The Pokemon Center Report is back with a few previously released promotions!
A brand new Pokemon Center opened near the beginning of July near the famous Skytree tower in Tokyo. With the logo featuring Pikachu and Rayquaza, it should come as no surprise that a lot of the promotional merchandise featured both Pikachu and Rayquaza. (Check out this previous post for more photos on the Skytree promotion)
Similar to the Mega Tokyo location, the center piece of the Skytree Center is a statue with the two logo Pokemon, incidentally perfect for taking photos of and with!
Near the base of the statue is this cute little drawing donated by the Pokemon House tv show cast members.
Part 1 of the Pikachu of the World series came out August 6th and featured Pikachus dressed up in outfits representing China
the United States
This series, which should continue in the near future featuring different countries, includes plush and mascot plush of the five different Pikachus, along with hand towels, cups, and stickers. (See this post for more information)
The newest Ditto Transform! additions also came out August 6th!
As with previous releases, each Pokemon was sold in two sizes: normal and mascot. This batch of Dittos included Raichu? Pichu?
and maybe Vulpix? They’re all cute but I was a little surprised at how flat Raichu was, which I guess shouldn’t be too surprising as I remember having the same complaint with Pikachu when he was released.
As an Umbreon collector, I had been looking forward to Ditto Umbreon since the first of the Eeveelutions came out in part 2 and I was not disappointed.
Last but not least, these pastel petit plush came out a few months back, but I haven’t gotten a hold of photos until now! They look pretty much identical to the previously released petit plushies, but these ones are pastel, so you know, they’re different. This new set includes Dedenne
Wailord and (not pictured) Pikachu.
Hopefully we will get some actual merchandise news later tonight!
Thank you as always to the marvelous Meep for the use of her Pokemon Center photos!
