There’s been a couple of smaller new merchandise releases between June and July that don’t fit in with a bigger promotion and this post will cover some of them!
Delicious Water Mascot Plush
The Delicious Water Pokemon Center promotion dropped May 18th (Saturday). Some astute observers might have noticed the art style was similar to the previously released Mix Au Lait and Saiko Soda promotions, and you would be correct; Delicious Water was part of this same series, but with a watery twist.
The mascot plush were the most popular from this release, and rightfully so. There was a plush made for each water starter Pokemon from the current 7 Pokemon regions.
Why does only Piplup get a crown? My guess… there is someone involved with Pokemon merchandising who loves Piplup, which explains why he gets so much merchandise while simultaneously not selling well ever. You can push it all you want, Piplup person, but it’s not going to happen (I’m sorry).
Along with the main Delicious Water items, there were a bunch of Saiko Soda stuff as well, including bags and t-shirts.
Following in the footsteps of the last Mix Au Lait release, the Delicious Water promotion also included a gacha set with each figure being paired with a mini bottle of water figure.
Japanese Style June
June 16th (Saturday) saw the release of the Japanese Style promotion, featuring a bunch of more traditional Japanese items with a Pokemon twist.
There were a lot of neat items, but some highlights included: a set of four plates, four different 2 plate sets, two different types of bento boxes, super cute chopsticks with Umbreon and Espeon, aprons, and traditional Japanese short pants for wearing outside in summer when it’s hot.
An unannounced mini Pokemon Center promotion, featuring mostly apparel with a neon theme and aptly titled “Neon Color”, came out June 22nd (Saturday).
Although maybe not too exciting, the set included phone cases, some bags, t-shirts, hats, and a bunch of socks.
Sock designs included: Pikachu,
A new set of Chokkori-san sitting plush came out near the end of June.
This set of 8 plush included: Popplio, Litten, Rowlet, Lillie, Alolan Vulpix, Mew, Mewtwo, and Zeraora.
I love this series because the plush look so cute in their little sitting poses and also they can hold things with their tiny hands!
Eeveelution Pass Case
June 29th (Saturday) had a couple of surprise unannounced releases, one being a set of Eeveelution plush face pass cases.
They’re all cute (and soft!) but Umbreon is my favorite ❤
Ditto Charm Sets
Another June 29th unannounced release – Ditto Transform linking charm sets!
It’s been so long since the last release of these charm sets I forgot they existed, so it was kind of a nice surprise.
There were 6 charm sets in total:
Leafeon, Glaceon, Sylveon
Furret, Alolan Vulpix, Dragonite
Whimsicott, Gloom, Shaymin
Lapras, Magikarp, Omanyte
Mareep, Electrode, Magnemite
Litwick, Sableye, Misdreavus
Some of these sets make complete sense. Some of them… don’t. But that’s fine! The Pokemon Center can do what it wants as always.
Next Pokemon Center Report will cover the Pokemon World Market release so stay tuned!

First off, before we dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report…
I am currently running an End of the Year give-away contest over on my Twitter account!
1 winner will be randomly selected to win 1 Eeveelution (or Pikachu) plush of their choice from the up-coming Mix Au Lait promotion.
To enter, follow me (@zombiemiki) on Twitter and RT this tweet.
Give-away ends Noon EST Dec. 30th (Sunday), 2018 so don’t forget to enter before the deadline. Good luck!
Although there were no new merchandise announcements from the Pokemon website on Friday, Saturday (December 22nd) made up for it with a bunch of cute releases all at once.
One of which was the Winter version of the Pikachu & Eevee Seasons pair plush series. This plush features Eevee and Pikachu cuddling in a box of Pokemon shaped chocolates!
Next up – a new volume from the very popular Ditto Transform! series!
As with every Ditto Transform release, this set featured 5 Pokemon (Leafeon, Glaceon, Litwick, Misdreavus, and Poipole)
Ditto Transform Mascot
in both plush versions and mascot plush size versions.
(My favorite is of course Litwick!)
Along with the two types of plush, there was also a matching gacha figure collection set with the same five Pokemon!
For the record, Poipole loved me. I played 10 times and 6 were Poipole. Left and came back to try again… another Poipole. Came back another day … three more Poipole!!
(I was able to eventually get a Litwick Ditto thankfully)
The big release for this weekend was the Super Nerd promotion…
… featuring Robot Pikachu!
Super Nerd Mascot
Along with two sizes of Robot Pikachu plush (normal size and an extra large foot tall version), there was a smaller mascot plush size version plus mascot plushies of Pikachu, Charmander, Alolan Vulpix, and Piplup, all wearing matching scientist coats!
The promotion featured some Pokemon Center staples, such as the blind packaged rubber charm collection
Super Nerd Items 1
There were also a bunch of other cute and original items, including a Robot Pikachu memo note holder, a set of cute acrylic clips, a writable mini size blackboard, eyeglass cases, phone cases, and pens and pencils with small Robot Pikachu charms (among others!)
Super Nerd Shirts
We got a bunch of new and cute Pokemon Center socks as well as two types of t-shirt designs.
The Super Nerd promotion even included the TCG crowd with two original card sleeve designs!
And if all of those expected releases weren’t enough, there were some surprise releases as well!
A set of Eeveelution themed bell charms came out on Saturday, which featured all the Eeveelutions (minus Eevee who already has a bell charm).
Note that they’re called bell charms because the charms are bells!
A set of Pokemon shaped carabiner clips (Pikachu Tail, Eevee Tail, Eevee Face, Gulpin, Pyukumuku, Diglett, and Charjabug) were also released this past Saturday.
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report!
Thanks for looking and (to those who celebrate) Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
