It’s Friday which means it’s that time of the week when we get news on up-coming Pokemon merchandise and other fun stuff.
Remember back in June when the Pokemon Center announced a new series of Pikachu & Eevee pair plush, called Seasons Pikachu & Eevee? And how the series would have four plush in total, one for every season?
Yeah, I totally forgot about it, oops Well, it’s back with an autumn version!
For some reason, fall and November especially are synonymous in Japan with artsy things, so in that style, we have Pikachu and Eevee, reading a picture book together, outside I guess since there’s a fall leaf on one of the pages.
The plush will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores in Japan on October 27th (Saturday) and costs 3,240 yen including tax.
Don’t forget, we still have winter and spring versions to look forward to!
Also coming out October 27th (Saturday) is a mini clothing based promotion with a Ghost Pokemon Type focus.

An official Pokemon Center will be opening outside of Japan in the Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel) in Singapore.
Logo artwork has been released, along with a main promotional illustration, indicating there will be a grand-opening merchandise promotion.
Aside from “opening 2019”, at this point we don’t have any other information, but I will of course report on anything that comes out as I hear it.
Closing us out, this smaller Magikarp mascot plush was released on the 10th to no fanfare.
You can pull the Magikarp away from the pokeball and he’ll shake and vibrate!
Want this little guy? You can order him through Japanstuffs.com!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center announcements.
Until next time~
