This post will cover all the Banpresto Pokemon game center prizes for the month of March.
The I Love Gangar (*internally raging*) line will officially start March 7th with the re-release of the high quality and super soft Gengar plush. Limited (?) amounts of this plush were originally available at game centers back in December 2016, although I use the term limited loosely as these plush were around for a while and didn’t seem to be super in demand.
Along with the large plush, there will also be smaller Gengar plush, similar in size to the Korotto Manmaru series. With three different designs to choose from, these plush will start appearing in game centers from March 9th.
More Alola region plush will be coming out in March as well!
Large versions of Bewear and Mimikyu will be available at game centers around Japan starting March 14th, with each plush measuring roughly 26 cm or a little over 10 inches.
Semi large size plush of Bounsweet and Steenee will be available at game centers around Japan starting March 23rd, with each plush measuring roughly 17 cm or 6.5 inches.
Note that none of these plush will be made of the softer minky fabric.
A new type of prize will also come out in March: acrylic charms! Most Pokemon Banpresto prizes are plush, but not all; we just don’t see them very often, making them extra special. Each charm measures roughly 7 cm or a little under 3 inches and will start appearing in game centers from March 22nd.
A very large Wobbuffet plush will also be available at game centers starting from March 23rd. This plush will be about 40 cm high, or a little under 16 inches.
Finally, the popular PokeMikke line of up until now mostly stationary, pouches, and charms, will be expanding out into plush.
For March releases, there will be two types of PokeMikke plush. One set of mascot plush, measuring at 10 cm or roughly 4 inches each, and featuring Mew, Meowth, Pikachu, and Gengar, and two larger size plush, measuring at 29 cm each, or a little under 1 foot, featuring Pikachu and Ditto.
All the PokeMikke items will start appearing in game centers around Japan from March 16th.
Until next time!
