Friday Pokemon Announcements – Eevee and the Torrid Tale of Too Many Blind Packaged Goods

The merch list for the highly anticipated 2015 Pokemon Time ~ Eevee Collection ~ promotion was announced!


The focus in the main image seems to be the t-shirts, which are blind packaged. For the first time ever, in the history of blind packaged merchandise, blind packaged t-shirts?! Each shirt is roughly $10 before tax, but considering there are nine Eeveelutions, that $10 can add up quickly if you are trying to get a specific one and don’t have much luck.

Everyone was expecting plush, but there are no pictures of them! They are mascot plush so will be tiny, as opposed to the plush released last year and the year before.


The t-shirts are cute, simple, and free-size, meaning it should be big enough to fit a variety of sizes.


Along with t-shirts, there are also lanyards with card sleeves (blind packaged), rubber straps (blind packaged), an iPhone case, die-cut stickers…


…two types of towels (a small but long towel designed to be used like a scarf and a towelket, which is a blanket made of towel like fabric), headphones…

…and a bunch of items which we don’t have photos for at this time including:

    mascot plush
    figure straps
    clear files
    gold-leaf stickers
    memo stand
    pajama pants
    a set of bed sheets
    pokemon time mini tins (blind packaged)
    shoulder bag

Hopefully we will get pictures of, at the very least, the plush before release date. Hopefully!!


For those going to the Pokemon Center on Eevee Collection day who spend more than $100, you can get this limited Eeveelution bag (until supplies last!)


If Eevees aren’t your thing but you still want to spend money, this Pokemon Center exclusive Hoopa plush is also coming out on the 6th, just in time for the movie!


Last but not least, an official picture has surfaced of the Hiroshima Center Karpchus. These plush, along with other merch so far unannounced, will go on sale in Pokemon Centers starting June 26th, which is also when the Hiroshima Center will open!

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Hiroshima Pokemon Center, Pokemon Time


No merch news this week, but we finally have an official date for the grand opening of the Hiroshima Pokemon Center (June 26th)!

Although the merchandise list for the opening is “in progress” and will be available later, they did share with us these adorable Pikachus wearing Gyarados and Magikarp ponchos. There is a 99.9% chance plush based on these illustrations will be sold as part of the opening promotion. Most likely if they make all three versions, the shiny Gyarados poncho Pika will be a Hiroshima exclusive (so maybe Mega Tokyo won’t be as crazy as usual for once?!)

The opening of the Hiroshima Center will also mark the opening of the very first Pokemon Center in the Chūgoku/Shikoku region of Japan. Huzzah!



A sneaky sneak-preview of some of the merch from the up-coming Pokemon Time – Eevee Collection – was shared via the Pokemon Daisuki Club email sent out today. So far we have charms, a pair of headphones, and cell phone case confirmed! I know there will be plush, I just can’t wait to see what they look like (other than adorable, of course).
