A bunch of small releases came out this past week (pushed back from the original release date of October 12th due to the typhoon).
The latest release from the very popular Ditto Transform series came out on the 15th at Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan.
This batch included Mew, Mimikyu, Exeggutor, Wobbuffet, and Muk in both regular and mascot plush sized forms.
Monpoke is a new baby brand designed specifically for parents who are into Pokemon to share their fondness with their children and includes mainly baby and toddler related items, including these super soft plush which are also easily washable.
The set of plush, which is currently available at Pokemon Centers in Japan, include Pikachu, Dedenne, Ludicolo, Mime Jr, and Smeargle. They’re all super cute and make a great gift for people of all ages!
That wraps up this Pokemon Center Report~

In the midst of Golden Week in Japan, the Pokemon Center came out with a bunch of Detective Pikachu merchandise, not coincidentally coinciding with the world-wide release of the Detective Pikachu movie.
The Detective Pikachu merchandise line-up included a life-size Pikachu plush, which is super soft and perfect for cuddling.
There was also a normal sized version and a teenier mascot plush version!
Along with Pikachu, there was also plush versions of Psyduck
… and Ludicolo, who is either adorable in a weird way or one of the weirdest plush I’ve ever seen.
Along with plush in all different sizes, there was the usual Pokemon Center merchandise affair including shirts in three designs, clearfiles, blind-packaged charms and keychains, and a couple other goodies.

Special announcement number three
I added two new designs to both my Threadless and Teepublic stores.
As of this post, the two designs over on Teepublic are currently 30% off and will be for the next 15 hours.
This past weekend was the latest Pokemon Center kuttari plush release plus a cute gacha figure set from the Pokemon Yurutto series.
It has been long enough from the last kuttari release that most people, me included, just assumed we weren’t getting anymore, so it was quite a surprise when the Pokemon Center suddenly brought this new set up, out of nowhere.
Kuttari Awake 1
Kuttari plush are released in sets, with each Pokemon having an awake version
Kuttari Sleep 1
And a sleeping version!
Kuttari Awake 2
This release featured the two Alolan starter Pokemon (Litten, who looks done with everything as usual, Popplio, and Rowlet)
Kuttari Sleep 2
Plus Alolan Vulpix and Dusk Lycanroc
Kuttari Awake 3
And two sort of unexpected choices: Wimpod and Buzzwole
Kuttari Sleep 3
Both of which have pretty adorable sleeping forms.
As mentioned, the Pokemon Yurutto gacha set also came out this past Saturday and included five figures: Pikachu, Dedenne, Ludicolo, Bewear, and Croagunk.
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!
Welcome to October and let’s get spooky~
