From the Korotto Manmaru line – more large plush!
This set of plush, featuring Snorlax, Chansey, and Meowth, will start appearing in game centers from March 20th (Tuesday). Each plush will be about 24 cm tall.

Pokemon Sun & Moon

Rounding off this post with the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line of prizes!

A die-cut Ditto blanket will also start appearing in game centers from March 15th (Thursday).
