Welcome to another Pokemon Center catch-up post. This time, we’ll be going over the first release from the Pokemon Fit series.
The first part of the release came out July 13th, the same day as the 2018 Pokemon summer movie came out. The second part of this release, which will include all the Pokemon that weren’t part of the original release, is scheduled for November 2018, probably coinciding with the Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee games.
The series is called “Pokemon Fit” because the Pokemon are designed to be smaller plush that can easily fit in the palm of your hand. My consensus on this line? Everything is adorable!
I don’t have pictures unfortunately of all the Pokemon in this release, but here are some!
Pokemon Fit 1
I love Omanyte and Shellder: they look so goofy!
Pokemon Fit 2
Not pictured here (but you can see them in the group picture at the top of this post): Jolteon and Eevee. I think Eevee looks especially adorable! Shout out to Exeggutor who ended up with a nice looking plush.
Pokemon Fit 3
The three legendary birds (Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres) and Mew~
Mewtwo should be included in the next release.
Pokemon Fit 4
Ducks! This release included Farfetch’d (who looks amazing) and Golduck. Psyduck should be in the next release.
Pokemon Fit 5
Grab bag of plush! Sandshrew, Diglet, Machamp, Geodude, and Alakazam.
Geodude looks so grumpy, I just want to hut him!
Pokemon Fit 6
Dragonite (Dratini and Dragonair will be next batch), Drowzee, Arcanine, and Voltorb! I love Dragonite’s plush, he is precious.
Pokemon Fit 7
Ekans, Rattata, Jigglypuff, and Meowth! (Persian will be next batch!)
Plush I’m excited for in November: Clefairy, Vulpix, Raichu, and Dragonair.
Plush I’m excited to see (although I don’t collect them): Tauros, Cubone, Ponyta, Abra, Vileplume, Zubat, Pidgey, and Butterfree!
That wraps up this post. Until next time~
We have some super exciting news for this week, so let’s dive in.
The Pokemon Center announced a brand new exclusive plush line. Called “Pokemon Fit”, these plush are billed as being super cute and small enough to easily hold in your hand.
This batch will go on sale at all Pokemon Centers & Stores in Japan July 13th (Friday) and includes 30 Pokemon:
Alakazam, Arcanine, Articuno, Diglett, Ditto, Drowzee, Ekans, Exeggutor, Farfetch’d, Geodude, Golduck, Dragonite, Eevee, Flareon, Jigglypuff, Jolteon, Kangaskhan, Machamp, Meowth, Mew, Moltres, Omanyte, Pikachu, Rattata, Sandshrew, Shellder, Staryu, Vaporeon, Voltorb, and Zapdos.
This release is marked as “Part 1”. Part 2 is scheduled for November 2018 and will include the remaining 121 Pokemon from the original Pokemon Red and Blue 151 line-up. So if you love generation 1 Pokemon and don’t see your favorite in this release, don’t fear!
Starting July 21st (Saturday), Pikachu’s Closet will be adding a girl Pikachu to their plush line-up. The new plush will cost the same as the currently released boy Pikachu plush: 3,780 yen with tax.
Pikachu Closet Girl Clothes
Along with girl Pikachu, two new clothing sets (Pajama and Formal Wear) will also be released on the same day. Although these sets are billed as being “for girls”, there is nothing stopping you from dressing boy Pikachu in them if you so chose.

This post will cover all the Banpresto prize releases for the month of April.
As a reminder, the items listed on this post are not available for sale in stores, such as the Pokemon Center. They are only sold from Banpresto for use as prizes in game centers. Everything can be bought from second hand sellers, however, what is sold and at what price is completely up to the discretion of the re-sellers.
April brings us three new series (Pokemon Life With Pikachu, Tsuretette Plush, and Mogu-Mogu Time) along with the return of some favorites (Korotto Manmaru and Kororin Friends) along with the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line.
Pokemon Life With Pikachu starts in April with two different releases.
A set of 2 large Pikachu plush (about 28 cm long) will start appearing in game centers April 5th (Thursday).
From the stock photo, it seems like these plush are made of softer minky fabric vs the usual velboa. It could be an illusion, but hopefully not!
A set of 2 Pikachu plush tissue box cases (about 30 cm long) will start appearing in game centers April 12th (Thursday).
The next new series, Pokemon Tsuretette, will also have two releases in April.
Tsuretette means to bring along, so this is like a Buddy Pokemon themed series.
A set of two larger sized plush (about 24 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 5th (Thursday).
This set includes Pichu and Cubone.
A set of four smaller sized plush (14 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 16th (Tuesday).
This set includes Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur.
The last new series for April is Mogu-Mogu Time (Snack Time).
The extra large Snacky Snorlax plush (about 36 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 26th (Thursday).
Large plush from the Korotto Manmaru series (about 25 cm tall each) will start appearing in game centers April 12th (Thursday).
This set includes Raichu, Voltorb, and Ampharos.
April sees the release of the first four plush from the large Kororin Friends Eeveelution set.
Jolteon, Sylveon, Vaporeon, and Flareon will start appearing in game centers from April 24th (Tuesday).
Each plush should be around 26 cm from head to tail.
Last but not least, there will be two releases from the general Pokemon Sun & Moon line.
A large Poipole plush (about 24 cm tall) will start appearing in game centers April 5th (Thursday).
An extra large Magnemite plush (54 cm long) will start appearing in game centers April 24th (Tuesday).
That wraps up the exciting Banpresto releases for April!
Until next time~
