The month of semi boring August starts off with a hiccup.
Can badges return to the Pokemon Center, with a Hoenn spin. These badges are separated into two batches, with a different set of people characters and their companion Pokemon in each batch. They will cost about 300 yen each, which makes me think they will be gacha prizes, but there is a small chance they’ll be blind packaged. Either way, you can’t choose which badge you get because that’s the Pokemon Center for you.
These badges will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting August 19th (Saturday).
On the heels of last week’s Sapporo Fighter’s collaboration, we have another sports collaboration in the works, this time with the Yokohama DeNA Baystars. This promotion will go on sale starting August 11th (Friday) and will be sold exclusively through the Yokohama Pokemon Center, the Pokemon Center On-Line Store, and the official DeNA Baystars stores.

A special Pokemon Go Plus Deluxe Set will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan for 9,234 yen starting August 9th (Wednesday).
This set includes:

Hoenn Blind Packaged Badges
Yokohama DeNA Baystars Collaboration
Pokemon Go Plus Deluxe Set
Nothing too big in tonight’s announcements, but better than nothing!
These two traditional Ukiyo-e Pokemon prints will be available for pre-order, in limited quantities, from the official Pokemon Center On-Line store. The pre-order period starts October 15th at 10 am and ends December 18th at 11:59 pm. There will only be a pre-determined number of prints sold, and pre-orders will close once that number is reached, even if it’s earlier than December 18th.
Each print will be 48,600 yen after tax, and prints will be shipped out at the beginning of March.
Next up, this limited edition Pokemon Sun & Moon 2DS will go on sale in Japan starting from December 8th.
The system comes with:
* 1 Nintendo 2DS
* 1 New Nintendo 3DS AC Adaptor
* 1 touchpen
* 1 4GB SDHC memory card
* 6 AR cards
* A starter guide
* An instruction manual
* A warranty
The system does not come with either Sun or Moon pre-installed, so if you’re interested in this system, you’ll have to buy the games separately. The system costs 10,584 yen after tax.
This super cute card will be given out free to all participants of the Pokemon Card Game 20th anniversary festival. There are currently two dates at two different locations: October 10th in Nigata prefecture and October 23rd in Aichi prefecture.
Last but not least, official pictures of the prize line-up for the next Pikachu Nebukuro Collection Ichiban-Kuji have gone up, and they all look adorable! As usual, 1 play is 620 yen, and the line-up includes a last one prize and a double chance prize.
