Poke-Maniac Plush Vol 2 + Fuwa-Fuwa Paradise

Hello everyone!

Before we dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report, I have a quick announcement.

Miki Pokemon Halloween Stickers

I finally have my Halloween stickers in hand! There are five new designs for this year including: Umbreon, Houndour, Chandelure/Litwick, Spinda, and Baby Trick-or-Treaters (Riolu, Happiny, and Cleffa)

Stickers can be ordered directly from my on-line store: mikitzune.com/store

This week’s Pokemon Center Report combines two weekends into one, with volume 2 of the Poke-Maniac plush that came out October 20th and Fuwa-Fuwa Paradise (Fluffy Paradise) with two parts: most items were released October 13th with the plush, tissue box covers, and slippers released October 20th.

The first volume from the Poke-Maniac (Kaiju Mania) series did so well that the Pokemon Center continued with a Volume 2 which, as mentioned, went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan October 20th.

This set featured Pikachu dressed as Garchomp, Ampharos, and Snorlax (because lately Snorlax is in every release).

I personally love this series and think all three plush came out super adorable! I extra love angry Pikachu.

Pokemon Center FuwaFuwa Paradise Pikachu Eevee

Next up: Fuwa-Fuwa Paradise part 1! Which went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan October 13th.

The majority of items from the Fluffy Paradise promotion went on sale during this initial release.

Merch line-up included: plates, placemats, postcards, plush pouches, hand towels, extra soft ponchos and super adorable scarves, among other odds and ends.

Part 2 to the Fluffy Paradise series went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores October 20th and included the remaining merch: plush, tissue box covers, and slippers.

The Pokemon included in the plush release were: Pikachu, Eevee, Mareep, Flaaffy, Whimsicott, Arcanine, and Altaria.

Pokemon Center FuwaFuwa Paradise Eevee Mareep

Both the slippers and the tissue box covers were available in Eevee and Mareep designs only.

Mareep ended up being the big seller for this release and quickly sold out at several Pokemon Center locations fairly quickly, but is it surprising? He is both adorable and soft!

Pokemon Center Pikachu plush poncho

As an aside, the human sized versions of the Pikachu and Eevee ponchos from the Pikachu & Eevee Fan promotion were released October 13th.

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!

Until next time~

Pokemon Center Report – Pikachu & Eevee Jewel Cosmetics

Pokemon Center Report – Pikachu & Eevee Jewel Cosmetics

Hello everyone~

This past weekend had one sort of minor release: the Pikachu & Eevee Jewel cosmetics based promotion.

Pokemon Center Pikachu Eevee Jewel

The series featured a bunch of items available in either pink (Pikachu) or blue (Eevee) that were mainly cosmetics related

Items from the line-up included: hand gel and cream, skin lotion, body spray, lip gloss and cream, cute band-aids, brushes and combs, two types of mirrors, and towels.

Pokemon Center Pikachu Eevee Jewel

One item of note are the bath salts, designed to make your bath water smell nice to create a pleasant bathing experience.

Pikachu’s bath salts are cherry blossom scented and Eevee is lilac scented.

Another original item: pouches with mirrors sewn into the inside flap.

Pokemon Center Eevee Cookie Tin

Along with the Jewel release, a Pokemon Center original cookie tin featuring Eevee also came out this past weekend.

Designed to look very similar to a previously released Pikachu cookie tin, this tin should be a Pokemon Center staple so no danger of selling out. The cookies inside are rolled wafer cookies with cream filling – very delicious!

That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report.

Until next time~

Pokemon Center Kuttari Plush

It has been long enough from the last kuttari release that most people, me included, just assumed we weren’t getting anymore, so it was quite a surprise when the Pokemon Center suddenly brought this new set up, out of nowhere.

Pokemon Center Report – Finger Puppets + Squishy Mascot Plush

Pokemon Center Report – Finger Puppets + Squishy Mascot Plush

Hello everyone~

This week’s Pokemon Center Report will be sort of short as we only had two fairly small releases over the past weekend (September 15th).

Pokemon Center Finger Puppets

For years, Bandai has sold smaller sized Pokemon finger puppets. These figures always came paired with candy and a sticker and were found in Pokemon Centers or grocery stores in the candy toy aisle.

For some reason, the Pokemon Center finally decided to get in on this and revealed their own version of these small finger puppet figures. This release was billed as “Volume 1” so we’ll see if they continue on for a volume 2.

This set included: Pikachu, Eevee, Vulpix, Slowpoke, Magnemite, Gengar, Magikarp, Ditto, Snorlax, and a tiny Pokemon Center.

Pokemon Center Mascot Plush Bulbasaur Squirtle Charmander

A set of squishy and smaller mascot plush versions of three popular Pokedoll plush also came out this past Saturday.

The release included Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander. At this point, it’s unclear if this was a random release or if the Pokemon Center will continue releasing more of these smaller mascot plush, but I guess we’ll see.

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Halloween 2018 (Team Treat & Team Trick)

Pokemon Center Report – Pokemon Halloween 2018 (Team Treat & Team Trick)

Hello everyone!

The main (possibly the only) Pokemon Center promotional release for Halloween went on sale this past weekend (September 8th) to much fanfare.

The highlight for the morning was the Pokemon Center’s on-line store mis-listing the blind packaged acrylic and metal charms. Whoever is suddenly in charge of listing items on the on-line store doesn’t seem to know what they’re doing as I’ve noticed at least one major item with multiple mistakes (price, pre-order time period, release date) but at least in those cases, the item wasn’t yet available for actual pre-order. In this case… they listed both the single charms and the complete set of charms for the same price: 540 yen. The boxes of charms should have been listed at a little under 5000 yen, which is kind of a big mistake. Both sets sold out by the 2 minute mark.

I’m not sure if the Pokemon Center honored those orders or not, but they were quickly relisted under the right yen amounts. If people did manage to score boxes of charms for 540 yen, then nice job to the ones who scored big!

The main highlights for this release were the plush and mascot plush.

Mascot plush are smaller sized stuffed animals, usually about 6 inches, that include a clip, chain, or loop so you can attach them to bags. They make great travel companions!

Bonus! This year’s Halloween promotion had not one but two mugs!

Team Treat had a cute mug featuring the main promotional artwork and a lid with a tiny ceramic Joltik.

Team Trick had a mug that looks dark and plain at first, but the main artwork is revealed when the mug is filled with a hot beverage (I love heat changing mugs!)
