When I originally glanced through the announcement for this collaboration between Pokemon and Anna Sui, I thought the items were pretty standard Anna Sui-esque and seemed alright.
Then I did a double take over the prices.
My personal opinion: I don’t think any of the items are nice enough to warrant the price tag. The design is so-so and is the same on every single item (a pet peeve of mine) and it’s just the Anna Sui rose with a fairly default art style Pikachu. But if you are a die-hard Anna Sui fan and you want to show off that you have brand plus Pikachu, then I guess you will like these items!
The line-up was fairly small and included things like hand towels, pouches, a notebook, bags, and jewelry (not pictured here).
Anna Sui 2
The deco tape set with matching box was pretty cute and decently priced!
That wraps up this week’s Pokemon Center Report.
Until next time~

Get ready for the month of “It’s not quite Halloween but I guess it’s fine” aka September!
This month gives us some Halloween plush, the continuation of the Korotto Manmaru Colorful series, and a couple other surprises.
What is Banpresto?
Banpresto is a company that manufactures plush, figures, towels, glasses, and other items to be used as prizes for claw machines in game centers as well as kuji prizes. None of these items are designed to be sold directly through stores and cannot be found in Pokemon Centers. Note that the exception to this are Pokemon kujis, however even in this case, you have to win the prizes; you can’t buy the prize you want directly. Typically, you can find these prize items in game centers or sold second hand through auction sites, amazon, or other similar stores.
Most Pokemon releases from Banpresto drop on Tuesday or Thursday, with occasional releases on Friday. Ichiban Kuji generally goes on sale on Saturdays.
Some of the bigger name game centers in Japan include: Adores, Sega, Round 1, Namco, and Taito Station. Keep in mind, not all game center locations stock all prizes.
Two releases from the Poke Gyutto (Poke-Squeeze) and Poke Dakko (Poke-Hug) lines will come out September 19th (Thursday).
Both sets include Vulpix (Kanto version) and Piplup, with the sitting plush measuring 24 cm and the laying plush measuring about 25 cm each.
From the I Love Gengar line, an extra large Gengar plush (measuring about 34 cm) will start appearing in game centers around Japan from September 10th (Tuesday).
The Colorful Korotto Manmaru series continues with brown for September. This set, which will start appearing in game centers from September 12th (Thursday) includes Cubone, Hitmonlee, and Eevee, with each plush measuring about 22 cm.
A set of smaller Halloween themed plush (Pikachu x 2, Raichu, Pichu), each measuring about 13 cm, will also start appearing in game centers around Japan from September 12th (Thursday).
From the Mogu-Mogu (Snack) Time series…
An extra large plush of Slowpoke, measuring about 40 cm, will start appearing in game centers from September 19th (Thursday).
Smaller sized plush of Raichu, Meowth, Gengar, and Ditto, each measuring about 12 cm, will start appearing in game centers from September 26th (Thursday).
Last but not least, from the general Pokemon Sun & Moon series…
An extra large Lugia plush, measuring about 40 cm, will start appearing in game centers from September 12th (Thursday).
A set of smaller sized mascot plush with little elastic bands for easy attachment will start appearing in game centers from September 12th (Thursday). This set includes Pikachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle, with each plush measuring about 12 cm.
A set of mini plush pouches (Pikachu x 3, Pokeball x 1), each measuring about 10 cm, will start appearing in game centers from September 26th (Thursday).
That wraps up the Banpresto releases planned for September! What are you most excited for?
Until next time!
