Hello everyone and welcome back to our regularly scheduled Friday Pokemon Merchandise Announcements!
On January 26th (Saturday), the Pokemon Center will be releasing plush versions of all the Starter Pokemon’s final evolution forms across 7 generations.
The line-up includes: Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Meganium, Typhlosion, Feraligatr, Sceptile, Blaziken, Swampert, Torterra, Empoleon, Infernape, Serperior, Emboar, Samurott, Chesnaught, Delphox, Greninja, Decidueye, Primarina, and Incineroar.
Out of the Pokemon listed, Decidueye, Primarina, and Incineroar are re-releases. Everything else is a new release and should be bigger than previously released plush.
Each plush will cost 3,456 yen including tax.
A brand new and original Pokemon Center promotion, designed to look like traditional Japanese sumie artwork and featuring some popular fighting Pokemon, will go on sale in Japan from January 19th (Saturday). This promotion is called “Sumie Retsuden” (Ink Brush Portraits).

We got a bunch of exciting announcements today, including more merch scheduled for July 16th since there’s not already enough stuff coming out on that day!
The Pokemon Center is on the ball this time with the next set of Kuttari plush already announced and set for release on the 16th! This Pokemon featured in this set seem a little random, but it seems like a lot of people are excited, so that’s all that matters.
This 6th set includes Absol, Cubone, Growlithe, Jirachi, Quagsire, and Zorua. All Pokemon will have both an awake and sleeping version (similar to the Zorua pictured here) and each plush will retail for 928 yen.
As previously mentioned, the Poncho Pikachu plush returns with a new set of Pikachus dressed up as mega evolved Pokemon! This mini promotion will consist of normal and mascot size plush, gacha figures, and stickers. The Mega Pokemon featured in this set are Mega Ampharos, Mega Diancie, Mega Gallade, Mega Gardevoir, Mega Lopunny, Mega Mawile, and Mega Rayquaza.
Gacha figures will be 300 yen per pull.
Regular sized plush will be 2,376 yen each.
Mascot plush will be 1,296 yen each.
The stickers will be 216 yen each.
The Pokemon Center has a semi bad history of piling a bunch of releases onto one day, creating pandemonium when there doesn’t necessarily need to be any. With a lot of Pokemon Center exclusive goods now getable from multiple sources (including Amazon and their official on-line store), and coupled with buying limits that have been in place for over a year at this point (10 of each new item per person), the chaos probably won’t be as bad as it might have been in the past, but still, prayers go out to anyone challenging the Pokemon Centers on July 16th, as we have more merchandise set for release on that day!
First up, these super cute mini hoodie shaped pass cases! Like most pass cases, they have a tiny slot to conveniently hold your train pass and can be easily attached to your bag with a carabiner clip to keep you from potentially losing it.
You can use them to hold small items. Unlike most pass cases, however, you can reuse the cases to dress up your tiny plushies. Pro tip: these hoodies are a perfect fit for most (if not all) kuttari plush!
Designs for this batch of hoodie pass cases include: Gengar, Pikachu, Raichu, Slowpoke, and Substitute Plush.
Each case will sell for 2,052 yen
Straight from the official Pokemon YouTube account, this new batch of Mega Poncho Pikachu plush has been announced for release on July 23rd! This batch of 7 plush will include Poncho versions of: Mega Gallade, Mega Gardevoir, Mega Mawile, Mega Diancie, Mega Ampharos, Mega Lopunny, and Mega Rayquaza. There is a good chance these plush will be part of a promotion, so more information coming soon!
Starting July 23rd and while supplies last, for every 5,000 yen spent at all Pokemon Centers, stores, customers will receive 1 of these Mega Poncho Pikachu fans.
A Pikachu of the World promotion will be coming out August 6th – more information coming soon!
