This week there was basically no announcements but…
For all the Furret fans out there, this is either great or horrible news.
The Pokemon Center will be selling a life-size Furret plush exclusively through the on-line store.
This plush is life-size – it’s 180 cm from head to tail, and costs 30,240 yen including tax.
Pre-orders will run from February 23rd (Saturday) at 10 am until March 24th (Sunday) at 11:59 pm. Plush will start shipping out around mid July 2019.
If ordering, please keep in mind that the plush with the box will most likely be too large for EMS so shipping prices will be most likely higher than you’re anticipating.
March’s Pokemon Card Day will fall on March 1st (Friday).
This month’s new booster pack is called “Double Blaze” and features Reshiram and Charizard on the main illustration.
Each pack will cost 162 yen and contains 5 random cards.

Life-Size Furret Plush
March Pokemon TCG
Rainbow Rocket landed in Pokemon Centers across Japan (including the on-line store) on Saturday January 20th.
The promotion featured a bunch of neat items, including stickers, clip sets, pens, phone cases, and a set of gacha figures (see this post for a full list), however the highlights were definitely the Pikachu Dress-Up plush and surprise legendary (plus Goliosopod) Pokemon plush.
Rainbow Rocket Pikachu Plush
Unlike the previously released Secret Teams dress-up Pikachu, these Pikachu plush are dressed up specifically as each secret team’s leaders.
There are 7 Pikachu plush in total: Giovanni, Archie, Maxie (not pictured), Cyrus, Ghetsis, Lysandre, and Guzma.
Rainbow Rocket Legendary
Along with the 7 Boss Pikachus, the promo as featured 9 legendary Pokemon plush (and Golisopod, who I guess is an honorary legendary now)
These plush are not Pokedolls although they sort of have a Pokedoll feel.
I’m not going to lie; some are pretty derpy. Maybe it adds to their charm?
The 10 plush are: Mewtwo, Groudon, Kyogre, Dialga, Palkia, Zekrom, Reshiram, Yveltal, Xerneas, and as mentioned Golisopod.
January PokeCen Plush
Unrelated to Rainbow Rocket, two new (?) Pokemon Center exclusive plush came out January 20th as well.
New being questionable as Pichu isn’t really new at this point anywhere, but Typhlosion was a surprise.
Pikachu Living & Dining
On January 27th, a small Pikachu based promotion called Pikachu Living & Dining was released.
The promo features a bunch of items that can be used in the home and the kitchen, including tons of bowls, towels, laundry related merch
and cute Pikachu slippers (plus a couple others!)
That wraps up the last of the releases for January.
Welcome to February everyone~
The Pokemon Center staff decided to take a two week extended vacation around the New Years so we didn’t get any updates the Friday before New Years and we didn’t get anything the Friday after.
To be honest, tonight’s updates weren’t that exciting considering it was only Rainbow Rocket stuff that we already mostly knew about. But! Better than nothing and we do have a couple interesting tidbits so hold on to your hats.
…but first, a word from the management!
I’m currently hosting a little Pre-Valentine’s Day give away for the super adorable Pikachu Pair Plush that comes out tomorrow (Saturday January 13th).
To enter, simply follow my Twitter account (@zombiemiki) and retweet this tweet~
Entrees are welcome world-wide. Good luck to everyone!
Rainbow Rocket Takeover!
The Pokemon Bosses will be taking over the Pokemon Centers in Japan starting January 20th. This take-over extends to the on-line store as well, where the site will get a little make-over to be darker and more Bossier, until March when the campaign officially ends.
As part of the take-over, there will of course be a merch promotion that will also start January 20th (Saturday). This promo is comprised of two parts: Secret Teams and Boss Pikachu.
As part of the Boss Pikachu side, we’re getting 7 Pikachu plush dressed as the 7 main bosses from across 7 generations of Pokemon: Giovanni, Maxie, Archie, Cyrus, Ghetsis, Lysandre, and Guzma.
Each plush will cost 2,160 yen after tax.
There will also be new legendary Pokemon (and Golisopod) plush!
Although they look sort of like Pokedolls, they’re not part of the Pokedoll line.
This release will include: Mewtwo, Groudon, Kyogre, Dialga, Palkia, Reshiram, Zekrom, Yveltal, Xerneas, and as mentioned, Goliosopod.
Each plush will cost 2,484 yen after tax.

Acrylic Clip Set – 972 yen
Sticker Assortment – 540 yen
Socks – 3 pairs for 1,080 yen
A4 Clearfile – 259 yen
Boss Pikachu Bonus
There will be a Boss Pikachu gacha with 7 figures (no secrets).
As usual, 1 play will be 300 yen.
Because the Pokemon Center loves blind packaged stuff, there will also be blind packaged ramune candy tins, with 7 possible designs. Each tin costs 410 yen after tax.
From Secret Teams…
Knapsack – 9,180 yen
Totebag w/ 7 Boss Badges – 5,292 yen

Each necklace will cost 4,104 yen after tax.
Secret Teams Tshirts
There will also be super fancy t-shirts! Each t-shirt comes with a matching Evil Team pin badge.
Like everything in this promotion, there will be 7 designs in total. Each shirt will be available in medium and large and will cost 5,400 yen after tax.
Additional items include…
Secret Teams Flip Phone Case (fits phones that are up to 140 mm long x 70 mm wide x 10 mm thick) – 3,240 yen
Boss Pikachu Soft iPhone Case (iPhone 8 / 7 / 6s / 6) – 2,030 yen
Frixion Ball 3 Pen (Secret Teams / Boss Pikachu) – 972 yen each
Last but not least, there will be three main merchandise related campaigns that will start from January 20th.
Customers on the Pokemon Center On-Line Store who complete all four missions on the on-line store will be entered into a raffle to win an original customizable card case.
The case comes with 7 badges, 1 for each team, so you can decorate your case with whichever team holds your heart (and your soul).
There will be 50 winners for this magnificent prize.
Campaign 2! Starting from January 20th, Pokemon Center On-Line orders will be shipped in special Rainbow Rocket boxes.
Campaign 3.A! For every 2,000 yen spent at any Pokemon Center or Store, including the on-line Store, customers will receive 1 of 7 Boss Pikachu cards.
Campaign 3.B! Customers at Pokemon Centers or Store who purchase 5 packs of TCG cards will receive an original Boss Pikachu promo card of their choosing. This campaign is available on-line as well.
All of these campaigns will run into March 11th or until supplies run out in some cases.
That wraps up Friday’s Pokemon Center announcements!
For those who don’t live in Japan, everything from the Rainbow Rocket promotion can be found on Japanstuffs.com. We ship worldwide and every order comes with an original Miki designed sticker!
Thanks for sticking around and stay tuned for more merch and madness.
