Pokemon World Market

Pokemon Center Pokemon World Market

Pokemon World Market, an original promotion featuring merchandise based on each of the 7 Pokemon regions, went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan June 29th (Saturday).

Along with the usual stuff that tends to come out with Pokemon Center releases (like clearfiles and pouches), not only did this promotion have some adorable artwork but there were a bunch of original and interesting items as well.

There were two plushies as part of the Pokemon World Market: a mascot size version of Lillie’s Clefairy doll

And a much larger extra squishy Pyukumuku cushion.

Unsurprisingly, the Pyukumuku cushion was one of the more popular items from the release, being the first item to sell out.

There was also a plush Alolan Exeggutor pen, possibly one of the more unique items from this promo.

Although the dice pouch is a Pokemon Center staple, this time they made it look like a Magikarp. When the drawstring is tightened and closed, the pouch becomes round and the Magikarp looks more like a fish.

Another unique item was the Moo Moo Milk shaped pouches. Designed to look like the iconic Moo Moo Milk bottles… but a pouch!

Along with the pouches, there were also stainless steel thermoses that were also designed to look like Moo Moo Milk bottles.

There were a bunch of more “normal” Pokemon Center items as well, although still very cute as they feature the promotional artwork!

Also of note is this super cute wallet, with different designs on both sides.

Last but not least

Although this release did not have a gacha, it did have an original blind packaged set of figures. Each set corresponds to a different Pokemon region and includes mini figures, such as teeny Substitute Plush dolls. No matter which set you get, it will be adorable, so there is no losing!

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Until next time~
