Friday’s Pokemon announcements were a little lackluster but I still have some exciting news!
First up… the exciting news~
A couple years ago, there was a super cute promo featuring Pokemon Tails. How long ago? It featured Minccino so we’re talking Gen 5 era.
Well, the promo is returning December 16th, 2017 with a brand new line-up of cute Pokemon Tails merchandise!
I was hoping the Center would formally announce the promo this past Friday, which they didn’t, so for now all we have is this sneak preview poster that they put up in Pokemon Centers across Japan.
As of right now, these items are confirmed as part of the line-up:
Mascot Tail Plush (Alola Vulpix / Umbreon / Espeon / Sylveon / Mimikyu) – 756 yen each
Mascot Paw Plush (Eevee / Lucario / Alola Vulpix / Bewear) – 648 yen each
Tail Mugs (Espeon / Umbreon / Mimikyu) – 1,512 yen each
Pikachu Tote-Bag – 2,160 yen
Bewear iPhone Case (8/7/6s/6) – 2,030 yen
Pikachu Clock – 3,780 yen
More information coming as soon as we know it!
For anyone interested, I will be doing pick-ups for this promo. My list of items and prices can be seen here.
5108 x Pokemon necklaces return to Pokemon Centers December 9th (Saturday). These necklaces combine Pokemon with phrases and are referred to as “word necklaces”.
The line-up includes:
