The Pokemon Center either gives us no news or dumps all the news possible on us all at once. Friday was one of those barfing up news days!

A beautiful Lillie (and Cosmog) figure from Kotobukiya is scheduled for release February 2018.
Pre-orders for this figure will start June 17th (Saturday) and run until August 31st (Thursday) at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan, as well as the Japanese On-Line Pokemon Center. As a note, the final product will be colored.
Plush Pikachu Cases
Two plush Pikachu cases were announced that will both go on sale June 24th (Saturday).
One plush is actually an iPhone 7 phone case. The other plush is designed to fit over tissue boxes to make them softer and cuter.
Last and certainly not least, these adorable bell charms were released as a semi-surprise Saturday June 10th. I call them bell charms because each charm has a little bell inside, meaning if you attach them to your phone or bag, your presence will never be a surprise!
This release features: Pikachu, Rowlet, Popplio, Litten, Mimikyu, Bewear, Cosmog, and a pokeball.
I will have more pictures from this weekend’s very small release up tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Until next time~
