This week’s announcements are few but exciting.
First up – the original Pokemon Center promotion, Pokemon Yurutto, is returning September 29th (Saturday) with Volume 1 of a gacha figure collection.
Yurutto Pokemon Figure Collection Vol 1
The first volume has 6 figures in total: Pikachu, Rowlet, Dedenne, Ludicolo, Croagunk, and Bewear.
1 play will cost the usual 300 yen, and this figures will be sold exclusively through Pokemon Centers.
Next – the very popular Kuttari series, which abruptly disappeared, has abruptly returned! This latest release will drop at all Pokemon Centers & Stores in Japan on September 29th (Saturday).
Kuttari September 29
This volume will have 7 Pokemon in total (Litten, Popplio, Rowlet, Alola Vulpix, Dusk Lycanroc, Wimpod, and Buzzwole) with each Pokemon having two forms: one awake and one asleep.
Each plush will cost 928 yen including tax.
Last but not least! The Pokemon Center has hinted at an original Pokemon Center promotion scheduled for release October 13th (Saturday).
This promotion, called Mofu Mofu Paradise (Fluffy Paradise) is Eevee led and fluffy Pokemon themed, with more information on merchandise coming soon.
That wraps up this week’s announcements!
Until next time~
Pokemon Yurutto Figure Collection Volume 1
Mofu Mofu Paradise Teaser
Volume 11 of the popular Pokemon Time series went on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores in Japan on August 25th (Saturday) to a great amount of fanfare.
This release had a bunch of firsts for the Pokemon Time promo.
Pokemon Time Mascot
First, there were both regular sized plush and mascot plush (pictured here). The regular sized plush (Cosmog, Rowlet, and Mimikyu) come with matching boxes for packaging and display.
The figure straps which up until this point have been a Pokemon Time staple were removed and replaced with gacha figures and blind packaged rubber charms.
Another addition was the popular 3 pairs for $10 Pokemon Center socks, featuring Rowlet, Popplio, Litten, Alolan Vulpix, Midnight Lycanroc, Bewear, Cosmog, and Mimikyu.
On top of that, the Pokemon Center introduced people merchandise into the line-up, with Acerola, Moon, and Lillie featured on some of the main merchandise alongside their Pokemon companions, plus figure versions of all three as gacha prizes and three plush that are currently available for pre-order with a release date in January 2019.
Another first: this year’s release had a side mini promotion with a traditional skajan theme. This side release had it’s own Pikachu plush wearing a Pikachu sized version of one of the four skajan jackets available in human sizes.
Along with the jackets, there were also four matching hats: Raikou, Charizard, Rayquaza, and Pikachu.
Takara Tomy Sleeping Plush
Takara Tomy released a small set of sleeping plush, which included Eevee, Popplio, Litten, and Rowlet. They’re soft and cute!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report.
Welcome to September!
I thought this week would be super boring announcement wise.
Pamphlets started appearing in Pokemon Centers with preview images of this year’s super exciting Halloween promotion!
The plush look so good! My inner (outer?) Halloween fan girl is screaming.
It looks like there will be two parts to this release, which comes out in Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan from September 8th (Saturday): one half is Team Treat and one half is Team Trick (with a more ghostly theme).
There’s three plush per team. Team Treat has Ampharos, Sylveon, and Pikachu. Team Trick has Gengar, Mimikyu, and Pumpkaboo. Each plush will cost 1,944 yen including tax.
There will also be two mascot plush per team. Team Treat has Dedenne and Umbreon, Team Trick has Sableye and Banette. Each mascot plush will cost 1,296 yen including tax.
There will definitely be way more merchandise included in this release, including most likely blind packaged rubber charms because that seems to be a constant theme (and maybe gacha figures? figure straps?) and 99.9% certainty of some sort of cute cookie tin, and maybe mug. I guess we’ll see!
