The Pokemon website had a couple exciting announcements today!
First up, Mega Latias, Mega Latios, and Raichu Pokemon Center exclusive plush are coming to Pokemon Centers in Japan April 11th.
I know Raichu collectors will be super excited about this. The plush looks really nice!
There will also be a bunch of dot sprite items released on the same day, including a pikachu and pokeball keychain. More details coming soon!
Next up, a mini Pokemon store is opening in Narita airport April 29th (just in time for Golden Week, a week-ish long holiday in Japan where everyone travels). They will sell two exclusive plush - a Narita pilot Pikachu and a Cabin Attendant Pikachu. Both plush will have smaller mascot plush versions. ( Collapse )
There will also be a pilot pikachu mini towel, acrylic keyholder, clearfile, and cookies.
Finally, April is being billed as the start of Pikachu Focus goods at the Pokemon Center.
There will be three different design concepts with Pikachu as the focus:
Plain yellow "Pikachu" style
Comic book "PIKACHUUU!" style
A softer, northern European "Pikachu in (sic)
the farm" style
Hopefully we will also get more information on goods closer to the release date.
Also, as a last minute reminder, the first Pikachu from the Monthly Pikachu line (affectionately referred to as "Tanaka-Pikachu"), along with Mega Mawile, Mega Gallade, and Mega Gardevoir plush go on sale tomorrow!
What are you excited for?
What sort of Pikachu goods are you hoping to get?
I, personally, am excited for the Narita Pikachus! I always go through Narita airport and would love to add a Narita pilot Pikachu to my collection...and the cabin attendant, too. I'll be going through Narita shortly after it opens, so I am even more excited.
