A couple small announcements from tonight’s Pokemon update!


A set of can badges, featuring Pokemon and Trainers from the Kanto region, will go on sale at Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting August 20th. These badges will sell for 300 yen each and there will be 17 designs in total. Based on the price, I have a sneaking suspicion these will go on sale as gacha prizes, but either way, they will be blind packaged, so good luck getting the design you want!


Along with the badges, these cute collection binders will also go on sale starting August 20th. These binders will sell for 864 yen each.


Use them to neatly organize your collection of charms and badges!


The September Monthly Pair Pikachu plushies will also go on sale August 20th. These cuties are dressed up ready to celebrate Tsukimi. Male Pikachu is holding a traditional decoration of Japanese pampas grass (susuki) and female Pikachu is holding tsukimi dango, delicious rice dumplings that are eaten as part of the festival.

Each plush pair will sell for 2,808 yen.


The JP Pokemon Center On-Line store will be having a special Ditto Campaign during the month of August. Along with the exclusive sale of an extra big size Ditto plush, customers will get a random Ditto Transform! clearfile for every 2,000 yen spent on the on-line store. As with the previous Magikarp postcard campaign, the clearfile designs will change every week.


Week 1 Designs: Pichu, Raichu, Espeon, Umbreon, and Vulpix


Week 2 Designs: Eevee, Jolteon, Flareon, Vaporeon, Gengar, Poliwag


Week 3 Designs: Pikachu, Clefairy, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle

Clearfiles are capped at 10 clearfiles per order.
