Pokemon Center Report – Halloween Parade 2015

The Pokemon Center’s first (and quite possibly the most anticipated) of this year’s Halloween promotions came out this past Saturday in Pokemon Centers and Stores around Japan.


Titled “Halloween Parade 2015” (so as not to be confused with any other parades from previous years), the main theme is Pikachu dressed up as various ghost type Pokemon…and Golbat…in preparation for Halloween and trick or treating.


One of the only full sized plush was Pikachu dressed as Golbat, looking very vampiric and even a little goth with his cutie bat top hat.


There was also 4 smaller sized plush, also known as mascot plush, with Pikachu dressed up as Mismagius, Duskull, and Gengar, as well as a smaller Golbat Pikachu. Aside from the Pikachu plush, there was also both a mascot size version of a Pikachu jack-o-lantern…


…and a larger size version of the same design. The Pikachu jack-o-lantern plush was especially popular among collectors, as the Center has released different versions of this similar design throughout the years.


As always, what would a Pokemon Center promotion be without blind packaged somethings. You could try your lack with loose packs, costing about $3 each, or buy an entire box, guaranteeing a full set of 10 different designs of rubber straps.


The Joltik train pass cases were, unsurprisingly, another popular item from the day.


If plush and stationary weren’t exactly your thing, the promotion also had free size Gengar hoodies, Pikachu jack-o-lantern t-shirts in sizes small, medium, and large, and incredibly adorable Drifloon hats.


The Drifloon hats were yet another popular item, and rightly so! Not only is it designed to keep your head warm in winter, but you can use it without the fear of ghostly abduction.


Last but not least, we got a surprise cookie tin! The tin has a bunch of cute ghosties around the sides, including Litwick, Chandelure, Gengar, Mismagias, and Duskull, among others, and contains caramel rusk cookies.


I was especially excited for the Mismagius Pikachu and was not disappointed. This was a great start to the upcoming Halloween season, and we still have Mystery Mansion to look forward to!

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Halloween Parade 2015

It looks like the Pokemon Center will be having 2 separate Halloween promotions this year!


Along with Mystery Mansion (coming out September 19th), Halloween Parade 2015 will be released in all Pokemon Centers around Japan on September 5th.


The theme for this year is Pikachu dressed up in costume, going trick or treating.


There is 1 normal sized plush (Pikachu dressed as Golbat) as well as 4 mascot sized plush (Pikachu dressed as Golbat, Gengar, Mismagius, and Duskull)


Along with the plush, there will also be a Gengar hoodie, t-shirt (not pictured), Drifloon hat, plush badge sets you can attach to your bag


Earrings, phone case, handkerchiefs, pin sets


And what would a Pokemon Center promotion be without metal charms and blind packaged rubber straps? No promotion at all, that’s for sure.

There will also be a memopad, notebook, mug, and a variety of stickers!



Not part of the promotion, but equally as spoopy, these Halloween themed pouches and dice bags will also be available at Pokemon Centers.

Yay for Halloween, the best time of the year!
