Pokemon World Market, an original promotion featuring merchandise based on each of the 7 Pokemon regions, went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan June 29th (Saturday).
Along with the usual stuff that tends to come out with Pokemon Center releases (like clearfiles and pouches), not only did this promotion have some adorable artwork but there were a bunch of original and interesting items as well.
There were two plushies as part of the Pokemon World Market: a mascot size version of Lillie’s Clefairy doll
And a much larger extra squishy Pyukumuku cushion.
Unsurprisingly, the Pyukumuku cushion was one of the more popular items from the release, being the first item to sell out.
There was also a plush Alolan Exeggutor pen, possibly one of the more unique items from this promo.
Although the dice pouch is a Pokemon Center staple, this time they made it look like a Magikarp. When the drawstring is tightened and closed, the pouch becomes round and the Magikarp looks more like a fish.
World Market Pouch
Another unique item was the Moo Moo Milk shaped pouches. Designed to look like the iconic Moo Moo Milk bottles… but a pouch!
Along with the pouches, there were also stainless steel thermoses that were also designed to look like Moo Moo Milk bottles.
There were a bunch of more “normal” Pokemon Center items as well, although still very cute as they feature the promotional artwork!
World Market Stuff
Items included hand towels, mini bath towels, pouches, tote-bags, pass cases, stickers, postcards, and a couple other knicks and knacks.
Wallet World Market
Also of note is this super cute wallet, with different designs on both sides.
Last but not least
Although this release did not have a gacha, it did have an original blind packaged set of figures. Each set corresponds to a different Pokemon region and includes mini figures, such as teeny Substitute Plush dolls. No matter which set you get, it will be adorable, so there is no losing!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!
Until next time~

Friday’s Pokemon announcements were a little lackluster but I still have some exciting news!
First up… the exciting news~
A couple years ago, there was a super cute promo featuring Pokemon Tails. How long ago? It featured Minccino so we’re talking Gen 5 era.
Well, the promo is returning December 16th, 2017 with a brand new line-up of cute Pokemon Tails merchandise!
I was hoping the Center would formally announce the promo this past Friday, which they didn’t, so for now all we have is this sneak preview poster that they put up in Pokemon Centers across Japan.
As of right now, these items are confirmed as part of the line-up:
Mascot Tail Plush (Alola Vulpix / Umbreon / Espeon / Sylveon / Mimikyu) – 756 yen each
Mascot Paw Plush (Eevee / Lucario / Alola Vulpix / Bewear) – 648 yen each
Tail Mugs (Espeon / Umbreon / Mimikyu) – 1,512 yen each
Pikachu Tote-Bag – 2,160 yen
Bewear iPhone Case (8/7/6s/6) – 2,030 yen
Pikachu Clock – 3,780 yen
More information coming as soon as we know it!
For anyone interested, I will be doing pick-ups for this promo. My list of items and prices can be seen here.
5108 x Pokemon necklaces return to Pokemon Centers December 9th (Saturday). These necklaces combine Pokemon with phrases and are referred to as “word necklaces”.
The line-up includes:
Mimikyu, Popplio, Rowlet, Litten, Cosmog, Electric Pikachu, Alola Exeggutor, Pyukumuku, Unknown x 2, Bewear, Alola Vulpix, and three extra Pikachu designs.
Each necklace will retail for 4,104 yen after tax.
Last but not least, the single for the Mezase Pokemon Master – 20th Anniversary – song featured in the 2017 summer Pokemon movie will go on sale November 29th (Wednesday). There will be two versions: the normal version (2,160 yen) and the first press release (2,700 yen).
