Pokemon Center Report – Ditto Transform!

Pokemon Center Report – Ditto Transform!

Before we delve into the Ditto Transform Pokemon Center Report, some words from the management!

First – as a reminder, I’ll be back in Japan mid November for about two months. During that time, I’ll be re-opening my Pokemon Center pick-ups, Banpresto pick-ups, and any other pick-ups you might desire service! I’ll be opening a Facebook to make an easier way to communicate about pick-ups I’m doing as well as merch in general. As soon as it’s created and running, I’ll advertise it here, so get excited!

I’ll also be (hopefully! fingers crossed!) finally opening a small on-line store for charms and miscellaneous. This will also be advertised once it’s open!

Finally, my birthday is coming up (October 30th woooo!) Want to show your appreciate for my blog and my art?

Check out my Patreon!

Consider buying me a coffee (or several coffees!) through my ko-fi page

Tweet cute pictures of Minccino at me (@zombiemiki) on Twitter! (I love Minccino).

Brand new additions to the very popular Ditto Transform! Pokemon Center series went on sale Saturday, October 21st.

Like previously released sets before, this most recent set featured Ditto trying to transform into 5 different Pokemon and each Pokemon had a normal size and mascot size plush version.

The five Pokemon in this batch were Sableye, Lapras, Dragonite, Magikarp, and Omanyte.

These plush are deceptively tiny, making the mascot plush even tinier, but I think that makes them cuter as well.

While I admit some Pokemon look weird with Ditto faces (to put it lightly) my favorites from this batch were Magikarp, Dragonite, and Omanyte.

Which plush did you love from this set? Do you prefer the normal sized plush or the mascot sized mini versions?

Thanks for reading and until next time~

Pokemon Center Report – New Plush + TCG + Magikarp Jump

Pokemon Center Report – New Plush + TCG + Magikarp Jump

Hello everyone!

In my attempts to catch up with a bunch of releases that came out all at once, here is part one covering new Pokemon Center plush, card sleeves, Magikarp Jump mini promotion, and a couple miscellaneous items.

First up: new Pokemon Center exclusive plush!

I should probably say “new” as the majority of plush in this batch came out about two years back or so with the release of Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.

With such a large number of Pokemon, many of which don’t have official plush, I’m not sure why the Center gave us plush of Pokemon that literally get plush all the time, but the Pokemon Center does what it wants. With that said, the plush are still cute!

Our very first official plush of Dusk Lycanroc came out a few weekends ago!

Along with this adorable Rowlet plush that comes with a little backpack to carry him around in.

Last weekend, two surprise and unannounced Pokemon Center plush were released under the rader: shiny Mimikyu and the second official plush of Dusk Lycanroc!

Two Friday’s ago, a bunch of new Pokemon card sleeves were released along with the release of the “Awakened Heroes” and “Ultra-Dimensional Beasts” booster packs.

A matching deck case featuring beautiful Silvally artwork also went on sale the same Friday.

IMG_3134

Four schedule books for 2018 went on sale last weekend also with little fanfare and no previous announcements.

The two Pikachu books are made of leather and the price for both reflect it, as they’re double the price of the Ditto Transform! and Eeveelution books. All of them are cute!

Last and certainly not least, a very small amount of official Magikarp Jump merchandise came out two weekends back. Not pictured here is the blind packaged acrylic charms. (I have two on the way and I’m excited to see which fish patterns I pull!)

Stay tuned for more exciting Pokemon Center Reports!

Until next time~
