The main Pokemon Center Halloween promotion for 2016, Pokemon Halloween Circus, was released last weekend, and everything was just as cute as one could hope for!
There were two parts to this promotion, with the first being the Circus Parade themed items, with the highlight being the plush. There were two types of larger sized plush, one being Pikachu dressed as a juggler
And Eevee dressed as a ghostie pirate.
And Eevee were available in smaller mascot plush size as well, along with
Espeon and Umbreon
Plusle, Minun, and Drifloon (looking extra grumpy and extra adorable with his little bat wings and ears). It’s a little hard to see in this picture, but Plusle and Minun are sold separately and not together.
Along with plush, there were other cute Halloween themed items including a logo pin
Two different metal charm sets (the other set has Eevee, Umbreon/Espeon, and Drifloon)
Here is the display for the blind packaged item for this promo. The set had 10 possible designs (Pikachu, Eevee, Plusle/Minun, Pumpkaboo, Drifloon, Umbreon, Espeon, Electrode, Joltik, Meloetta) and does not include a secret Pokemon.
The second half of the 2016 Halloween promotion included a bunch of spooky Pikachu jack-o-lanterns!
To make up for last week’s disappointing zero new merch news, they gave us a bunch of exciting updates today!
Let’s start with the most exciting news first: Halloween!!! I always look forward to the Halloween promotion every year, and 2016’s line-up does not disappoint. The year’s merch has a circus theme to it, with all the Pokemon dressed up in cute, yet spookily appropriate, circus-y outfits. The main Pokemon are Pikachu (of course), Eevee, Drifloon, Espeon, and Umbreon. (Also, based on a lot of the recent merch announcements and releases, it might be fair to say at this point to expect to see more Espeon and Umbreon in the future.)
As a side note, the Halloween promotions usually start coming out in September, with Christmas stuff appearing near the end of October, so this is not earlier than expected.
The 2016 Halloween Circus promotion is set to come out at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan on September 3rd.
