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~

The usual Friday Pokemon Announcements actually came out on Thursday as Friday (August 11th) was a public holiday in Japan (Mountain Day, for the curious cats out there).
I so naively thought August would be slow and boring merchandise wise. So of course the Pokemon Center pulled a “hold my beer” on me by giving us the return of the Eeveelutions with Eevee Collection: The Return of The End (I’m joking – this release shouldn’t be so bloodthirsty), set to go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting August 26th (Saturday).
The main items from this release is once again the plush; this time we get larger cushion type plushies, all in adorable sleeping poses.
Each plush will cost 4,104 yen after tax, and look incredibly soft so perfect cuddle buddies.
The following Eeveelution themed items will also go on sale alongside the plush:
(Not Pictured) A4 Clearfiles (Eevee / Flareon / Jolteon / Vaporeon / Espeon / Umbreon / Leafeon / Glaceon / Sylveon) – 260 yen each
Campus Notebook Set of 5 Books (A / B) – 800 yen each
Campus Notebook Set of 3 Mini Books ( A / B / C) – 486 yen each
Bic Ballpoint Pens (Eevee / Flareon / Jolteon / Vaporeon / Espeon / Umbreon / Leafeon / Glaceon / Sylveon) – 324 yen each
Hand Towel – 1,404 yen
Mini Plates (Eevee / Flareon / Jolteon / Vaporeon / Espeon / Umbreon / Leafeon / Glaceon / Sylveon) – 756 yen each
And yes, you read all of that correctly: there are no blind packaged items in this release. And the peasants rejoiced!
It only took forever but the Pokemon Center is finally cashing in on plush they can dress-up, specifically Pikachu, because of course.
For this August 26th (Saturday) release, we’ll get the base naked Pikachu plush and two clothing sets. Clothing and Pikachu plush are of course sold separately.
The Pikachu plush will cost 3,780 yen after tax.
The Pajama Set of clothes will cost 3,456 after tax, and the Artist/Autumn Set of clothes will cost 4,104 yen after tax.
Expect more clothes in the future!
Last and certainly not least, a collaboration between Pokemon and the high-class Isetan department store was announced.
There is going to be a special Pokemon Store set-up in the main Shinjuku Isetan location from August 16th (Wednesday) until August 21st (Monday). (See this website for more information – note: Japanese only) There will be a special cafe with Pokemon themed foods and a variety of items on sale that will only be available through Isetan, including bags and pouches, jewelry and accessories, and stationary, among other items.
To celebrate, two items will also go on sale through Pokemon Centers and the On-Line Pokemon Center store (in this case, Pokemon Stores will not receive these items).
A Pikachu plush carrying a paper Isetan shopping bag and wearing a dot sprite scarf featuring original Pokemon artwork that includes an Isetan department store, will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers, the On-Line Center, the Isetan Pokemon store, and the Isetan on-line store from August 16th (Wednesday). Each plush will cost 2,160 yen after tax.
An adult sized version of the Isetan x Pokemon dot sprite scarf will be available for pre-order starting August 16th (Wednesday) from the On-Line Pokemon Center Store, the Isetan Pokemon store, and the Isetan on-line store, with a release date set for end of August. The scarves will cost 21,600 yen each after tax.
That wraps up the main Pokemon Center merchandise news from Thursday!
Are you excited for more Eevees? Which plush are you going to get? (All of them?!)
Until next time~
