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.

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.

The stickers will be 216 yen each.

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pikachu Mega Campaign Wave 2 + New Years + Monthly Pikachu + Sepia Graffiti

With the Pikachu Mega Campaign Wave 1 starting tomorrow (December 12th), the Pokemon Center decided to announce some information for Wave 2.



The most exciting news from what we have so far from Wave 2 are these Pokemon XY Break Special card boxes, which will go on sale on New Year’s Day (January 1st). There will be 2 different designs for the boxes, and although the contents are the same between the two, the general designs will differ, with one box featuring Pikachu dressed as Mega Charizard X and one featuring Pikachu dressed as Mega Charizard Y.

Contents are as follows:

* Premium Holo Card
* Special Holo Card (Pikachu)
* Rage of the Broken Heavens expansion pack x 2
* Rising Fist, Phantom Gate, Emerald Break expansion packs x 1 of each
* Deck Case
* Card Sleeves (1 set of 62 sleeves)
* Long Card Box

Each box is 2,500 yen plus tax.


Along with the two special card boxes, these four card sleeve designs will also go on sale on January 1st. Each pack of sleeves contains 32 sleeves and costs 362 yen plus tax.


For people living in Japan, for every 2,000 yen you spend starting on January 1st, you will receive a random card featuring one of these designs.


Similar to the Pikachu Mega Campaign Wave 1, if you are lucky enough to pull the Mega Rayquaza design, you’ll also receive a card case to keep your cards organized and clean.


But wait, there’s more! January 16th brings us these very cute gachapon figures: 7 different types, 300 yen per play.


Moving on from the Mega Campaign, February’s Monthly Pikachu was announced early. This month has Pikachu peacefully asleep under a kotatsu, one of the best things to do during February to keep warm! This Pikachu will be released on January 9th and will cost 1,600 yen plus tax.


Finally, we have a couple new additions to the Sepia Graffiti series.
