After two weeks or so of no news, the Pokemon Center decided to bless us with a couple exciting announcements today!
Pokedex metal charms are back with all the new Generation 7 and Alola Form Pokemon!

Pokemon With You returns on March 11th to Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan, coincidentally on the anniversary of the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake. The Pokemon With You series was originally created as a way to raise money for children affected by the Tohoku Earthquake and 100% of proceeds from Pokemon With You merchandise goes to charity, so it’s a nice way to donate and get cute Pokemon stuff at the same time.
The newest batch of metal charms includes a mix of Pokemon, including: Snorlax, Alola Vulpix, Alola Raichu, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Chikorita, Lapras, Dragonite, and Bewear. Each charm costs 270 yen after tax.
