Detective Pikachu Movie Merch | Latios & Latias Journeys

Hello everyone!

This week, I finally realized why the Pokemon Center was once again late with announcements (daylight savings, whoops). On one hand, I’m glad I remembered that Japan is now 13 hours ahead instead of 14. On the other hand, thanks for nothing, daylight savings. What have you ever done for me?

For those wondering what happened last week, we can’t blame it entirely on daylight savings; there really wasn’t anything announced merchandise wise. We are, however, back in business this week, although with only one main announcement!

March Banpresto Pokemon Prize Overview

March Banpresto Pokemon Prize Overview

Hello everyone!

Mikitzune Twitter Giveaway

As a quick announcement, I am currently running a giveaway over on Twitter! The giveaway is for 1 plush from the up-coming Ditto Transform promotion and the contest runs until 8 pm EST February 22nd (Friday). To enter, simply follow my Twitter account (@zombiemiki) and retweet this tweet. Entrees are open worldwide. Good luck!


The official Banpresto page updated with their list of Pokemon prizes for March. Much like everything else Pokemon related, there isn’t too much coming out, but more than zero, so that’s still okay.

What is Banpresto?

Banpresto is a company that manufactures plush, figures, towels, glasses, and other items to be used as prizes for claw machines in game centers as well as kuji prizes. None of these items are designed to be sold directly through stores and cannot be found in Pokemon Centers. Note that the exception to this are Pokemon kujis, however even in this case, you have to win the prizes; you can’t buy the prize you want directly. Typically, you can find these prize items in game centers or sold second hand through auction sites, amazon, or other similar stores.

Most Pokemon releases from Banpresto drop on Tuesday or Thursday, with occasional releases on Friday. Ichiban Kuji generally goes on sale on Saturdays.

Some of the bigger name game centers in Japan include: Adores, Sega, Round 1, Namco, and Taito Station. Keep in mind, not all game center locations stock all prizes.


Banpresto Pokemon Plush Prize Pokemon Sun & Moon

There are two extra large plush coming out in March.

From the Mogu-Mogu Time (Snack Time) line, an extra large Gengar plush (measuring about 31 cm) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 7th (Thursday).

From the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line, an extra large Marill plush (measuring about 30 cm) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 21st (Thursday).

Banpresto Pokemon Plush Prize Pokemon Sun & Moon

The general Pokemon Sun & Moon line will also have two releases for large size plush.

Blissey and Chansey, each measuring about 23 cm, will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 14th (Thursday).

A set of baby Pokemon (Pichu, Togepi, and Smoochum – all measuring about 26 cm) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 26th (Tuesday).

Banpresto Pokemon Plush Prize Korotto Manmaru Kutsurogi Time

From the Kutsurogi Time (Relax Time) series, a set of two large plush (Bulbasaur and Charmander – each measuring about 26 cm) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 7th (Thursday).

The featured color for March from the Korotto Manmaru Colorful series is blue. The set includes Dragonair, Lucario, and Vaporeon (each measuring about 24 cm) and will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 19th (Tuesday).

That wraps up the Banpresto prizes for March!

Until next time~
