We got two new promotion announcements on Friday, both of which involve a lot of Pikachu (and Pyukumuku!)
First up – Alola Festival! This Alolan centric promotion will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting July 15th (Saturday). Of note are the several Pyukumuku items that aren’t pictured (yet), such as the plush dice bag and the tissue box cover. If you love Alola, and if you especially love Pyukumuku, then this promotion was made for you.
Alola Festival Plush
The Alola Festival promotion has 1 main Pikachu plush and four mascot plush (Pikachu, Pyukumuku, Alola Exeggutor, and Alola Marowak).
The Pikachu plush will cost 1,944 yen after tax. Mascot Pikachu plush will cost 1,296 yen and the other three mascot plush will cost 1,080 yen each after tax.
Incidentally, check out this adorable Pikachu plush! Love his outfit? You can wear it, too, as all of the clothing items, including both shirts and the hat, will be available in actual human size person form as well!

In honor of the annual Pikachu Invasion event held in Yokohama, Pokemon Centers and Stores across Japan will sell a variety of Pikachu-themed merchandise starting July 22nd (Saturday).
There are a bunch of neat items included in this promotion, including but not limited to a bunch of clothing items with Pikachu ears or tails attached and a little combo fan and water bottle to keep you cool in the summer heat!
The Pikachu promotion will feature a blind packaged figure collection (not gacha for once!) Each blind box will cost 500 yen including tax, with 1 box of 10 figures costing 5,000 yen. There will be 10 figures in total which means there are 2 others not pictured here that will be included as part of the set.
Another pretty unique part to this promotion: shoulder plush! These plush are mascot plush that come with an extra part so you can attach each plush to your shoulder and carry it around with you.
This batch of plush includes Pikachu (of course), Ditto, Mew, and Rowlet, with each plush costing 1,800 yen including tax. Admittedly, the inclusion of Ditto is a little odd. His shape is a little awkward for shoulders, but I’m sure there are Ditto fans out there who are happy.
