Friday Pokemon Announcements – New Era, Ojagadesign, Sleeping Bag Kuji Update

Today’s update brought us two collaboration announcements.



New Era x Pokemon collaboration

These hats go on sale in all Japanese Pokemon Centers from August 8th, and each design comes in 3 different sizes (7 1/4 - 57.7cm, 7 3/8 - 58.7cm, 7 1/2 - 59.6cm).




Ojagadesign x Pokemon collaboration

Ojagadesign is a Japanese company that specializes in leather goods (mostly bags and accessories) hand-made in Japan. Pokemon is only one of the many collaborations the company has participated in. Due to the nature of how they make their products, the items are a little pricier but should also be higher quality.





Last but not least, the Ichiban Kuji website updated the Pikachu Sleeping Bag Collection kuji home page! We now have nice quality images of the entire prize list, including more details on the double chance prize, which is a 25 cm Pikachu plush that comes complete with a set of 3 different sleeping bags.

As a reminder, this kuji comes out September 19th!

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Mugs, Plates, Kuji

August tends to be a slow month for Pokemon releases, so it’s not surprising today’s update was fairly lackluster.


Along with the upcoming Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game coming out September 17th (Thursday), this set of plates for the New 3DS will also come out on the same day. Retail price is 2000 yen before price, and the plate is number 63.


Not related to any sort of promo, these mugs will start appearing in Pokemon Centers (and other stores in Japan that stock Pokemon merchandise, such as Kiddyland) during the beginning of August.


Unrelated to the main Pokemon site, Banpresto updated the Pikachu Sleeping Bag Collection ichiban kuji page! The list of prizes in this kuji is no longer available, but we have much nicer photos of the top three prizes.


…as well as an explanation of the plush themselves. Each of the sleeping bags for the top three prizes can be removed from the Pikachu plush. At this time, it’s not confirmed if the smaller mascot plush will be designed the same way, but there is a good chance that due to the size, the Pikachu plush will be attached to his sleeping bag.

The Sleeping Bag kuji starts from September 19th.
