The month of semi boring August starts off with a hiccup.
Can badges return to the Pokemon Center, with a Hoenn spin. These badges are separated into two batches, with a different set of people characters and their companion Pokemon in each batch. They will cost about 300 yen each, which makes me think they will be gacha prizes, but there is a small chance they’ll be blind packaged. Either way, you can’t choose which badge you get because that’s the Pokemon Center for you.
These badges will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting August 19th (Saturday).
On the heels of last week’s Sapporo Fighter’s collaboration, we have another sports collaboration in the works, this time with the Yokohama DeNA Baystars. This promotion will go on sale starting August 11th (Friday) and will be sold exclusively through the Yokohama Pokemon Center, the Pokemon Center On-Line Store, and the official DeNA Baystars stores.

Hoenn Blind Packaged Badges
Yokohama DeNA Baystars Collaboration
Pokemon Go Plus Deluxe Set
July 22nd had a bunch of plush releases, along with the We Love Pikachu promotion and a couple surprise items that hadn’t been announced.
First up, new Pokedolls were released! Pokedolls is one of the most popular staple of Pokemon Center merchandise and everyone always gets excited for them.
This batch included Mimikyu, Lapras, and Wobbuffet (because there’s always one odd one).
Along with Pokedolls, a fresh batch of Pokemon Center exclusive plush were also released.
The line-up included three Pokemon I never thought I’d see in plush form: Ivysaur, Charmeleon, and Wartortle. Of the three, I think Wartortle came out the cutest.
Along with the three second evolution forms, there was also Alola Exeggutor, Ditto, Slowpoke, Larvitar, and Sandygast, doing a good imitation of the aliens from Sesame Street.
As an aside, the Alola Exeggutor necks are bendy so you can pose them if you so desire.
(Also for those curious, here is the tail!)
New, squishy Pokemon Center mascot plush also came out July 22nd!
This newest batch of mascot plush included Pikachu, Alola Raichu, Ditto, Alola Vulpix, Rockruff, and Bewear.
A super cute Pikachu themed promotion, called We Love Pikachu, came out July 22nd in honor of the Pikachu Invasion Yokohama events that run through summer.
The line-up of merch included a bunch of wearable and everyday use items, like backpacks, shirts, headbands, and even scrunchies with little Pikachu plush on them.
The backpacks are some of my favorite Pikachu backpacks that I’ve seen so far. They’re soft, have little ears, come with tiny Pikachu tail charms on the zipper, and include the little back stripes!
The collection of postcards is a neat item as well, especially if you love the Pikachu costumed characters.
Along with the line-up, there was also a blind-packaged figure collection, featuring a bunch of super adorable Pikachus (and a Mimikyu on a skateboard!)
There was also a bunch of un-announced items that appeared in Pokemon Centers this past Saturday. These were all smaller stationary-esque items, but that doesn’t make them any less cute.
Pictured here from left right and top to bottom:
A collection of colored pens and a pen pouch to store them in, all featuring adorable artwork with Pikachu and Mimikyu.
A Frixion 3 ink erasable pen in two designs: Lots of Pikachu and the same adorable Pikachu & Mimikyu artwork.
An item called a Stickyle, which is a pocket sized foldable pair of scissors also available in two designs: Line Art Pokemon and Pikachu & Mimikyu.
More surprise items!
Correction tape in three different designs: Pikachu & Mimikyu, Eeveelution Pokedolls, and Pikachu in the Forest.
Regular tape! in three different designs: Eeveelution Pokedolls, Pikachu Face, and Pikachu in the Forest.
That wraps up this weekend’s Pokemon Center Report!
What do you think of the new plush? Which is your favorite?
Until next time!
