Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pokemon Center 20th Anniversary Wave 2 + June Poke-Cen Plush + June TCG

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pokemon Center 20th Anniversary Wave 2 + June Poke-Cen Plush + June TCG

Hello everyone!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Friday’s announcements, so I was surprised that not only did we get a pretty neat line-up for part 2 of the Pokemon Center’s 20th Anniversary festivities, but also new Pokemon Center exclusive plush (although three are Eevee so don’t get too excited).

The second wave of merchandise will feature a completely different base illustration from the first wave. Unlike the first illustration which included Shaymin, Pikachu, and the starter Pokemon across all 7 generations, this second illustration includes Pokemon that have been featured on Pokemon Center logos, plus Shaymin and Eevee.

Personally, I’m a fan of this second illustration more than the first, and likewise, I like the items from the second wave a little more than the first.

These items will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores in Japan starting June 2nd (Saturday).

Merch Line-Up

Shaymin Squishy Plush – 4,536 yen

Anniversary 2 Part 1

Keyholder – 1,026 yen

Pokemon Center Report – New Plush + TCG + Magikarp Jump

Pokemon Center Report – New Plush + TCG + Magikarp Jump

Hello everyone!

In my attempts to catch up with a bunch of releases that came out all at once, here is part one covering new Pokemon Center plush, card sleeves, Magikarp Jump mini promotion, and a couple miscellaneous items.

First up: new Pokemon Center exclusive plush!

ORAS Plush Again

I should probably say “new” as the majority of plush in this batch came out about two years back or so with the release of Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.

With such a large number of Pokemon, many of which don’t have official plush, I’m not sure why the Center gave us plush of Pokemon that literally get plush all the time, but the Pokemon Center does what it wants. With that said, the plush are still cute!

Tomy Dusk Lycanroc

Our very first official plush of Dusk Lycanroc came out a few weekends ago!

Along with this adorable Rowlet plush that comes with a little backpack to carry him around in.

Lycanroc & Shiny Mimikyu

Last weekend, two surprise and unannounced Pokemon Center plush were released under the rader: shiny Mimikyu and the second official plush of Dusk Lycanroc!

September TCG

Two Friday’s ago, a bunch of new Pokemon card sleeves were released along with the release of the “Awakened Heroes” and “Ultra-Dimensional Beasts” booster packs.

A matching deck case featuring beautiful Silvally artwork also went on sale the same Friday.

Schedule Books 2018

Four schedule books for 2018 went on sale last weekend also with little fanfare and no previous announcements.

The two Pikachu books are made of leather and the price for both reflect it, as they’re double the price of the Ditto Transform! and Eeveelution books. All of them are cute!

Magikarp Jump

Last and certainly not least, a very small amount of official Magikarp Jump merchandise came out two weekends back. Not pictured here is the blind packaged acrylic charms. (I have two on the way and I’m excited to see which fish patterns I pull!)

Stay tuned for more exciting Pokemon Center Reports!

Until next time~

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pokemon Halloween Time + Ruby & Sapphire PokeCen Plush

Friday Pokemon Announcements – Pokemon Halloween Time + Ruby & Sapphire PokeCen Plush

Hello everyone!

Last night, we got some majorly exciting news…

This year’s main Halloween promotion was announced!

Halloween comes super early this year and with almost no warning. The 2017 Pokemon Halloween promotion will drop at all Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan starting September 2nd (Saturday), which is technically…next week! (Did August even happen?)

There is a bunch of super cute merch this year and I’m really excited!! Halloween is my favorite time of the year and I’ve felt like the Pokemon Center has semi dropped the ball with the past several promotions. They made up for it this time!

(Before we delve into the excitement that is Pokemon Halloween 2017, a quick reminder: Don’t live in Japan? No problem! All of the Halloween items and more can be ordered through Japan Stuffs!)

Halloween Plush

Plush (Pikachu | Mimikyu | Bewear) – 1,944 yen each

Halloween Mascot Plush

Mascot Plush (Rowlet | Litten | Popplio | Eevee) – 1,296 yen each

Halloween Metal Charms

Metal Charm Sets (Pikachu | Mimikyu) – 918 yen each
Logo Pin – 648 yen

Halloween Merch 1

Set of 2 Mugs – 2,376 yen
Earrings – 648 yen
Plush Mascot Pin – 756 yen
Plush Pass Case – 1,404 yen

Halloween Merch 2

(Thanks to the Daisuki Club updating really quickly with new information, we actually have photos of all the merch from this promo!)

Squishy Mascots (Pikachu | Mimikyu) – 1,080 yen
Die-Cut Memo Set – 734 yen
PET Stickers – 540 yen
A4 3-Pocket Clearfile – 410 yen

Dice Bag – 648 yen
Pouch (Pikachu on one side, Mimikyu on the other) – 1,944 yen
Hand Towel – 756 yen

Of course there will be blind packaged rubber charms! This set features 9 designs with no secrets, and as always, each charm will cost 540 yen after tax.

As part of the Pokemon Center Halloween festivities that will start with Pokemon Halloween Time and run through October, starting September 22nd (Friday) customers at all Pokemon Center and Store locations will get 1 of 3 random clear art cards for every 2,500 yen spent. These cards are given out on a first come first serve basis and once they’re gone there’s no more, so if you’re in Japan around that time, make sure to stop by September 22nd and spend your cash!

In keeping tradition with the past few years, there will be a secondary Halloween/Gothic themed promotion that will go on sale separately from the main Halloween promotion. “Mysterious Encounters” is set to drop in Japan September 22nd (Friday) and we will get more information on the merch line-up September 8th (Friday), so stay tuned!

Moving on from Halloween… a batch of Ruby and Sapphire themed Pokemon Center exclusive plush will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers and Stores September 2nd (Saturday).

The line-up includes:

(1,296 yen)
Treecko
Torchic
Mudkip
Sableye
Plusle
Minun
Gulpin
Banette

(2,160 yen)
Altaria

(2,700 yen)
Rayquaza

Honestly speaking, this batch is maybe a little disappointing just because all of these Pokemon have plush, and in some cases a lot of plush that look very similar if not basically identical to these ones. I know it’s hard to believe, Pokemon Center, and you might want to sit down for this but there are actually other Gen 3 Pokemon besides the ones you have here, and I’m sure lots of fans would have loved those plush. I hate being that person who is all, “give another Pokemon a chance” but … give another Pokemon a chance?!

That wraps up Friday’s Pokemon Announcements!

Until next time~
