This past weekend at the Pokemon Center was pretty lackluster, but a couple new things came out.
There was a very small collection of clothing and related items, mainly featuring Pikachu, and aimed at parents with kids.
Each clothing item (t-shirt, hoodie, and jacket) had an adult version and a smaller but matching child version.
Due to some sort of manufacturing error, the jacket release was delayed. At this point, we don’t yet know when the new release date will be, but as soon as anyone knows, that information will be posted.
Along with the apparel, there were also two types of pouches and four tote-bags.
Half the items had this weird houndstooth style pattern, which I realized upon closer inspection is actually made of Pikachu silhouettes. I’m still not a fan, but I guess it’s less random now that I know.
Although only three tote-bags are pictured here, there was actually four – one was the Pikachu houndstooth pattern but smaller sized.
There were also two sets of clothing patches, one with Pikachu and a Pokeball and one with two Pikachu faces.
Not really new but still interesting, the Tokyo DX Center started stocking phone cases and a couple other items from the Edvard Munch art exhibit that happened at the end of 2018.
Phone cases are available with: Pikachu, Eevee, Mimikyu, Psyduck, and Rowlet.
Last but not least! Samples of the up-coming Q-Pot x Pokemon part 2 Eeveelution cupcake bag charms are currently in display at Pokemon Centers in Japan.
Similar to part 1, these charms are cute and food related! But please don’t eat them.
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report.
Until next time~
