This past weekend gave us three releases from the Pokemon Center: one small, two medium, and one big.
Starting off with small – a new and semi unexpected release of a new batch of Pokemon With You charity badges!
This release included: Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur, Vulpix, Kangaskhan, Psyduck, Meowth, and Jigglypuff.
Also as you can see from the photo, they added in some of the older badges that I guess they had lying around in the back room.
Next – the Pokemon League medium sized release!
This mini promotion focused mainly on clothing
bags, and pouches, as well as two semi fancy Pokemon TCG deck cases.
All of the items in the promotion featured this cool logo style design with the Kanto gym badges.
Medium part two – Pikachu’s Closet!
Unlike previous Pikachu’s Closet releases, this one focused on plush versions of Pikachu and Eevee but used as various pouches and bags.
Pikachu Closet Plush Bag
The highlight from the release were the plush shoulder bags that are literally Pikachu and Eevee plushies in the Pikachu’s Closet style… but you can wear them over your shoulder!
Also yes, they’re technically “bags” but like most plush bags, there is not much room for stuff within their stuffing. You can maybe slide in some loose change or a couple tubes of chapstick.
Last but not least – the big release!
Pokemon Yurutto Part 2!
This release mainly focused on Pikachu and Eevee
Yurutto Mascot Plush
As well as Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander
Yurutto Cushion Plush
Along with plush and mascot plush, there were also larger sized squishy cushion plush of Pikachu and Eevee
Yurutto Knapsack Pouch
Smaller sized knapsack style plush pouches
And a cute plush tissue box cover!
There was also a large selection of stationary related items, including three types of stickers, one of which sold out almost immediately (which I still don’t understand but okay!) and plush pen pouches of Pikachu and Eevee.
Also of note: these three cute flat pouches featuring Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander
Yurutto Miki Pick
Two of my favorite items from the promotion!
Not only are the illustrations on the candy jar adorable but the candy is hard sugar with tiny Pikachu and Eevee faces on them!
The two cups are equally adorable.
This promotion gets bonus points for including my favorite: 3 pairs of socks for 1000 yen (1,080 yen with tax)!
When I walked into the Pokemon Center at 10 am on Saturday morning, the first thing I saw were these adorable Eevee cookie tins, which are completely new as of this past weekend!
Eevee cookie tin
The tin contains cookies the Pokemon Center refers to as “Choco-Lake”. Basically, they’re square chocolate cookies that have a piece of milk chocolate on top and then an Eevee head cut-out chocolate cookie on top of the milk chocolate.
It’s delicious and the cookie tin is adorable as well!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report. If you’re interested in getting any of the items featured in this post, take a look at my Japan Pick-Up Page over here!
Also stay tuned for an exciting give-away I’ll be hosting over on Twitter starting this Friday JP time.
Until next time!
