The 24 Jikan collection is a collaboration with the illustrator, Nagano, who has made official Line stickers for Pokemon using the same art style. In fact, as part of the release, a new set of stickers featuring these five main Pokemon (Pikachu, Meowth, Slowpoke, Larvitar, and Croagunk) were made available on the Line store at roughly the same time.

Along with plush and mascot plush, there were also some other cute items like blankets, towels, charms, bags & pouches, stickers, acrylic charms, and mini candy cases that were, of course, blind packaged.

A few weekends back, the Pokemon Center officially released the first Galar / Generation 8 merchandise of Scorbunny, Grookey, and Sobble.

These plush will be the first of many, so if you love the new Pokemon, get ready for more cute things in the very near future!

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Stay tuned for more Pokemon news and photos~

[Pokemon Center Report] Anna Sui

When I originally glanced through the announcement for this collaboration between Pokemon and Anna Sui, I thought the items were pretty standard Anna Sui-esque and seemed alright.

Then I did a double take over the prices.

My personal opinion: I don’t think any of the items are nice enough to warrant the price tag. The design is so-so and is the same on every single item (a pet peeve of mine) and it’s just the Anna Sui rose with a fairly default art style Pikachu. But if you are a die-hard Anna Sui fan and you want to show off that you have brand plus Pikachu, then I guess you will like these items!

The line-up was fairly small and included things like hand towels, pouches, a notebook, bags, and jewelry (not pictured here).

The deco tape set with matching box was pretty cute and decently priced!

[Pokemon Center Report] Pokemon Trainers

Hello everyone!

This week we didn’t have any Pokemon news, so here is a Pokemon Center Report instead~

Hopefully next week will be better


In conjunction with the release of the “Pokemon Masters” mobile game, a special Pokemon trainers based promotion was released through all Pokemon Centers around Japan in September.

The second part of this promo came out August 31st and included plush versions of all the featured trainers plus iPhone cases.

Photos of the plush weren’t published until a few days before the release date, but they all turned out very cute and were immediate hits with most selling out fairly quickly.

The line-up included Red, Green (or Blue depending on your region), Lance, Steven Stone

Elesa, Skyla, Joy, and Hiker.

It’s not very often that the Pokemon Center offers people centered merchandise, so it’s always a pleasant surprise when something like this pops up.

What do you think of the trainer plush? Which one is your favorite?

Until next time!

[Pokemon Center Report] Halloween Festival

The first part of the 2019 Pokemon Center’s Halloween promotion was released across Japan this past weekend (Saturday September 7th).

This release featured three main plush: Pikachu, Lucario, and Celebi. The big seller was hands down Lucario, who sold out fairly quickly (but was then restocked and maybe sold out again). As of this posting, both the Lucario and Pikachu plush are sold out on the on-line store. Lucario is sold out on Amazon as well, although Pikachu is still in stock over there… for now.

There were also four mascot plush of Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and Zorua, all dressed up in cute Halloween costumes.

A neat and unique addition to the line-up was a cute Pikachu jack-o-lantern plush pouch that included candy inside.

Another big seller was the Lucario hoodie, which sold out almost as fast as the plush did. I have to admit, it looks a little goofy when not being worn, but if you love Lucario, this hoodie would be perfect for you.

The t-shirts are pretty cute, too!

We should be getting information on the second part of the Halloween festivities over the next few weeks. Not sure if it will be as cute as this release, but I guess we will see.

Until next time!

Pokemon Plush + Dolls + All-Star Collection [Pokemon Center Report]

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since my last Pokemon Center Report, for which I apologize. I’ve been doing my best to keep up with the weekly news announcements while also dealing with a mystery illness which ended up being a semi-serious kidney infection. Long story short, after two months of struggling and a short hospital stay, I’m finally back to normal and healthy again! Moral of the story: sometimes you should take WebMD seriously when it says “get treated or you will have problems”.

I have a couple Reports in the wings, so get excited for Pokemon Center photos!

Pokemon Center Pokemon Dolls

A new batch of Pokemon Center exclusive Pokemon Dolls were released July 20th.

Along with regular sized Pokedolls, there were also smaller sized mascot plush of the five Pokemon.

Some super cute Pikachu and Eevee plush were released July 27th.

The plush and mascot plush are based on the mascot characters that walk and dance around during the annual Pikachu Outbreak event in Yokohama.

A new collection from San-ei’s All-Star line also came out around mid July. The set included some fan favorites and some random selections (like Staryu). My personal favorite is Spinda who doesn’t have a lot of official plush.

Pokemon Center Eeveelution Socks

Some smaller and un-announced releases during this period include… the Eeveelution plush mascot socks!

Not really practical or comfortable but still adorable, there was a cute sock for every Eeveelution, plus Eevee.

Also some cute Pokemon Center exclusive mascot plush, including Pikachu and Eevee (and Mew, although not pictured)

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report – thanks for sticking around!

Pokemon Surf [Pokemon Report]

Pokemon Surf, unsurprisingly a Pokemon Center promotion all about Pokemon surfing, was released at Pokemon Centers and Stores around Japan July 20th (Saturday).

The four main Pokemon featured in this release were Pikachu, Marshtomp, Slowpoke, and Oshawott.

(I’m honestly surprised they didn’t include Piplup, but maybe even the merchandising team felt Piplup needed a break.)

The star Pokemon were made into surfing mascot plush, metal charms (minus Oshawott)

An item of note is the iPhone shell case which sort of looks like wood.

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report! Stay cool and don’t forget the sunscreen when you go out.
