We got a wide variety of announcements today, so let’s start off with the most exciting news first.
Ditto Transform Part 2!!
For those (like me) who thought this was a one time mini set, in comes part 2 proving us all wrong.
This second set of Ditto faced Pokemon will, like the first set, be available in two sizes: normal and mascot, and the line-up features Eevee, Flareon, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Poliwag, and Gengar.
Part 2 of the very popular Ditto Transform series will go on sale May 7th.
Normal size plush will retail for 1,296 yen and mascot size plush will retail for 864 yen.
A new Pokemon Center will open at the base of the Tokyo Sky Tree on July 6th (Wednesday). The Center, hereby known as “Pokemon Center SkyTree Town” features Mega Rayquaza on the logo alongisde Pikachu.
Using the other brand new Pokemon Center promotions as references, it’s a pretty sure bet this Center opening promotion will feature Mega Rayquaza poncho merch, so if you like Mega Rayquaza, stay tuned for more information!
