A few of you said that you wanted a merch news round up so here we are! I will likely be posting these every Sunday!
In addition to what was announced, I'll also go through what was released this week! (at the time of writing of course)
I plan on making these as search friendly as possible/adding links when possible.

Not much news this week because of the holidays but there were a few things. Let me know if I missed anything!

First off, an image of the CapChara Volume 3 was released! These will be out in February.
There's Pikachu, Mew, Dedenne, and Gengar!

Next up, another image was published for the upcoming kid figures that are releasing in April.
One Pokemon is still a mystery!

There were many items released this week!

First off was the lucky bags!


Then we had the Mix Au Lait promotion


Which included 3 new gachapon sets


Then there were Pokemon Dolls accesories


Let me know your thoughts on this weeks merch!
I absolutely love the Saiko Soda/Mix Au Lait gachapon sets! I can't wait until I get mine in person!

I'm still filling in some stuff, but here is the current 2019 catalog for new Pokemon merchandise.
let me know if I'm missing anything!
Note: Everything is in past tense so I don't have to go back and edit it at the end of the year

Thanks for doing this! Been hard to find a good updated list of merch releases, lately. I've been feeling so behind >_>
You're welcome! I'm gonna try and do this at least once a week
I just love, Love, LOOOVE you! And these posts of course! So many items I need that I missed! And the new Kids? I need me a whole set, STAT.

Keep these up! I’m sure the Pkmn community desires posts like these. It’s been quite about new releases minus a few stellar members, but they can’t get everything. Bless their souls!

I’m itching to find a place that’ll have preorders for the newest Kids set!!

Thank you so much! I'll definitely try!

Yeah I haven't seen anyone have it for preorder? Maybe closer to release they will. I love the meltan!

What exactly are those CapCharas?

And to echo what others have said, thank you so much for posting this stuff. It's very much appreciated!!

You're welcome!

Capcharas are figures that you put together I guess? The heads usually have a big enough opening to put something in also
here is a video someone posted opening/assembling them

I owe you my Life.
Seriously though, thanks for this! I loved seeing pokeshopper's updates, and while I get why he stopped, it made me feel like I was missing ALOT. So thank you again!

You're welcome!
Yeah that's one reason why I started actually lol. That and I'm hoping it may liven the community a bit since it's been a bit quiet here aside from sales stuff

Thank you for doing this! Ahh I’m going to have to try to get most of those flower gachas, they’re too cute! Will you be collaborating with anyone on this? You know, in case you get sick or have a vacation or something? I’d hate if you got overworked doing this by yourself!

You're welcome!

I love the flower gachas too! I might try for a full set because they're so adorable...

No I probably won't, I don't really go on vacations except for anime conventions but there's always downtime in the hotel once the con closes!
I also keep a draft on my phone as merch is announced so it's easier!

Thank you so much for these, they are so helpful! Especially for those new to collecting like myself lol

I love the Mix Au Lait gashapons too...honestly Saiko Soda is still my favorite collection right now -- even though I only have one keychain, I'm trying to collect it all. I just adore those 80s memphis vibes!

And the soda design in particular happens to remind me of something special I had as a child, so it's nostalgic as well.

You're welcome!

I really hope they continue with other pokemon for the mix au lait/saiko soda promos!

I saw a some fan art of other pokemon in the style and it was so cute lol

Hey do you happen to know anything on the 40 inch snolax cushion that was suppose to be released in December? I feel like it either got pushed or cancelled. I'm hoping he wasn't cancelled, though!


It was preorder only it seems like. There hasn't been updates on delays or cancellations from what I've seen

Thanks for making this. I honestly like them. I want that Mimikyu house to put my Pokedoll in.

You're welcome!
I'm tempted on it too, the accessories are so cute
