As I expected, the Pokemon Center finally gave us the official merchandise list for this year’s Halloween promotion… but not many pictures yet again. Although at least we did get pictures of all the plush and a couple extras (unlike when Pokemon Time was originally announced…)
As mentioned previously, the Halloween promotion will drop September 8th (Saturday) at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan.
Halloween 2018 Plush
This year’s promotion doesn’t have quite as extensive a selection as past years however on the other hand we have 6 plush and 4 mascot plush, which is a lot for a Pokemon Center promotion.
The Halloween promotion is divided into two parts: Team Treat (with Pikachu) and Team Trick (with Mimikyu).
The three main plush for Team Treat are Pikachu, Ampharos, and Sylveon. The three main plush for Team Trick are Mimikyu, Pumpkaboo, and Gengar.
Each plush will cost 1,944 yen including tax.
The two mascot plush for Team Treat are Umbreon and Dedenne. The two mascot plush for Team Trick are Banette and Sableye.
Each mascot plush will cost 1,296 yen including tax.
Along with the plush, there will also be two sets of A4 size clearfiles, with 3 designs per set (410 yen including tax per set).
Cookie tins, with one design for Team Treat and one for Team Trick (972 yen including tax per tin)
Halloween 2018 Cookies
Each tin comes with print cookies – cookies with Pokemon printed on them. As probably assumed, the Team Trick cookie tin will have cookies featuring Team Trick Pokemon, and same for Team Treat.
Halloween 2018 Charms
There will be two types of blind packaged charms – each will cost 540 yen including tax for a single charm.
Team Treat is acrylic charms and has 9 charm designs in total (Banette, Sableye, Gengar, Bewear, Pumpkaboo, Misdreavus, Mimikyu, Rotom)

The final photos for the Pokemon Time Vol 11 release coming out tomorrow (Saturday August 25th) surfaced so better late than never!
First up: three surprise plush!
For the first time in Pokemon Time history, the Pokemon Center is selling human plush.
Pre-orders for Acerola, Lillie, and Moon will start August 25th (Saturday) at 10 am and close September 30th (Sunday) at 11:59 pm JP time.
Plush are scheduled to ship out January 2019.
Each plush costs 4,104 yen with tax.
Along with plush, the three trainers will join their companion Pokemon (Cosmog, Rowlet, and Mimikyu) for the Pokemon Time gacha, making two more firsts for the Pokemon Time series.
As I sort of expected, the three main Pokemon Time plush look pretty much the same as their mascot plush counter parts… simply bigger.
We also finally can see the very original skajan inspired hats from the skajan portion of the Pokemon Time release!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center announcements.
