The Pokemon Center decided to release a bunch of things all at once this past Saturday (June 2nd) because causing chaos for their staff is what the Pokemon Center does best.
The festivities for the Pokemon Center’s 20th Anniversary continued with the release of a second batch of goods, including a brand new main illustration.
The highlight for this release was the large and super squishy Shaymin plush!
There wasn’t quite as many items in this release as part 1, however some of the more interesting items included: Pikachu figure keychain, a large can badge, Pikachu memo clip, super cute phone cases (including a shell case for the iPhone X!), and a pen and pencil with a cute Pikachu figure on top.
My favorite item from this release, and the only item I personally got, was this adorable cookie tin. It’s so colorful and cute! And it has cookies!
New Pokemon Center exclusive Eevee plush came out on Saturday!
The three poses are sitting, running, and sleeping.
My personal favorite is the sleeping pose! I didn’t get one, but there is a chance I’ll cave because the more I see it, the cuter it becomes…
A small apparel related release came out on Saturday as well. Dubbed Neon Colors due to the prevalence of, you guessed it, neon colors, the line-up featured hats (not pictured: Pikachu and Charizard).
A very neon backpack and pouch, as well as some other t-shirts.
Last but not least! On the heels of the Pokemon Quest game announcement, a small release of Pokemon Quest related items sort of surprise came out on Saturday. (The Pokemon Center does not mess around)
Along with the larger sized Pikachu plush, there were 8 smaller mascot plushies: Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle, Eevee, Electrode, Slowpoke, and Magikarp.
There was also a couple other non plush items, including t-shirts, a hat, two types of bags, a clearfile set (of course), and more iPhone shell cases (including for the X!)
That wraps up this Pokemon Center Report.
Until next time~
