Hello everyone!

Welcome to another catch-up Pokemon Center report post.

Pokemon Center Pikachu Eevee 7 Days Story

The super cute Pikachu & Eevee 7 Days Story promotion went on sale July 21st (Saturday).

Although there weren’t any plush in the line-up, there were still plenty of cute things!

7 Days 1

The main highlight were 7 matching Pikachu & Eevee pins, with 14 designs in total.

The pins were each sold separately, however the Pokemon Center offered a deal where if you bought 1 Pikachu and 1 Eevee they gave you a small discount.

7 Days 2

Cute necklaces! One for Pikachu and one for Eevee.

7 Days 3

Cute hair ties! There were two designs each for Pikachu and Eevee: one round or oval version and one bow shaped version.

7 Days 4

This promotion had a bunch of cute clothing items and bags (including the Eevee shirt and hoodie pictured above).

The skirt ended up being surprisingly popular as it was one of the first items to sell out.
