items that are also worth mentioning, including bandaids, a tupperware set, a 2-tier bento box, two types of heat resistant glass mugs, and a pack of assorted stickers (which were more popular than I was expecting).

There were also socks, with designs available of all the Eeveelutions plus Saiko Soda Eevee and Pikachu.

And not forgetting the glass mugs with individual Eeveelution designs that were only available on-line.

Loading image... Loading image...

The cookie tin ended up being slightly smaller than I was expecting, but that’s not a bad thing!

Each tin comes with an assortment of vanilla butter cookies shaped like Eeveelution faces. I’m pretty sure you are guaranteed at least one of each Eeveelution plus one or two extras but I might be wrong. I know I got Eevee, Sylveon, and Umbreon, and honestly that’s all I care about.

Pokemon Center Mix Au Lait Eevee Ramune

Along with cookies, there was a new item. Keeping with the pop theme, the Center sold a set of 9 Eeveelution themed candies. Each package is shaped like a canned drink and contains yummy ramune candy!

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

Last but not least, there were also three gacha releases!

There were two sets from the Mix Au Lait series, with a different Eevee in Volume 1 and 2, plus a separate Saiko Soda gacha set including a third Eevee, plus Pikachu, Oddish, Swirlix, and Litwick.

Pokemon Center Pokedoll

Moving on!

The second release that came out on New Years was the Pokedoll mascot & plush accessory release.

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

The Pokemon featured in this release were: Snorlax, Mew, Gengar, Lapras, and Poliwhirl.

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

Along with the plush, there were also tiny accessories designed to fit these smaller sized Pokedolls, including three types of sleeping bags (Chansey, Weepinbell, and Magikarp)

Loading image... Loading image...

A Pikachu couch and a Snorlax couch

Plus a couple other items including a Pikachu bus, a small train, and a Mimikyu tent!

Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo New Years

On a parting note, shopping on New Years morning at the Pokemon Center was one of the nuttiest decisions of my life. After waiting all night from midnight to get a Lucky Bag, the Pokemon Center was a mob scene with the line for the registers extending out of the store and down the hall. To make it worse, for about an hour or so after opening, half the registers were devoted to people buying Lucky Bags so the register line for regular items wasn’t moving. I jokingly mentioned to Jen from Japanstuffs that it was like being perpetually stuck in purgatory, except it wasn’t funny, and it was more like hell because it was so hot and full of people.

Eventually the line started to move and we did eventually leave (or am I writing this from line still?!) but wow. I thought last year was bad, but it seems every year New Years at the Pokemon Center gets worse and worse, at least regarding their inability to stagger releases and crowd control.

And on that delightful note… that wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Until next time~

Q-Pot x Pokemon Volume 2 (Eeveelutions) + K-Treasure Custom Necklaces

Q-Pot x Pokemon Volume 2 (Eeveelutions) + K-Treasure Custom Necklaces

Hello everyone!

This week’s announcements were… lackluster. But I guess not every week can be Christmas.

Pokemon Center QPot Eeveelution Bag Charm

Q-Pot x Pokemon returns with Eeveelution themed cupcake bag charms!

Unlike the original release, these charms will only be available via pre-order from the Pokemon Center On-Line Store. The pre-order period will run from February 1st (Friday) 10 am until February 28th (Thursday) 11:59 pm. Charms will start shipping out beginning of May.

Each charm will cost 11,880 yen including tax and comes with a cute Eeveelution and sweets themed box and matching paper bag. Charms are limited 1 per design per person.

Pokemon Center U-Treasure Custom Jewelry

K-Treasure is starting a new custom order jewelry service.

Referred to as “Free Writing Pendants”, customers will be able to choose the font, what it says (up to 8 characters – alphabet, numbers, plus the heart character and infinity character), a Pokemon charm (called a “mark” on the website) from 19 available choices, and the material (yellow gold, pink gold, or white gold).

Pokemon Center U-Treasure Custom Necklace

Necklaces are 29,800 yen each including tax and ship out within 4-5 weeks from ordering.

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center announcements!

Stay tuned as I play catch up with the last two weekends of Pokemon Center Reports~
