Pokemon Fit | Sitting Cuties – Gold & Silver Release

Two quick words before I dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report~

First off, big apologizes for the lack of updates lately! The blog is not ending, but two weeks in a row we didn’t get merchandise news from the main Pokemon website and then my main source for Pokemon Center photos was on holiday in the United States.

But we are back so I appreciate everyone’s patience.

Second – the official Zombie Miki store is back in business, with a new look and with more items!

Check it out here

I will be adding items in as quickly as I can. Most of these items are from my personal collection and were bought directly from the Pokemon Center in Tokyo over the course of 7 years. They’re all in near perfect if not perfect condition, but if you have any questions about an item, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me!

On that note, if you notice any issues with the cart or checking out, or if you have a question about shipping prices, also please let me know (you can send me a message through my contact page or send me a DM on Twitter). I am happy to offer discounted shipping for larger purchases 🙂

Also as mentioned, I am selling a good majority of my Pokemon merchandise collections, which includes some bigger items such as the New Years Fennekin sleeping plush, New Years Fennekin face cushion, and a complete set of the Monthly Pikachu collection. The Pokemon I collected over the years include: Fennekin, Meowstic, Litwick, Mew, Clefairy, Raichu, Dedenne, Holiday Pikachu, Sylveon, and Vulpix (Kanto & Alolan versions). If there is a specific item you are looking for, there is a good chance I have it and am selling it, so please ask me directly.

Pokemon Center Pokemon Fit Sitting Cuties Gold Silver Johto

The release of the original 151 Kanto region Pokemon Fit plushies were a great success, but even I was still surprised when the Pokemon Center announced they would be continuing the Sitting Cuties series (the international release name) with all Pokemon featured in Gold & Silver… including every single Unown plus ! and ?

(Pictured here is M for Miki, of course)

Although I couldn’t take pictures of every Pokemon in the release, here are a few notable examples~

I love this series so much mainly because the plush are all super soft and the perfect size.

Pictured here: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Sentret, Furret (not to scale), Cleffa, Mareep, Flaaffy, and Ampharos (one of the most popular electric type Pokemon!)

I didn’t realize until this release how many Johto region Pokemon I love, and the Pokemon Center did a great job converting everyone’s favorite Pokemon into a super adorable plush form.

I think they did an especially great job with Sudowoodo (which, by the way, is a play on words since he is psuedo-wood-o… in case you didn’t know!)

Also shout out to the second official Dunsparce plush – the first plush was released at Pokemon Centers in Japan in 2013.

Pictured here: Sudowoodo, Politoed, Espeon, Umbreon, Girafarig, Dunsparce, Delibird, Houndour, and Houndoom.

Other notable plushies: Smeargle and Miltank (both very cute).

The three legendary beasts came out looking, for the most part, pretty good. My real question is… what animal do you think the beasts are? (I always saw them as dogs)

Pictured here: Stantler, Smeargle, Miltank, Blissey, Raikou, Entei, Suicune.

Last but not least – everyone’s favorite recently, most likely because of Pokemon Go: The Tar Family! Tyranitar was definitely one of the big sellers from the release, no joke.

In the midst of Golden Week in Japan, the Pokemon Center came out with a bunch of Detective Pikachu merchandise, not coincidentally coinciding with the world-wide release of the Detective Pikachu movie.

Pokemon Center Detective Pikachu

The Detective Pikachu merchandise line-up included a life-size Pikachu plush, which is super soft and perfect for cuddling.

There was also a normal sized version and a teenier mascot plush version!

Along with Pikachu, there was also plush versions of Psyduck

… and Ludicolo, who is either adorable in a weird way or one of the weirdest plush I’ve ever seen.

Along with plush in all different sizes, there was the usual Pokemon Center merchandise affair including shirts in three designs, clearfiles, blind-packaged charms and keychains, and a couple other goodies.

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

The next time we get a big bundle of releases all together it will be surrounding this summer’s Pokemon movie, “Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution” (get hyped!)

Pokemon Dolls + Meltan & Melmetal

Pokemon Dolls + Meltan & Melmetal

Hello everyone!

March 23rd (Saturday) brought some good news and some potentially surprisingly bad news.

Let’s start with bad first because why not.

Saturday morning dawned as usual and people all over the world got ready to open up the Pokemon Center’s On-Line store to get some adorable pokedolls. Except… suddenly, the Japanese store was declining all non-Japanese issued credit cards!

