Hello everyone and welcome to October – the best month in the year!
First up, special announcement number one
My birthday is October 30th!
Send me birthday coffees via ko-fi.com and I’ll draw you a sketch of your choice! Just leave a note with what you want me to draw :3
Special announcement number two
Bumping my Patreon!
Not only do you get to see original charm and sticker illustrations as I design them, but you get advance notice of items added to my sticker/charm store, get to see commissions I can’t share publicly, and for postcard tier patrons, a cute monthly Miki original postcard sent straight to you from me with a handwritten note.
Special announcement number three
I added two new designs to both my Threadless and Teepublic stores.
As of this post, the two designs over on Teepublic are currently 30% off and will be for the next 15 hours.
This past weekend was the latest Pokemon Center kuttari plush release plus a cute gacha figure set from the Pokemon Yurutto series.
It has been long enough from the last kuttari release that most people, me included, just assumed we weren’t getting anymore, so it was quite a surprise when the Pokemon Center suddenly brought this new set up, out of nowhere.
Kuttari Awake 1
Kuttari plush are released in sets, with each Pokemon having an awake version
Kuttari Sleep 1
And a sleeping version!
Kuttari Awake 2
This release featured the two Alolan starter Pokemon (Litten, who looks done with everything as usual, Popplio, and Rowlet)
Kuttari Sleep 2
Plus Alolan Vulpix and Dusk Lycanroc
Kuttari Awake 3
And two sort of unexpected choices: Wimpod and Buzzwole
Kuttari Sleep 3
Both of which have pretty adorable sleeping forms.
As mentioned, the Pokemon Yurutto gacha set also came out this past Saturday and included five figures: Pikachu, Dedenne, Ludicolo, Bewear, and Croagunk.
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!
