It’s been a while since my last Pokemon Center Report, for which I apologize. I’ve been doing my best to keep up with the weekly news announcements while also dealing with a mystery illness which ended up being a semi-serious kidney infection. Long story short, after two months of struggling and a short hospital stay, I’m finally back to normal and healthy again! Moral of the story: sometimes you should take WebMD seriously when it says “get treated or you will have problems”.
I have a couple Reports in the wings, so get excited for Pokemon Center photos!
A new batch of Pokemon Center exclusive Pokemon Dolls were released July 20th.
The set included Charizard, Blastoise, and Venusaur plus Dewott and Lotad (not a random inclusion at all)
Along with regular sized Pokedolls, there were also smaller sized mascot plush of the five Pokemon.
Some super cute Pikachu and Eevee plush were released July 27th.
Pikachu Eevee Outbreak
The plush and mascot plush are based on the mascot characters that walk and dance around during the annual Pikachu Outbreak event in Yokohama.
San-Ei All Star
A new collection from San-ei’s All-Star line also came out around mid July. The set included some fan favorites and some random selections (like Staryu). My personal favorite is Spinda who doesn’t have a lot of official plush.
Some smaller and un-announced releases during this period include… the Eeveelution plush mascot socks!
Not really practical or comfortable but still adorable, there was a cute sock for every Eeveelution, plus Eevee.
Eevee Pikachu Mascot
Also some cute Pokemon Center exclusive mascot plush, including Pikachu and Eevee (and Mew, although not pictured)
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report – thanks for sticking around!

January was kind of a slow month for the Pokemon Center, and it continues into February.
The big release for the last weekend in January (January 23rd) was for Pokemon Center original plush of the third evolution forms of all starter Pokemon across all 7 generations.
Third Evo Starters
The plush are basically remakes of previously released plush, but the sizes are all bigger and the patterns are slightly different.
The only plush that are direct re-releases are the three generation 7 Pokemon: Decidueye, Primarina, and Incineroar.
With that said, there are a couple Pokemon that haven’t had plushies made yet, so this release is a mixed bag (for example, did we really need yet more plush of the three original starters? Probably not) But! I’m sure there are people out there that are happy for more Venusaur, so I can’t be mad.
The Pokemon Center also came out with un-announced phone cases and related phone accessories.
The cases were mainly previously released designs but for iPhone X, so for people with an X phone, surprise! And you’re welcome.
Last but not least! The Mimikyu Keyboard Plush also came out at the end of January.
The Keyboard Plush series is so called because each plush comes with a soft keyboard cushion, designed to be used to rest your elbows when using the computer. The Pokemon plush is a bonus to hug while you’re working.
As a reminder, all items mentioned in this post can be ordered through Japanstuffs~ We offer pick-ups direct from the Pokemon Centers in Tokyo so you are always guaranteed 100% authentic Pokemon Center merchandise!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report.
Until next time~
