I had a feeling we might get more plush news tonight, and that otherwise things would be fairly quiet. Well, I was right with plush, and it was fairly quiet, but we did get two surprise announcements, one of which I’m really excited about.
First up, the next batch of brand hew Pokemon Center exclusive plush were announced!
The Pokemon in this newest group include Mareanie, Charjabug, Corsola, and Meowth, and will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting June 24th (Saturday).
A Marshadow plush will also go on sale starting July 1st (Saturday).
Plush will cost 1,620 yen each after tax, except for Mareanie which will cost 2,160 yen after tax.
Next up (and what I’m especially excited for): the Pokemon With You charity line returns in can badge form and with a face lift! Instead of the usual stock art, Pokemon With You is now using brand new original artwork, and it’s too adorable for words.
The line-up for this (hopefully first) batch includes: Pair Pikachu, Litten, Rowlet, Popplio, Victini, Jirachi, Alola Vulpix, Rockruff, Pyukumuku, Tapu Koko, Cosmog, and Charizard.
Each badge costs 270 yen after tax and as with all Pokemon with You merchandise, all proceeds go toward helping children affected by the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake.
In TCG and movie news, a special Ho-oh GX Jumbo Card Set will go on sale at movie theaters, 7-11, several department stores, and Pokemon Centers and Stores starting July 1st (Saturday). The set includes a jumbo sized Ho-oh GX card, a promo Ash’s Pikachu card, and three packs each of “Fighting Rainbow” and “Light-Consuming Darkness” booster packs.
Each set will cost 1,188 yen after tax.
Last and certainly not least, a new promotion called Pikachu in the Forest, featuring a variety of home and kitchen goods, will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting July 1st (Saturday)!
