Before we delve into this week’s Pokemon Center Report, a quick announcement!
I am currently hosting a giveaway over on Twitter for 1 of 3 plush toys coming out as part of the up-coming Pokemon Center exclusive Detective Pikachu promotion.
Golden Week officially started in Japan Monday April 29th, but actually started for most people from the 27th (Saturday). The Japanese Pokemon Center took advantage of this by planning a bunch of releases to coincide with this date so they would have new merchandise on sale throughout the Golden Week period.
Banking on the popularity of the Ditto Transform series, the Pokemon Center decided to try it’s luck with everyone being Wobbuffet.
A little weird in my opinion, and it definitely won’t be as popular as Ditto (sales were pretty mediocre) but hey… it’s cute? Maybe?
Not only were there 6 types of plush instead of the usual 5, but they were all much bigger than I anticipated.
Other than that, the Wobbuffet Party promo was pretty standard for Pokemon Center fare, with matching mascot plush for each plush
Plush pouches and bags of Eevee, Pikachu, and Ditto
The always popular Pokemon Center socks (and a bunch of other maybe cute items!)
Mewtwo Strikes Back
Along with the Wobbuffet release, the Pokemon Center also came out with a couple items for the up-coming Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution movie.
Most of the merchandise line-up was fairly standard and not too exciting but! There was also a new Mewtwo plush and a life-size Mew plush.
That wraps up this week’s exciting Pokemon Center Report!
