Technically our Friday Pokemon announcements came out on Thursday but let’s not worry about small details; on to the merchandise!
First up – Rowlet’s Garden! Posters for this promotion were already up at Pokemon Centers on Thursday morning when the Hokkaido promotion started, creating a nice little teaser until we got more information from the official website announcement.
Rowlet’s Garden features a variety of items that can be used inside and outside of the house (along with a couple wearable items as well) with a very cute and flowery bird pattern, so if you love birds and Pokemon (and bird Pokemon) this promotion was basically made for you! The release date is December 17th at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan.
Next up: Pokemon Villains Part 2! The first part gave us Pikachu dressed as the boss from every Pokemon evil organization, and now with Sun and Moon released, here we have the missing boss: Team Skull Pikachu! Along with both a regular sized and mascot size plush, there will be some new items featuring all of the villainous Chus in their cosplaying glory, including clearfiles, notebooks, and a special card box set.
The release date for this promotion is also December 17th and will be available at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan.
If you were sad about the lack of new t-shirts and pins with a more Alola feel to them, then I have good news and bad news. The good news is: tada! The bad news is: they’re blind packaged so good luck getting the design you want (Surfing Pikachu amirite).
There will be 2 different sets of blind packaged t-shirt designs, with each t-shirt costing 1,944 yen after tax. Pikachu and Luvdisc are part of set A, Marowak and Exeggutor are part of set B. There will be other designs as well not yet revealed.
If t-shirts aren’t so much your style, there will be pins as part of the mini promotion as well. Along with the designs pictured here, there will also be pins made of the “gym leader” badges from Sun and Moon, with each pin costing 432 yen each.
The web page ends the merchandise list with “etc” meaning more to come, so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Finally, we have: card sleeves! These four designs will go on sale December 9th at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan. These designs will be available as half-decks only, with each pack costing 778 yen after tax.

Pokemon Villains Part 2
I’m searching eBay like crazy but can’t find what you’ve labelled as “Mini Can Collection”. Do you know any more specific name for them? My girlfriend and I like to have our earplugs in them 🙂
Ps. I check your blog every once in a while to bask in all of Japan’s Pokemon merch glory. Thank you for giving great insight that’s so hard to find elsewhere 🙂 It always makes me want to go back there…
My friend has them up in her store if that helps! She sells them blind packaged, but if you use them for the tin itself, then that might be more fun.
Here is a link~
The Rowlet Garden Line is sooooooo cute
Do you think it will still be available in April?
I just found your blog and it so cool :3
Considering how popular Rowlet is and the enthusiasm people have shown for this promotion before it’s release, I doubt it will last a month, let alone until April.
But there might be different but equally cute things in April 🙂
