Lots of announcements from today, so hold on to your butts and get ready for Pokemon merchandise!

Speaking of hype, get ready for a flood of Vulpix merchandise, starting with these adorable poncho Pikachus! This mini sized promotion is actually a part 2 to the Sapporo Center re-opening extravaganza but will focus exclusively on Vulpix and Alolan Vulpix.

New Years is just not Japanese enough without fukubukuro and as luck would have it, lucky bags are returning to the Pokemon Center for the second year in a row! These bags are sold around New Years Day with the contents usually being a mystery. Each bag is generally different in terms of content, making it even more exciting! Last year’s lucky bags sold out fairly quickly and I expect this year will sell out as well. Each bag is guaranteed to have 1 Sun & Moon starter mascot plush + mug cup set, although which one is included in your bag (if you buy one) is unfortunately random.
Each bag will cost 4,000 yen after tax and will go on sale January 1st at Mega Tokyo, Skytree, Tokyo Bay, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, and all Pokemon Store locations. Sapporo, Tohoku, Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Osaka Pokemon Centers will have the bags on sale starting January 2nd.
If that wasn’t enough, we have one more announcement. If you love Pokeballs and were pining for a variety of every day use items with a Pokeball theme, your wish has been granted. This Pokeball promotion will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores around Japan starting January 7th!
