As I expected, the Pokemon Center finally gave us the official merchandise list for this year’s Halloween promotion… but not many pictures yet again. Although at least we did get pictures of all the plush and a couple extras (unlike when Pokemon Time was originally announced…)
As mentioned previously, the Halloween promotion will drop September 8th (Saturday) at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan.
Halloween 2018 Plush
This year’s promotion doesn’t have quite as extensive a selection as past years however on the other hand we have 6 plush and 4 mascot plush, which is a lot for a Pokemon Center promotion.
The Halloween promotion is divided into two parts: Team Treat (with Pikachu) and Team Trick (with Mimikyu).
The three main plush for Team Treat are Pikachu, Ampharos, and Sylveon. The three main plush for Team Trick are Mimikyu, Pumpkaboo, and Gengar.
Each plush will cost 1,944 yen including tax.
The two mascot plush for Team Treat are Umbreon and Dedenne. The two mascot plush for Team Trick are Banette and Sableye.
Each mascot plush will cost 1,296 yen including tax.
Along with the plush, there will also be two sets of A4 size clearfiles, with 3 designs per set (410 yen including tax per set).
Cookie tins, with one design for Team Treat and one for Team Trick (972 yen including tax per tin)
Halloween 2018 Cookies
Each tin comes with print cookies – cookies with Pokemon printed on them. As probably assumed, the Team Trick cookie tin will have cookies featuring Team Trick Pokemon, and same for Team Treat.
Halloween 2018 Charms
There will be two types of blind packaged charms – each will cost 540 yen including tax for a single charm.
Team Treat is acrylic charms and has 9 charm designs in total (Banette, Sableye, Gengar, Bewear, Pumpkaboo, Misdreavus, Mimikyu, Rotom)
Team Trick is metal charms and has 8 charm designs in total (Eevee, Vulpix Pair, Swirlix/Whimsicott/Vanillite, Espeon, Umbreon, Sylveon, Ampharos, Pikachu, Dedenne)
B6 Double Ringed Notebook (Team Treat | Team Trick) – 702 yen each
B7 Assorted Memo Sheets (Team Treat | Team Trick) – 432 yen each
Assorted Stickers (Team Treat | Team Trick) – 540 yen each
Dice Bag (Team Treat | Team Trick) – 648 yen each
Mug w/ Lid (Team Treat) – 1,512 yen
Heat Changing Mug (Team Trick) – 1,512 yen
The final photos for the Pokemon Time Vol 11 release coming out tomorrow (Saturday August 25th) surfaced so better late than never!
First up: three surprise plush!
For the first time in Pokemon Time history, the Pokemon Center is selling human plush.
Pre-orders for Acerola, Lillie, and Moon will start August 25th (Saturday) at 10 am and close September 30th (Sunday) at 11:59 pm JP time.
Plush are scheduled to ship out January 2019.
Each plush costs 4,104 yen with tax.
Along with plush, the three trainers will join their companion Pokemon (Cosmog, Rowlet, and Mimikyu) for the Pokemon Time gacha, making two more firsts for the Pokemon Time series.
As I sort of expected, the three main Pokemon Time plush look pretty much the same as their mascot plush counter parts… simply bigger.
We also finally can see the very original skajan inspired hats from the skajan portion of the Pokemon Time release!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center announcements.

Until next time~

The Pokemon Center’s first (and quite possibly the most anticipated) of this year’s Halloween promotions came out this past Saturday in Pokemon Centers and Stores around Japan.
Titled “Halloween Parade 2015” (so as not to be confused with any other parades from previous years), the main theme is Pikachu dressed up as various ghost type Pokemon…and Golbat…in preparation for Halloween and trick or treating.
One of the only full sized plush was Pikachu dressed as Golbat, looking very vampiric and even a little goth with his cutie bat top hat.
There was also 4 smaller sized plush, also known as mascot plush, with Pikachu dressed up as Mismagius, Duskull, and Gengar, as well as a smaller Golbat Pikachu. Aside from the Pikachu plush, there was also both a mascot size version of a Pikachu jack-o-lantern…
…and a larger size version of the same design. The Pikachu jack-o-lantern plush was especially popular among collectors, as the Center has released different versions of this similar design throughout the years.
As always, what would a Pokemon Center promotion be without blind packaged somethings. You could try your lack with loose packs, costing about $3 each, or buy an entire box, guaranteeing a full set of 10 different designs of rubber straps.
The Joltik train pass cases were, unsurprisingly, another popular item from the day.
If plush and stationary weren’t exactly your thing, the promotion also had free size Gengar hoodies, Pikachu jack-o-lantern t-shirts in sizes small, medium, and large, and incredibly adorable Drifloon hats.
The Drifloon hats were yet another popular item, and rightly so! Not only is it designed to keep your head warm in winter, but you can use it without the fear of ghostly abduction.
Last but not least, we got a surprise cookie tin! The tin has a bunch of cute ghosties around the sides, including Litwick, Chandelure, Gengar, Mismagias, and Duskull, among others, and contains caramel rusk cookies.
I was especially excited for the Mismagius Pikachu and was not disappointed. This was a great start to the upcoming Halloween season, and we still have Mystery Mansion to look forward to!

It looks like the Pokemon Center will be having 2 separate Halloween promotions this year!
Along with Mystery Mansion (coming out September 19th), Halloween Parade 2015 will be released in all Pokemon Centers around Japan on September 5th.
The theme for this year is Pikachu dressed up in costume, going trick or treating.
There is 1 normal sized plush (Pikachu dressed as Golbat) as well as 4 mascot sized plush (Pikachu dressed as Golbat, Gengar, Mismagius, and Duskull)
Along with the plush, there will also be a Gengar hoodie, t-shirt (not pictured), Drifloon hat, plush badge sets you can attach to your bag
Earrings, phone case, handkerchiefs, pin sets
And what would a Pokemon Center promotion be without metal charms and blind packaged rubber straps? No promotion at all, that’s for sure.
There will also be a memopad, notebook, mug, and a variety of stickers!
Not part of the promotion, but equally as spoopy, these Halloween themed pouches and dice bags will also be available at Pokemon Centers.
Yay for Halloween, the best time of the year!
