Before we dive into today’s post, a quick reminder:
It seems like yesterday I was posting about the Halloween promotion, and now we are zooming ahead to…
For the past several years, the Pokemon Center has had both a Christmas and a general Winter themed promotion that generally go on sale at roughly the same time. This year is no exception!
Christmas 2017 Plush
There were three main Christmas plush this year: Pikachu (dressed as a Christmas tree), Rockruff, and Alolan Vulpix!
All three plush are pretty adorable (although I’m still salty the Vulpix is the same Pokemon Center pattern they keep reusing!!) Out of the three, Rockruff is definitely my favorite and also in my opinion the cutest! I love his little cape and his little hat!
Christmas 2017 Items
The Christmas promotion had a bunch of cute items, including an adorable mug that I don’t have a photo of but you can kind of see in the background.
Rockruff in his little hat looks especially adorable as a metal charm.
The sheet of stickers were way bigger than I was expecting.
Aside from the plush, I thought the little greeting cards and card holder (pictured third in the set of photos above) were some of the most interesting item and appropriate for the season!
The main plush for the Winter Hide-And-Seek promotion was a cute snowman Pikachu plush, featuring little leaves for cheek spots!
This plush was available both as a plush and a mascot plush.
Winter Hide and Seek
The sketchbook from the Hide and Seek promo is amazingly not Croquis but still adorable!
This release also featured cute greeting cards, albeit with a winter theme vs a Christmas theme.
Also not pictured: a super cute blanket with the main Hide-and-Seek illustration!
The item I was most excited for across both releases was the cookie tin from the Hide-And-Seek promo.
The tin features the main Hide-And-Seek illustration, but that’s not what I loved it at first sight. As previously mentioned, the cookies featured in this cookie tin are Polvorón. It’s a shortbread cookie bathed lightly in powdered sugar and is quite possibly the best Pokemon Center cookie.
Do I highly recommend this cookie tin? Yes. Once you try these magical cookies, you will never be able to go back to regular cookies.
That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!
Friday Pokemon Center Announcements happen tomorrow! Here’s to hoping we get more plush news for November 17th~
