Friday Pokemon Announcements – Tokyo DX Pokemon Center Opening

Hello everyone~

As promised, the Pokemon Center gave us more information on the items being sold March 14th (Wednesday) as part of the Tokyo DX Pokemon Center grand opening event.

There are three sub-promotions that will make up this release.

First up is the main Tokyo DX Pokemon Center grand opening promotion. These items for the most part feature the dress-up Pikachus, all of which are wearing Edo-style clothing as a throw-back to old-timey Tokyo.

Most of the items from this set will be sold at all Pokemon Centers and Stores around Japan.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whether you have a special someone in your life or if you are your own special someone, I hope the day was at the very least nice and hopefully full of delicious food (and maybe chocolate!)

I’m currently offering special Valentine’s Day themed sketches over on my ko-fi page. Buy me a coffee, request a Pokemon (or non-Pokemon character), and I’ll show my thanks with a cute and special Valentine’s greeting just for you! This offer will extend into February 15th because why not have two full days of love?

Also as part of Valentine’s Day: The Next Day, I’ll have my Pokemon Center Report up tomorrow (February 15th U.S. time) covering the Pikachu’s Sweet Treats release.

Sending lots of love to everyone! Miki love counts double 💕

Pokemon Center Report – Everyday Mimikyu

Pokemon Center Report – Everyday Mimikyu

February is “Weird Pokemon Promotion” month, and this year’s “Weird Pokemon” turned out to be…

Mimikyu!

(Although I haven’t finished playing Sun & Moon cough) Mimikyu is one of my favorite generation 7 Pokemon, so I was super excited when I heard that there was going to be an entire Mimikyu promotion, and on top of that, the artwork is really adorable!

There were two main plush as part of this release. Number one plush was the 1:1 sized Mimikyu (pictured above).

Fun fact: Mimikyu is about 8 inches tall. His height does not include the fake Pikachu head since it’s actually part of his costume and not the actual Mimikyu.

This cute and original diorama style plush set was also part of the Everyday Mimikyu promotion! Velcro is attached to the bottom of Pikachu and Mimikyu so you can move them around their base and change the display however you want to.

Although I ultimately decided not to get a diorama plush for myself, it was a struggle because this smaller Mimikyu plush is actually one of the cutest out of all the Mimikyu plush in my opinion. I wish I could get just this Mimikyu plush by himself, but who knows, maybe something just as cute if not cuter will come out in the future!

We didn’t get pictures of the Mimikyu mug until a little before release day. Based on the description, which was “mug with lid”, I had a feeling a small Mimikyu sculpture would be included on the lid, and I was right! The mug features all the original artwork from the promo, and an extra cute Mimikyu lid to help keep your coffee hot.

What is a Pokemon Center promo without a cookie tin! The cookies inside are sandwich cookies, one of my favorites (I say as if all cookies aren’t automatically my favorites).

The Pokemon Center has started including two types of phone cases per promo recently, which I’m a fan of since I really don’t like the flip phone cases. They’re generally cute, and in the case of this promo incredibly cute, but also completely impractical for people like me who take photos constantly. With that said, I definitely got one of the soft shell cases for my soon to be new phone at some point. Soon!

Another instant Miki purchase. I love the Croquis sketchbooks, I go through them fairly quickly. How could I possibly bypass such a cute Mimikyu sketchbook? The answer is I couldn’t.

Some other highlights included: stickers, a life size Mimikyu sticker for your wall (not pictured), a tote bag and a matching pouch (pouch not pictured), a longer face towel and a hand towel (hand towel not pictured) … and a watch! Which unfortunately is also not pictured! Why you ask? Because Tokyo Bay is apparently horrendous at stocking anything lately. I don’t think they even had any for sale? At any rate, I did order one! So once I get it, I will of course take pictures of the unboxing and of the watch itself.

This wraps up this weekend’s exciting Pokemon Center Report.

Until next time~
