This blog post will cover all the Banpresto prize plush announced for June.
The summer Pokemon movie is just around the corner, and the movie related merchandise is starting to pick up steam. We should continue to see movie merch until the end of summer.
First up, we have the first in a series of Pikachu plush wearing different Ash hats, which is the big gimmick for the summer movie.
Original hat Pikachu and Hoenn Pikachu will start appearing in game centers from June 22nd (Thursday).
Sinnoh and Unova hat Pikachu will start appearing in game centers from June 27th (Tuesday).
All of the Pikachu plush measure roughly 24 cm tall.
3 bath towels will also start appearing in game centers from June 27th (Tuesday).
Each towel measures roughly 60 cm by 120 cm and the three designs are Ash’s Pikachu, Lots of Pikachu, and Ho-oh.
June will also give us two releases from the Pokemon Sun & Moon extra large plush line-up.
The Pokeball and Ultra Ball plush, both measuring roughly 35 cm tall, will start appearing in game centers from June 27th (Tuesday).
Extra large Psyduck, measuring in at about 37 cm tall, will also start appearing in game centers from June 27th (Tuesday).
The Pokemon Tea Party series continues into June with two sets of plush.

Last and certainly not least, we have some new Kororin Friends and Korotto Manmaru plush to look forward to!
Bringing Korotto Manmaru and the summer movie together, Pikachu, Lucario, Piplup, and Luxray will start appearing in game centers from June 27th (Tuesday).
Each plush measures roughly 12 cm tall.
From the Kororin Friends series, we have a large Bulbasaur plush (measuring roughly 26 cm long) that will start appearing in game centers from June 13th (Tuesday).
The smaller sized Treecko, Torchic, and Turtwig plush will also come out June 13th (Tuesday), with each plush measuring about 12 cm.
That wraps up the new plush for June!
I have a feeling we’ll be seeing at least one new Lycanroc plush for July or August.
Until next time~
I’ve seen images of the Kororin friends appearing on ebay and there was a Totodile one as well. You don’t happen to know if Japan Stuffs might have them also up for order, do you? <X3
Hello! If we’re talking about the same plush, that Totodile doesn’t come out until August. Maybe get in touch with Japan Stuffs closer to the release date.
Ah, thank you. Will do.
Oh, I spot a shopping cart up there. Are you planning on offering pick ups yourself as well, Miki? =3
I’m working on getting my store up and running! I won’t be back to Japan until the end of the year so I won’t be able to help with these specific prizes, but hopefully in the future.
