August tends to be a slow month for Pokemon releases, so it’s not surprising today’s update was fairly lackluster.
Along with the upcoming Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game coming out September 17th (Thursday), this set of plates for the New 3DS will also come out on the same day. Retail price is 2000 yen before price, and the plate is number 63.
Not related to any sort of promo, these mugs will start appearing in Pokemon Centers (and other stores in Japan that stock Pokemon merchandise, such as Kiddyland) during the beginning of August.
Unrelated to the main Pokemon site, Banpresto updated the Pikachu Sleeping Bag Collection ichiban kuji page! The list of prizes in this kuji is no longer available, but we have much nicer photos of the top three prizes.
…as well as an explanation of the plush themselves. Each of the sleeping bags for the top three prizes can be removed from the Pikachu plush. At this time, it’s not confirmed if the smaller mascot plush will be designed the same way, but there is a good chance that due to the size, the Pikachu plush will be attached to his sleeping bag.
The Sleeping Bag kuji starts from September 19th.
