Pokemon Fit / Sitting Cuties
Following the success of the initial Pokemon Fit release, which included plush versions of every single 151 Pokemon from generation 1, the Pokemon Center is continuing into the Johto region with plush versions of every single generation 2 Pokemon.
Pokemon Fit (or Sitting Cuties as named by the US Pokemon Center site) are smaller plush designed to Fit in your hand. They make a great addition to any collection, and the series has in a lot of cases created plush for Pokemon who up until now haven’t had official plush available or in other cases any official merchandise at all.
Each plush retails for 1,188 yen.
The list of plush in this release starts with Chikorita and ends with Celebi. It also includes every single Unown from A to Z plus ! ?

Before we dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report, I have a quick announcement.
I finally have my Halloween stickers in hand! There are five new designs for this year including: Umbreon, Houndour, Chandelure/Litwick, Spinda, and Baby Trick-or-Treaters (Riolu, Happiny, and Cleffa)
Stickers can be ordered directly from my on-line store: mikitzune.com/store
This week’s Pokemon Center Report combines two weekends into one, with volume 2 of the Poke-Maniac plush that came out October 20th and Fuwa-Fuwa Paradise (Fluffy Paradise) with two parts: most items were released October 13th with the plush, tissue box covers, and slippers released October 20th.
Poke Maniac Volume 2
The first volume from the Poke-Maniac (Kaiju Mania) series did so well that the Pokemon Center continued with a Volume 2 which, as mentioned, went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan October 20th.
This set featured Pikachu dressed as Garchomp, Ampharos, and Snorlax (because lately Snorlax is in every release).
I personally love this series and think all three plush came out super adorable! I extra love angry Pikachu.
Next up: Fuwa-Fuwa Paradise part 1! Which went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan October 13th.
The majority of items from the Fluffy Paradise promotion went on sale during this initial release.
Merch line-up included: plates, placemats, postcards, plush pouches, hand towels, extra soft ponchos and super adorable scarves, among other odds and ends.
Part 2 to the Fluffy Paradise series went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores October 20th and included the remaining merch: plush, tissue box covers, and slippers.
The Pokemon included in the plush release were: Pikachu, Eevee, Mareep, Flaaffy, Whimsicott, Arcanine, and Altaria.
Both the slippers and the tissue box covers were available in Eevee and Mareep designs only.
Mareep ended up being the big seller for this release and quickly sold out at several Pokemon Center locations fairly quickly, but is it surprising? He is both adorable and soft!
As an aside, the human sized versions of the Pikachu and Eevee ponchos from the Pikachu & Eevee Fan promotion were released October 13th.
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!
Until next time~
