Pokemon Center Report – Eevee Poncho Promo

Pokemon Center Report – Eevee Poncho Promo

Hello everyone!

We’re back with another review of a recent Pokemon Center Release.

When I saw the little preview banner for the Eevee Poncho promo on the official Pokemon Center website, my heart skipped a beat.

Thankfully (or the opposite if you were hoping for more) the line-up of goods were fairly limited, with the main focus being on…

Plush!

There were 8 plushies in total, with Eevee wearing a cute poncho of each currently existing Eeveelution: Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.

The hoodies can be lowered if you want, although it’s a little tricky to get Eevee’s ears back up into the hoodie ear spaces, so keep that in mind.

There were also 8 matching smaller sized mascot plush for each normal sized plush.

I’m not sure if these hoods can also be lowered, but I would assume it would be a little more tricky just because of the size.

There was also a couple non-plush items (shocking!) including clearfiles (one for each Eeveelution hoodie) and a set of blind packaged tins. There were 9 possible designs, with the 9th being a secret design (spoilers: it’s a design that has all of the Eeveelution ponchos).

There was also 8 different sets of card sleeves, with each pack containing 64 sleeves.

Advertised separately but still a part of the Eevee Poncho series was this super cute Eevee Poncho gacha set, which came out on the same day.

There were 8 possible figures in total and no secret figures.

A good friend of mine was visiting Japan during the Eevee Poncho release and not only sent me pictures from the Mega Tokyo Pokemon Center but also picked up Umbreon and Sylveon poncho plushies for me as a (birthday) gift! They’re both so cute, and the little ponchos are so soft 😍

That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!

Until next time~

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Christmas 2017 + Winter Hide-And-Seek

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Christmas 2017 + Winter Hide-And-Seek

Before we dive into today’s post, a quick reminder:

The official Mikitzune Facebook page is open! Check it out and give it a like~


It seems like yesterday I was posting about the Halloween promotion, and now we are zooming ahead to…

Christmas!

For the past several years, the Pokemon Center has had both a Christmas and a general Winter themed promotion that generally go on sale at roughly the same time. This year is no exception!

IMG_5284

There were three main Christmas plush this year: Pikachu (dressed as a Christmas tree), Rockruff, and Alolan Vulpix!

All three plush are pretty adorable (although I’m still salty the Vulpix is the same Pokemon Center pattern they keep reusing!!) Out of the three, Rockruff is definitely my favorite and also in my opinion the cutest! I love his little cape and his little hat!

The Christmas promotion had a bunch of cute items, including an adorable mug that I don’t have a photo of but you can kind of see in the background.

Rockruff in his little hat looks especially adorable as a metal charm.

The sheet of stickers were way bigger than I was expecting.

Aside from the plush, I thought the little greeting cards and card holder (pictured third in the set of photos above) were some of the most interesting item and appropriate for the season!

The main plush for the Winter Hide-And-Seek promotion was a cute snowman Pikachu plush, featuring little leaves for cheek spots!

This plush was available both as a plush and a mascot plush.

The sketchbook from the Hide and Seek promo is amazingly not Croquis but still adorable!

This release also featured cute greeting cards, albeit with a winter theme vs a Christmas theme.

Also not pictured: a super cute blanket with the main Hide-and-Seek illustration!

The item I was most excited for across both releases was the cookie tin from the Hide-And-Seek promo.

The tin features the main Hide-And-Seek illustration, but that’s not what I loved it at first sight. As previously mentioned, the cookies featured in this cookie tin are Polvorón. It’s a shortbread cookie bathed lightly in powdered sugar and is quite possibly the best Pokemon Center cookie.

Do I highly recommend this cookie tin? Yes. Once you try these magical cookies, you will never be able to go back to regular cookies.

That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!

Friday Pokemon Center Announcements happen tomorrow! Here’s to hoping we get more plush news for November 17th~

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Halloween Time

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Halloween Time

The Pokemon Halloween Time promotion actually went on sale last month, but what better time to report on it then on actual Halloween!

IMG_2423
IMG_2424
IMG_2425

There were three normal sized plushies as part of the 2017 Halloween promotion: Pikachu (dressed as a ghost), Mimikyu (dressed as a scarecrow), and Bewear (dressed as Dusclops).

All plush come with a matching die-cut tag with an illustration version of each Pokemon dressed in their costume.

IMG_2419

There were also four mascot sized plushies! Litten (dressed as Woobat), Rowlet (wearing a pumpkin hat), Popplio (with a pumpkin on his nose!), and Eevee (dressed as Umbreon?)

They’re all adorable!

IMG_2416
IMG_2415

There were also two types of squishy rubber mascots: Ghost Pikachu and Pumpkin Mimikyu! Perfect for relieving stress and also looking cute.

My favorite item was the set of Halloween mugs! These mugs are probably smaller than you’re expecting but they’re so cute!! One cup features Ghost Pikachu and the other Scarecrow Mimikyu.

My girlfriend bought a set to share with me and it’s literally the cutest thing in the world.

IMG_2417
IMG_2418

More neat items! A super cute Ghost Pikachu plush pass case and a little Ghost Pikachu hand towel designed to look like a ghost!

IMG_2408
IMG_2409

More cute stuff! This is actually one pouch with one side featuring Pikachu and the opposite side featuring Mimikyu.

Of course what is any Pokemon Center promotion without metal charms? This promo had two sets of charms, with each set including 4 designs.

There was also a logo pin (of course), cute mis-matched earrings, and a cute little Pokemon Halloween themed memo set for when you want to leave little notes for your friends or to send in the mail.

That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!
