I wasn’t expecting anything too exciting tonight, so I was surprised in a good way by what we got.
From the Pokemon TCG front, the next booster set has been announced and is scheduled for release August 3rd (Friday).

Last and not least! A surprise release for tomorrow (July 21st – Saturday) went up on the Pokemon Center’s official On-Line Store earlier today.
These tiny plush are sold blind packaged in pokeballs, which means that no, you can’t pick which Pokemon you get unless you’re really good at guessing weights to Pokemon while holding a sealed Pokeball.
Each plush is 864 yen including tax, and this set (the second from the series) includes 10 possible Pokemon: Umbreon, Espeon, Voltorb, Ditto, Pikachu, Pichu, Mareep, Chikorita, Totodile, and Cyndaquil.
