Pokemon Fit | Sitting Cuties – Gold & Silver Release

Two quick words before I dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report~

First off, big apologizes for the lack of updates lately! The blog is not ending, but two weeks in a row we didn’t get merchandise news from the main Pokemon website and then my main source for Pokemon Center photos was on holiday in the United States.

But we are back so I appreciate everyone’s patience.

Second – the official Zombie Miki store is back in business, with a new look and with more items!

Check it out here

I will be adding items in as quickly as I can. Most of these items are from my personal collection and were bought directly from the Pokemon Center in Tokyo over the course of 7 years. They’re all in near perfect if not perfect condition, but if you have any questions about an item, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me!

On that note, if you notice any issues with the cart or checking out, or if you have a question about shipping prices, also please let me know (you can send me a message through my contact page or send me a DM on Twitter). I am happy to offer discounted shipping for larger purchases 🙂

Also as mentioned, I am selling a good majority of my Pokemon merchandise collections, which includes some bigger items such as the New Years Fennekin sleeping plush, New Years Fennekin face cushion, and a complete set of the Monthly Pikachu collection. The Pokemon I collected over the years include: Fennekin, Meowstic, Litwick, Mew, Clefairy, Raichu, Dedenne, Holiday Pikachu, Sylveon, and Vulpix (Kanto & Alolan versions). If there is a specific item you are looking for, there is a good chance I have it and am selling it, so please ask me directly.

Pokemon Center Pokemon Fit Sitting Cuties Gold Silver Johto

The release of the original 151 Kanto region Pokemon Fit plushies were a great success, but even I was still surprised when the Pokemon Center announced they would be continuing the Sitting Cuties series (the international release name) with all Pokemon featured in Gold & Silver… including every single Unown plus ! and ?

(Pictured here is M for Miki, of course)

Although I couldn’t take pictures of every Pokemon in the release, here are a few notable examples~

Pokemon Fit Gold Silver 1

I love this series so much mainly because the plush are all super soft and the perfect size.

Pictured here: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Sentret, Furret (not to scale), Cleffa, Mareep, Flaaffy, and Ampharos (one of the most popular electric type Pokemon!)

Pokemon Fit Gold Silver 2

I didn’t realize until this release how many Johto region Pokemon I love, and the Pokemon Center did a great job converting everyone’s favorite Pokemon into a super adorable plush form.

I think they did an especially great job with Sudowoodo (which, by the way, is a play on words since he is psuedo-wood-o… in case you didn’t know!)

Also shout out to the second official Dunsparce plush – the first plush was released at Pokemon Centers in Japan in 2013.

Pictured here: Sudowoodo, Politoed, Espeon, Umbreon, Girafarig, Dunsparce, Delibird, Houndour, and Houndoom.

Pokemon Fit Gold Silver 3

Other notable plushies: Smeargle and Miltank (both very cute).

The three legendary beasts came out looking, for the most part, pretty good. My real question is… what animal do you think the beasts are? (I always saw them as dogs)

Pictured here: Stantler, Smeargle, Miltank, Blissey, Raikou, Entei, Suicune.

Pokemon Fit Plush Gold Silver 4

Last but not least – everyone’s favorite recently, most likely because of Pokemon Go: The Tar Family! Tyranitar was definitely one of the big sellers from the release, no joke.

Pictured here: Larvitar, Tyranitar, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi

What was your favorite plush, or plushes, from this release? What did you buy?

Announcement

I will be back in Tokyo near the end of November and will be re-opening my pick-up service for game center prizes, including Banpresto, as well as for the Pokemon Center and other pick-ups by request. I should be able to get most if not all of the prizes listed in this update, as I don’t see any of them selling out quickly. I will be putting up pages with items and prices, but if there is already items you know you want, feel free to get in touch with me (via my website | via Twitter).

What is Banpresto?

Banpresto is a company that manufactures plush, figures, towels, glasses, and other items to be used as prizes for claw machines in game centers as well as kuji prizes. None of these items are designed to be sold directly through stores and cannot be found in Pokemon Centers. Note that the exception to this are Pokemon kujis, however even in this case, you have to win the prizes; you can’t buy the prize you want directly. Typically, you can find these prize items in game centers or sold second hand through auction sites, amazon, or other similar stores.

Most Pokemon releases from Banpresto drop on Tuesday or Thursday, with occasional releases on Friday. Ichiban Kuji generally goes on sale on Saturdays.

Some of the bigger name game centers in Japan include: Adores, Sega, Round 1, Namco, and Taito Station. Not all game center locations stock all prizes. If you’re having trouble finding stock of the item you’re looking for, feel free to send me a message!


Pokemon Sun & Moon Focus Legendaries

The Pokemon Focus series continues into October, as promised, with the start of the “Legendaries” sub-series.

Extra large size Mew (about 40 cm) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from November 27th (Tuesday).

Larger plush versions of Victini, Jirachi, and Celebi (about 30 cm each) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from November 15th (Thursday).

Pokemon Sun & Moon Eevee Psyduck

Two mini releases from the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line, called Poke-Gyutto (Poke-Squeeze) and Poke-Dakko (Poke-Carry Me), will start appearing in game centers from November 8th (Thursday).

Both sets of plush include Eevee and Psyduck, with each plush measuring about 24 cm.
