February brought lots of new merch, especially with the 20th anniversary being on the 27th!
I was in Japan for the later part of February, and actually got to be there for two of the Pokemon Center promos, making it an extra exciting month for me! I'll be including a handful of my own photos this time.
Early February kicked off the US 20th anniversary merch!
Full list: http://www.pokemon20.com/en-us/products.html#all/
It seems they have been assigning more concrete release dates to the merch, but some things appearedearly!
(These two started popping up at Gamestops early, but I believe the official release was supposed to be 2/1!)
Mew and Pikachu 20th Anniversary Plush!
I also found two additional Pikachu options at Toys R Us a few days after finding these:
(I believe the Pikachu on the left is $24.99 and the winking Pikachu is $19.99 but please correct me if I am wrong)
Additionally, the special edition Mew tomy appeared at Gamestops this month as well ($9.99)
BreakPoint (latest TCG set) launched in the US on February 3rd (my local stores were surprisingly good about sticking to the street date this time...so good that they were late!)
Pikachu "We Meet Again" cushions
(Cushion is on the right, plush from January is on the left!)

HAPPY 20TH ANNIVERSARY!!
There were lots of goods slated for this day! First and foremost, you could to download Red, Blue, Yellow, and Green (Japan) from the eShop! Those in Japan could also pick up a special box containing your download code, a town map, and a magnet of the game cartridge!
Those in Japan could also pick up a 1:1 Kanto Starter plush!
These guys were pretty big and heavy, especially Bulbasaur. Here's me holding him:
The Pokemon Center also released a line of nostaligic dot-sprite goods, including cushions, blind packed T-Shirts, charms, pencil cases, and more!

A 20th anniversary card deck sets also launched, alongside these playmats. I'll try to take some photos of my cards soon~
Additionally, preorders opened for the next Pokemon Nendoroids: Red and Green!
There were also a few miscellaneous goods:
Adorable Pikachu keychain
Napping Pikachu plush
The US (and Canada, I believe!) got these New 3DS systems that came with Red, Blue and matching limited edition faceplates!
Champion Red went up (in the middle of the night I believe?) on Pokemoncenter.com. Unfortuantely it sounds like he sold out really fast :( There should be a restock coming, but no specific date has been announced yet!
These shirts also launched on Pokemoncenter.com, but it seems all but the kids' size sold out quickly!
I do not see dates on any of the other 20th Anniversary Pokemoncenter.com merchdandise, but definitely keep checking Pokemon20.com for updates!
Here's what's coming for March!
Keep your eyes peeled for these Celebi items (US) this month! The cards were due on 03/01 but it sounds like many stores were late putting them out? Were you guys able to find them? (I did a few days late!)
UFO Catcher Prizes: Eevee, Leafeon, and Glaceon!
Big Eevee too!

As a bonus, if you collect all four sets, you can use the extra blocks to make a Mew!
