April Banpresto Prize Overview

April Banpresto Prize Overview

Hello everyone!

This post will cover all the Banpresto prize releases for the month of April.

As a reminder, the items listed on this post are not available for sale in stores, such as the Pokemon Center. They are only sold from Banpresto for use as prizes in game centers. Everything can be bought from second hand sellers, however, what is sold and at what price is completely up to the discretion of the re-sellers.

April brings us three new series (Pokemon Life With Pikachu, Tsuretette Plush, and Mogu-Mogu Time) along with the return of some favorites (Korotto Manmaru and Kororin Friends) along with the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line.

Pokemon Life With Pikachu starts in April with two different releases.

A set of 2 large Pikachu plush (about 28 cm long) will start appearing in game centers April 5th (Thursday).
From the stock photo, it seems like these plush are made of softer minky fabric vs the usual velboa. It could be an illusion, but hopefully not!

A set of 2 Pikachu plush tissue box cases (about 30 cm long) will start appearing in game centers April 12th (Thursday).

The next new series, Pokemon Tsuretette, will also have two releases in April.
Tsuretette means to bring along, so this is like a Buddy Pokemon themed series.

A set of two larger sized plush (about 24 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 5th (Thursday).
This set includes Pichu and Cubone.

A set of four smaller sized plush (14 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 16th (Tuesday).
This set includes Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur.

The last new series for April is Mogu-Mogu Time (Snack Time).
The extra large Snacky Snorlax plush (about 36 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 26th (Thursday).

Large plush from the Korotto Manmaru series (about 25 cm tall each) will start appearing in game centers April 12th (Thursday).
This set includes Raichu, Voltorb, and Ampharos.

April sees the release of the first four plush from the large Kororin Friends Eeveelution set.

Jolteon, Sylveon, Vaporeon, and Flareon will start appearing in game centers from April 24th (Tuesday).
Each plush should be around 26 cm from head to tail.

Last but not least, there will be two releases from the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line.

A large Poipole plush (about 24 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 5th (Thursday).
An extra large Magnemite plush (54 cm long) will start appearing in game centers April 24th (Tuesday).

That wraps up the exciting Banpresto releases for April!

Until next time~
