We’re back with another review of a recent Pokemon Center Release.
When I saw the little preview banner for the Eevee Poncho promo on the official Pokemon Center website, my heart skipped a beat.
Thankfully (or the opposite if you were hoping for more) the line-up of goods were fairly limited, with the main focus being on…
There were 8 plushies in total, with Eevee wearing a cute poncho of each currently existing Eeveelution: Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, Glaceon, and Sylveon.
The hoodies can be lowered if you want, although it’s a little tricky to get Eevee’s ears back up into the hoodie ear spaces, so keep that in mind.
There were also 8 matching smaller sized mascot plush for each normal sized plush.
I’m not sure if these hoods can also be lowered, but I would assume it would be a little more tricky just because of the size.
There was also a couple non-plush items (shocking!) including clearfiles (one for each Eeveelution hoodie) and a set of blind packaged tins. There were 9 possible designs, with the 9th being a secret design (spoilers: it’s a design that has all of the Eeveelution ponchos).
There was also 8 different sets of card sleeves, with each pack containing 64 sleeves.
Advertised separately but still a part of the Eevee Poncho series was this super cute Eevee Poncho gacha set, which came out on the same day.
There were 8 possible figures in total and no secret figures.
A good friend of mine was visiting Japan during the Eevee Poncho release and not only sent me pictures from the Mega Tokyo Pokemon Center but also picked up Umbreon and Sylveon poncho plushies for me as a (birthday) gift! They’re both so cute, and the little ponchos are so soft 😍
That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report!
Until next time~

October Pokemon Center Exclusive Plush
Umbreon & Espeon Cosmetics
I made it through the weekend, didn’t get trapped in the Atlanta airport, and it’s another Pokemon Friday with a new batch of up-coming merchandise announcements.
Tonight’s merch related stuff was fairly quiet but we have two up-coming treats to look forward to.
First up, the Putitto x Pokemon gacha series continues with Vol 2: This Time The Spoops Are Real. This set will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting September 30th (Saturday), with the usual price of 300 yen per play.
The set will have 7 figures in total with no secrets. The 7 Pokemon are Haunter, Mimikyu, Gourgeist, Litwick, Drifloon, Banette, and Sableye.
Second but not any less exciting… a new batch of Pokemon With You charity badges featuring the new super adorable artwork! These new badges will also go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting September 30th (Saturday). Each badge will cost 270 yen after tax and 100% of proceeds will go towards supporting children affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.
This batch will include Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Mew, Eevee, Vaporeon, Jolteon, Flareon, Snorlax, Lapras, Dragonite, and Raichu.
Which one is your favorite? There are so many cute ones, it’s hard for me to pick, but that Mew with the heart tail is calling to me, along with Eevee!
Last but not least, these four 2018 schedule books are set to hit the shelves tomorrow (Saturday, September 16th) Japan time.
The two Pikachu schedule books are made of leather and cost 2,160 yen each after tax.
The Eeveelution and Ditto Transform schedule books are made of not leather material and the price reflects this with each book costing 1,080 yen after tax.
(You can order these books and more over at Japan Stuffs, including the Pokemon Yurutto goods that come out tomorrow!)
I have a small backlog of Pokemon Center Reports to put up, hopefully soon, so stay tuned!
Until next time~
