Once again, the Pokemon Center has let me down for no official news on the upcoming Tails promotion. But that’s okay because at least we still have a couple small announcements.
First of all… surprise keychain charms!!
These charms were unannounced but will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting tomorrow (December 2nd).
The set includes Alolan Vulpix, Mimikyu, Cosmog, Lunala, and Solgaleo. Each keychain charm set comes with one Pokemon and one little matching item (adorable).
I will be picking these charms up bright and early tomorrow, so if you’re interested, check out my general Pokemon Center pick-ups page here! You can get in touch with me by mail, via Twitter, or through Facebook.
Moving on to the actual announcements…
A new set of Pokemon Center exclusive plush will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan on December 16th (Saturday).
This set will feature Gardevoir, Wailord, and Tapu Lele. Although Wailord looks similar to an earlier release, the pattern of the plush is slightly different, so if you’re a die-hard Wailord fan, don’t miss out!
Gardevoir will sell for 2,160 yen including tax.
Wailord will sell for 4,860 yen including tax.
Tapu Lele will sell for 3,456 yen including tax.
Next up! The popular blind-packaged figure collection from the Pikachu Invasion promo will start to be sold through Itoen vending machines across Japan from December 1st!
There are 10 figures in total. Each figure will come packaged in a glass jar and includes an original can badge, which was not included with the Pokemon Center release. Each figure will cost 800 yen.
Finally we have a new Pokemon Nendoroid coming out… Lana!
Along with her normal expression, she also comes with two extra face plates: a shy smiling face and a closed eye smile face. She also comes with a fishing rod, a net ball, a tiny Wishiwashi, and a small sheet with a picture of Wishiwashi School Form.
As with most Nendoroid releases, there will be two bonus items.
If you order Lana through the Goodsmile store, you’ll get a Water Z-Power Motif Nendoroid base.
If you order Lana through the Pokemon Center On-line store, you’ll get an additional dive ball.
Lana costs 4,800 yen after tax.
The pre-order period runs from December 1st until January 10th, 2018.
Her release date is end of June, 2018.