Seeing the trend and also contacting the Pokemon Center’s customer service directly led to the news that the On-Line Center’s list of cards it accepts is now much smaller than it previously was. The website says that “some foreign cards might not work” I guess to cover their butts because there are still some cards that work as well as before. If you were buying directly from the Center’s On-Line store and using a shipping service to get your stuff, you might need to find an alternate work-around because this might not work anymore.

So that was exciting!

The big seller for the day was Scolipede. This adorable centipede stole everyone’s hearts, but how can you not fall for that little bug face? He was the first to sell out on-line and by Sunday was sold out basically everywhere, with his re-sale price currently around quadruple his shelf price.

Along with Scolipede, the other Pokemon included in this batch of Pokedolls included Lucario, Zeraora, Psyduck, and Jigglypuff. I personally am not the biggest fan of how Lucario turned out (his nose is a little weird) but Psyduck makes up for it by being cuter than usual!

Tiny Scolipede mascot was just as popular as his bigger brother, also selling out pretty quickly (again, how can you resist that little bug face!)

And of course there were also mascot size versions of Zeraora, Lucario, Psyduck, and Jigglypuff as well. These mascot plush are extra squishy and soft (and tiny so extra adorable).

Along with the Pokedolls, a small Meltan & Melmetal themed promo also came out March 23rd.

Most of the items were stationary related, so maybe not excited, but it also included the first official Pokemon Center plush for both Meltan and Melmetal (who I affectionately refer to as Beefcake Meltan)

Pokemon Center Takara Tomy Meltan Plush

The maybe not quite as adorable Takara Tomy Meltan plush also came out recently. (He kind of looks like he’s been stung by bees, but he is doing his best)

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Until next time~

Tokyo DX Anniversary + Kyoto Center + Easter

Tokyo DX Anniversary + Kyoto Center + Easter

Hello everyone and welcome back to another exciting “Pokemon Center Report”!

Pokemon Center Tokyo DX Anniversary

First up – the Tokyo DX Pokemon Center celebrated it’s first year anniversary this past Thursday (March 14th).

Both the Center and the adjoining Pokemon Center cafe are currently in full cherry bloom with tons of pink blossom decorations everywhere, with the highlight being an extra adorable sakura afro Pikachu.

Along with the decorations and limited food menu over at the cafe, four Pikachu cosplay plush are currently available exclusively at the Tokyo DX Center location: Sakura Afro Pikachu, Ninja Pikachu, Sumo Pikachu, and Kabuki Pikachu.

For those curious as to the theme of the Pikachu plush: Nihonbashi (where the Center is located) was originally the downtown center of Edo-Tokyo and still retains a lot of historical significance, along with being a major commercial and business neighborhood. Consequently, the theme for the Tokyo DX Center is very Meiji-era influenced. If you like traditional Japanese imagery as well as Pokemon, definitely consider making the Tokyo DX Center one of your must stops if visiting Tokyo!

Pokemon Center Kyoto

Speaking of traditional Japanese merchandise, the Kyoto Center’s re-opening campaign started this past Saturday (March 16th)!

The Pokemon Center in Kyoto moved to a new location and as part of the re-opening, all Centers around Japan sold Kyoto inspired merchandise, including these two Pikachu boy and girl plush dressed in traditional kimono and drinking the most Japanese drink: green tea.

Along with the plush, the promotion also included: charms, keychains, several TCG related merchandise (card sleeves and a playmat), acrylic charms (blind packaged, of course), pouches, towels, a plethora of stationary, and other cute items!

For this release, the only merchandise exclusive to the Kyoto Center were the mascot plush versions of the two main Pikachu plush.

Pokemon Center Easter Spring

Last but not least! The Pokemon Center’s Easter promotion for 2019 went on sale this past Saturday alongside the Kyoto release.

Similar to last year’s Easter release, the two main plush featured Pikachu and Eevee with flower crowns, although this year’s plush have significantly different patterns and the crown contents differ as well. I personally prefer last year’s designs better.

Last year, there were only mascot plush of Pikachu and Eevee, but this year along with the two mains, we also got Plusle, Minun, and Buneary, all sporting adorable flower crowns.

As with all promotions, there was more than just plush. The line-up included: a bunch of stationary related items, pouches, bags, towels, and the popular blind packaged acrylic charms… in Easter eggs! Because of course.

Pokemon Center Pikachu Eevee Flowers

Along with the Easter line-up, there was also an unannounced set of merchandise with a pastel flowery theme featuring both Pikachu and Eevee called Pikachu & Eevee Flowers. The designs are more subtle so if you like cute things you can use in your everyday life, as well as Pikachu and Eevee, then this was clearly made for you.
