Palnart & Pokemon
The second volume of the popular Pokemon Fit Pokemon plush series was released in Japan November 16th (Friday), the same day that Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu & Eevee dropped.
The Pokemon Fit plush series included every single Pokemon from the original 151 list over two release dates – volume 1 plush went on sale back in July (see this post for Pokemon Center photos), and the remaining 121 Pokemon were included in this volume 2 release.
I love the Pokemon Fit series. The style is incredibly cute, the size is perfect, and it gives a chance for some Pokemon who might never have gotten plush to have their first plush.
I unfortunately don’t have photos of every single Pokemon included in this release, but here are some highlights from over the weekend!
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 1
Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Caterpie, Butterfree, Pidgey
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 2

Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 3

Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 4
Chansey, Tangela, Goldeen, Seaking, Mr Mime, Scyther, Jynx
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 5
