Hello everyone~

Rainbow Rocket landed in Pokemon Centers across Japan (including the on-line store) on Saturday January 20th.

The promotion featured a bunch of neat items, including stickers, clip sets, pens, phone cases, and a set of gacha figures (see this post for a full list), however the highlights were definitely the Pikachu Dress-Up plush and surprise legendary (plus Goliosopod) Pokemon plush.

Unlike the previously released Secret Teams dress-up Pikachu, these Pikachu plush are dressed up specifically as each secret team’s leaders.

There are 7 Pikachu plush in total: Giovanni, Archie, Maxie (not pictured), Cyrus, Ghetsis, Lysandre, and Guzma.

Along with the 7 Boss Pikachus, the promo as featured 9 legendary Pokemon plush (and Golisopod, who I guess is an honorary legendary now)

These plush are not Pokedolls although they sort of have a Pokedoll feel.

I’m not going to lie; some are pretty derpy. Maybe it adds to their charm?

The 10 plush are: Mewtwo, Groudon, Kyogre, Dialga, Palkia, Zekrom, Reshiram, Yveltal, Xerneas, and as mentioned Golisopod.

Unrelated to Rainbow Rocket, two new (?) Pokemon Center exclusive plush came out January 20th as well.

New being questionable as Pichu isn’t really new at this point anywhere, but Typhlosion was a surprise.

On January 27th, a small Pikachu based promotion called Pikachu Living & Dining was released.

The promo features a bunch of items that can be used in the home and the kitchen, including tons of bowls, towels, laundry related merch

and cute Pikachu slippers (plus a couple others!)

That wraps up the last of the releases for January.

Welcome to February everyone~