Completely unannounced, these cute Pikachu mascot plush went on sale on the 10th (this week’s releases came out Friday instead of Saturday as Friday was a public holiday in Japan). These mascot plush were released as part of the annual Pikachu Invasion event, and actually all of the designs have surfaced as designs for the mascot Pikachu that are part of the event.
This small release included 5 plush designs: Pink, Yellow, Blue, Green, and Afro. (You can order them here via Japanstuffs.com)
These cute figures, called Cable Bite as that’s what they do, are designed to protect your lightening cables from fraying and making your phone look cute. Available designs include: Pikachu, Eevee, Meowth, Munchlax, Psyduck, and Piplup, and contrary to what I originally thought, they are sold not blind packaged so you can pick exactly which one you want.
Last but not least!
The Pokemon Center finally graced us with photos of most of the items from the up-coming Pokemon Time Vol 11 release. We’re still missing photos of the actual plush, but I guess something is better than nothing (grumble grumble)
There are 8 mascot plush in total: Popplio, Litten, Rowlet, Midnight Lycanroc, Mimikyu, Cosmog, Bewear, and Alolan Vulpix.
The three plush are Cosmog, Alolan Vulpix, and Rowlet, so most likely the plush will be larger versions of the ones pictured here.
Pokemon Time Vol Sample 1
More pictures: Clearfiles, memo note set with boxes, iPhone cases, and pens.
Pokemon Time Vol 11 Candy Tins
Blind packaged jeweled candy tins (not pictured is the secret design, because of course)
Pokemon Time Vol 11 Skajan
Pikachu plush from the Skajan inspired side line.
(Note: The Pikachu plush is wearing a plush sized version of a jacket that’s also available in human form)
Pokemon Time Vol 11 Skajan 2
Some of the other items from the Skajan inspired Pokemon Time side line-up: totebags (Pikachu & Raikou), pouch, and sacoche.
That wraps up today’s post!
Have a great weekend~
Quick reminder: All merchandise on my store is currently discounted for the next few hours (from this posting). Even after the sale period is over, my designs will still be available for purchase on a variety of merch, including t-shirts and mugs. I’ll be adding new designs on a fairly regular basis, so if you like my art, stay tuned for more cuteness!
The popular Terrarium blind packaged figures is coming out with a Pokemon Center exclusive set, featuring Pikachu!
Called “With Pikachu” (Pikachu to Issho) these blind packaged figures will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores around Japan starting August 10th (Saturday). The set has 6 terrarium figures in total and each figure will cost 864 yen including tax.
Pokemon Time is returning for another year in a row with the 11th volume of the popular series, with a release scheduled for August 25th (Saturday).
The three main Pokemon for Vol 11 are Rowlet, Mimikyu, and Cosmog. The 5 secondary (support?) Pokemon are Litten, Popplio, Bewear, Midnight Lycanroc, and Alolan Vulpix. At this point it is unclear if the trainers (Lillie, Acerola, and Moon) will be included in the actual merchandise because…
… there is currently no photos of any of the merchandise. The Pokemon Center announced the release, gave us a list of items, and nothing else. Which is really frustrating!! Be assured that I will post photos of merchandise as soon as I can find them but for now, items of note:
There will be 3 main plush (Rowlet, Mimikyu, and Cosmog)
There will be 8 mascot plush (Alolan Vulpix, Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Mimikyu, Midnight Lycanroc, Bewear, and Cosmog)
There will be no figure charms, but there will be a figure collection gacha set (so far, Rowlet, Mimikyu, and Cosmog are confirmed, but there should be a couple others)
There will be the usual blind packaged candy tins, with 8 tin designs + 1 secret.
There will be socks featuring all 8 Pokemon, similar to the last Pokemon Time release.
The plush especially should be fairly nice quality simply based on the price, but I guess we’ll see for sure when photos surface.
Plush (Rowlet, Mimikyu, Cosmog) – 4,104 yen each
Mascot Plush (Alolan Vulpix, Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Mimikyu, Midnight Lycanroc, Bewear, and Cosmog) – 1,404 yen each

That wraps up everything for this week. Until next time~
