The second volume of the popular Pokemon Fit Pokemon plush series was released in Japan November 16th (Friday), the same day that Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu & Eevee dropped.
The Pokemon Fit plush series included every single Pokemon from the original 151 list over two release dates – volume 1 plush went on sale back in July (see this post for Pokemon Center photos), and the remaining 121 Pokemon were included in this volume 2 release.
I love the Pokemon Fit series. The style is incredibly cute, the size is perfect, and it gives a chance for some Pokemon who might never have gotten plush to have their first plush.
I unfortunately don’t have photos of every single Pokemon included in this release, but here are some highlights from over the weekend!
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 1
Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Caterpie, Butterfree, Pidgey
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 2
Rattata, Raticate, Raichu, Nidoran♀, Nidoran♂, Clefairy, Clefable
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 2
Vulpix, Zubat, Gloom, Persian, Psyduck, Growlithe, Bellsprout
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 3
Ponyta, Rapidash, Gastly, Haunter, Onix, Krabby
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 4
Chansey, Tangela, Goldeen, Seaking, Mr Mime, Scyther, Jynx
Pokemon Fit Vol 2 – 5
Tauros, Kabuto, Snorlax, Dratini, Dragonair
What do you think of the Pokemon Fit / Sitting Cuties series? Which Pokemon is your favorite?
Until next time~

Pokemon Let’s Go! Pikachu & Eevee

In my attempts to catch up with a bunch of releases that came out all at once, here is part one covering new Pokemon Center plush, card sleeves, Magikarp Jump mini promotion, and a couple miscellaneous items.
First up: new Pokemon Center exclusive plush!
ORAS Plush Again
I should probably say “new” as the majority of plush in this batch came out about two years back or so with the release of Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby.
With such a large number of Pokemon, many of which don’t have official plush, I’m not sure why the Center gave us plush of Pokemon that literally get plush all the time, but the Pokemon Center does what it wants. With that said, the plush are still cute!
Tomy Dusk Lycanroc
Our very first official plush of Dusk Lycanroc came out a few weekends ago!
Along with this adorable Rowlet plush that comes with a little backpack to carry him around in.
Lycanroc & Shiny Mimikyu
Last weekend, two surprise and unannounced Pokemon Center plush were released under the rader: shiny Mimikyu and the second official plush of Dusk Lycanroc!
Two Friday’s ago, a bunch of new Pokemon card sleeves were released along with the release of the “Awakened Heroes” and “Ultra-Dimensional Beasts” booster packs.
A matching deck case featuring beautiful Silvally artwork also went on sale the same Friday.
Schedule Books 2018
Four schedule books for 2018 went on sale last weekend also with little fanfare and no previous announcements.
The two Pikachu books are made of leather and the price for both reflect it, as they’re double the price of the Ditto Transform! and Eeveelution books. All of them are cute!
Last and certainly not least, a very small amount of official Magikarp Jump merchandise came out two weekends back. Not pictured here is the blind packaged acrylic charms. (I have two on the way and I’m excited to see which fish patterns I pull!)
Stay tuned for more exciting Pokemon Center Reports!
Until next time~
