Two quick words before I dive into this week’s Pokemon Center Report~
First off, big apologizes for the lack of updates lately! The blog is not ending, but two weeks in a row we didn’t get merchandise news from the main Pokemon website and then my main source for Pokemon Center photos was on holiday in the United States.
But we are back so I appreciate everyone’s patience.
Second – the official Zombie Miki store is back in business, with a new look and with more items!
Check it out here
I will be adding items in as quickly as I can. Most of these items are from my personal collection and were bought directly from the Pokemon Center in Tokyo over the course of 7 years. They’re all in near perfect if not perfect condition, but if you have any questions about an item, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me!
On that note, if you notice any issues with the cart or checking out, or if you have a question about shipping prices, also please let me know (you can send me a message through my contact page or send me a DM on Twitter). I am happy to offer discounted shipping for larger purchases 🙂
Also as mentioned, I am selling a good majority of my Pokemon merchandise collections, which includes some bigger items such as the New Years Fennekin sleeping plush, New Years Fennekin face cushion, and a complete set of the Monthly Pikachu collection. The Pokemon I collected over the years include: Fennekin, Meowstic, Litwick, Mew, Clefairy, Raichu, Dedenne, Holiday Pikachu, Sylveon, and Vulpix (Kanto & Alolan versions). If there is a specific item you are looking for, there is a good chance I have it and am selling it, so please ask me directly.
The release of the original 151 Kanto region Pokemon Fit plushies were a great success, but even I was still surprised when the Pokemon Center announced they would be continuing the Sitting Cuties series (the international release name) with all Pokemon featured in Gold & Silver… including every single Unown plus ! and ?
(Pictured here is M for Miki, of course)
Although I couldn’t take pictures of every Pokemon in the release, here are a few notable examples~
Pokemon Fit Gold Silver 1
I love this series so much mainly because the plush are all super soft and the perfect size.
Pictured here: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Sentret, Furret (not to scale), Cleffa, Mareep, Flaaffy, and Ampharos (one of the most popular electric type Pokemon!)
Pokemon Fit Gold Silver 2
I didn’t realize until this release how many Johto region Pokemon I love, and the Pokemon Center did a great job converting everyone’s favorite Pokemon into a super adorable plush form.
I think they did an especially great job with Sudowoodo (which, by the way, is a play on words since he is psuedo-wood-o… in case you didn’t know!)
Also shout out to the second official Dunsparce plush – the first plush was released at Pokemon Centers in Japan in 2013.
Pictured here: Sudowoodo, Politoed, Espeon, Umbreon, Girafarig, Dunsparce, Delibird, Houndour, and Houndoom.
Pokemon Fit Gold Silver 3
Other notable plushies: Smeargle and Miltank (both very cute).
The three legendary beasts came out looking, for the most part, pretty good. My real question is… what animal do you think the beasts are? (I always saw them as dogs)
Pictured here: Stantler, Smeargle, Miltank, Blissey, Raikou, Entei, Suicune.
Pokemon Fit Plush Gold Silver 4
Last but not least – everyone’s favorite recently, most likely because of Pokemon Go: The Tar Family! Tyranitar was definitely one of the big sellers from the release, no joke.
Pictured here: Larvitar, Tyranitar, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi

We finally got the news tonight that everyone has been waiting for…
The Lucky Bags for 2019! (Fanfare! Applause!)
This year’s Lucky Bags will cost the same as last year’s (4,000 yen including tax) and like last year, each bag will include a random Lucky Bag exclusive plush. This year, we get 1 of 3 foot tall versions of Fit plush: Pikachu, Eevee, or Mew.

The Pokemon Center On-Line put up their lucky bags an hour after the announcement (Friday December 14th at 3 pm JP time) and they sold out a few hours later. Note that this year’s limit seems to be 1 bag per person, vs last year’s 2 bags per person.

A bunch of new stuff hit Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan on Saturday, October 7th.
This post will cover the latest Pokemon Center exclusive plush and Pokedolls.
First up, one of the top favorite line of Pokemon Center merch… Pokedolls!
This latest batch of dolls featured all four Oricorio forms: Baile, Pom-Pom, Pa’u, and Sensu.
All four are adorable and round and soft.
As part of the Pokemon Center exclusive line of plush, we got two 1:1 size plush!
Usually when we think 1:1 we think big, wow, impressive! In this case, they’re about the same size if not smaller than the usual line of Pokedolls.
1:1 size Cutiefly and Joltik might not be the most impressive in terms of size, but they’re maybe the most adorable!
Furret & Sentret
Speaking of adorable, Sentret and Furret also made an appearance in plush forms!
Sentret is showing off his little muscles. Meanwhile, Furret is very long.
Marill & Wooper
Last but not least, we have our two buddy water type Pokemon: Marill and Wooper!
That wraps up today’s Pokemon Center Report! Stay tuned for Eevee Poncho Extravaganza and Umbreon & Espeon Cosmetics~
