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!
Detective Pikachu Movie Merch
There are couple items that started distribution March 21st (Thursday) in conjunction with ticket presales for the “Detective Pikachu” movie that opens in movie theaters in Japan May 3rd (Friday).
These items are designed to be sold alongside movie tickets and are exclusive to various stores.
