It looks like Funko has announced some new Pokemon figures. Funko announced a new Pokemon Pop, and this time it's Bulbasaur! From the Funko Blog,
Pop! Pokémon: Bulbasaur
Grow your Pop! collection with the latest Pokémon Pop!
who also happens to be a rare Grass- Poison-type.
Train with your Pop! Bulbasaur frequently and this
adorable Pokémon might be your best friend or
maybe just take a nap. Additional Pokémon will
be available every season.
Here's an out-of-box look at Bulbasaur:

What do guys think!
[Potential spoiler about upcoming Pokemon Pops...]
There is also a rumor/a leak floating around that more Pokemon Pops could be coming soon. Listings for Squirtle, Charmander, Meowth, Mewtwo, and a Chase were found in a store's inventory system. The store was not identified, and the image was found on Instagram. Please take this with a grain of salt. There is really no way to confirm if these are going to happen until Funko makes an official announcement. I put this as a spoiler since they may or may not be made.
