The second volume of the popular Pokemon Fit Pokemon plush series was released in Japan November 16th (Friday), the same day that Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu & Eevee dropped.
The Pokemon Fit plush series included every single Pokemon from the original 151 list over two release dates – volume 1 plush went on sale back in July (see this post for Pokemon Center photos), and the remaining 121 Pokemon were included in this volume 2 release.
I love the Pokemon Fit series. The style is incredibly cute, the size is perfect, and it gives a chance for some Pokemon who might never have gotten plush to have their first plush.
I unfortunately don’t have photos of every single Pokemon included in this release, but here are some highlights from over the weekend!
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 1
Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Caterpie, Butterfree, Pidgey
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 2
Rattata, Raticate, Raichu, Nidoran♀, Nidoran♂, Clefairy, Clefable
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 2
Vulpix, Zubat, Gloom, Persian, Psyduck, Growlithe, Bellsprout
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 3
Ponyta, Rapidash, Gastly, Haunter, Onix, Krabby
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 4
Chansey, Tangela, Goldeen, Seaking, Mr Mime, Scyther, Jynx
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 5

Happy Friday the 13th everyone~
I was really hoping we would get news this Friday on the yearly Pokemon Christmas promotion as the Christmas promos always come out in November and it’s now almost mid October. First, the Pokemon site decided to update two hours late and then only gave us one news release related to merch. Maybe next week!
In the mean time…
Not really a surprise if you keep up with the Pokemon Fan magazine, but the Ditto Transform series will continue from October 21st through to the following weekend with more Ditto related items coming out at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan October 28th (Saturday – also two days before my birthday!)
This release will feature a bunch of Ditto related items that you can use throughout your day, including bags, pouches, a hoodie, and other neat things.

All Stars February 2018
Unrelated to Ditto, the official San-ei Twitter account tweeted earlier with preview images of Pokemon plush scheduled for release in late February 2018.

On a parting note, my original charms, stickers, and postcards are still available for purchase!
Check out this post for more information.
Until next time~
Welcome to the New Year everyone!
First of all, a semi big announcement. I have a new photographer for while I am in America: the amazing and super nice Jen from Japanstuffs! Not only does she take photos of plush, but she sells them, too (and other stuff). So if you’re interested in buying stuff from Japan, including anything and everything from this post and any of my future posts, check out her site.
Moving on: Pokemon!
The New Year is bringing the return of the Pokedoll series, which has been dormant for about two years or so. The first three Pokedolls of the new series were released early through the Tokyo Skytree Pokemon Center location only a day or two before January 1st, but if you missed out on this pre-release, do not worry as they will be available everywhere in Japan starting January 14th.
The three Pokedolls were I guess unsurprisingly the three starters: Litten
The dolls seem to be a little bigger than the previous Pokedoll incarnation, and because of this, the price has once again increased (they are now 1,296 yen after tax).
Pokemon decided to change the tags once again, and “Pokedoll” is now “Pokemon Dolls”.
What do you think of the new Pokedolls? Are you happy with the changes or ambivalent? What Pokemon are you excited to see maybe in Pokedoll form?
The big promotion for New Years was…Spring! Spring! Spring! This series looked super adorable from the preview photos and the real items are somehow even more adorable.
