Sorry for the radio silence!
Last week, we didn’t get any Pokemon merch news on the official Pokemon site. Today, along with the update came a semi big design change to the site, so maybe they were focused on that? Either way, this week’s announcements were not too exciting, but we still got some cute stuff.
First up: pastel petits! The third batch of this popular series, going on sale October 8th, brings us more pastel cuties.
This newest batch will include Eevee, Lapras, Latias, Latios, Pichu, and Shaymin and each plush will be the usual price of 972 yen after tax.
(I’m definitely going to need an Eevee for my collection!)
Pokemon is having another clothing collaboration with the Japanese fashion company, Spinns, which goes on sale September 30th (today/tomorrow!)
The clothing line-up isn’t extensive, and includes a lot of crop-top sweaters (not a huge fan) but the designs are cute and the prices are semi reasonable.
Designs for the sweaters include: Ditto, Eevee, Gengar, Mew, Pikachu, and Snorlax and cost 3,887 yen after tax each.
There will also be two types of Pokeball themed skirts; one white and red and one black, with each skirt also costing 3,887 yen after tax.
Finally, as mentioned in this post, staring October 1st, go to any Pokemon Center in Japan and purchase 5 card expansion packs to receive 1 Team Rocket themed half-size playmat for free – while supplies last!
On a final note, the first batch of Sun and Moon plush come out this weekend! As mentioned previously, this batch will include the three starters (Litten, Popplio, Rowlett) and the two legendaries (Lunala, Solgaleo); I will share pictures as soon as I can get them!
