By Brian Grabow

The Pokemon Centers in Japan have just released 3 new Pokedolls today. They are Serperior, Samurott and Emboar. These Pokedolls are larger than normal size. It is about twice the size of a normal Pokedoll and of course about twice the cost. It is one of the large size Pokedolls, similar to Reshiram and Zekrom that were released last month.

Check out my video of the 3 new Pokedolls on youtube if you want to see them up close and the size compared to a normal size Pokedoll.

Minccino And Emolga Large Size Pokemon Plushies

By Brian Grabow

The Pokemon Centers in Japan have just released two new large size plushies. They are Minccino and Emolga, or Chillarmy and Emonga as they are commonly known in Japanese.

Chillarmy Large Plush
Minccino Giant Size Plush Toy

These are only sold in Japan at the Pokemon Centers and not at any toy stores. These two large plush toys are bigger than most large size plush toys, but smaller than the lifesize plushies.They both have incredibly soft fur that is like velvet. Very soft to the touch. They are very nicely detailed too.¬† Both of their faces have nice stitching and are very adorable. The eyes are really nicely made and Minccino’s ears are also really cool. Very nice quality I think.

Both plushes are about 14-15 inches tall (about 35-38cm), so they are quite big. Not as big as the lifesize plushies, but pretty big.  The Minccino plushie is alot wider than Emolga Pokemon plush because of its gigantic ears, but they are both similar in height.

Pokemon Scraggy (Zuruggu) Lifesize Plushie

By Brian Grabow

At the Pokemon Centers in Japan, there is a new promotion campaign. It features the new character Scraggy. Scraggy is known in Japanese as Zuruggu. This new character is one of the generation V Pokemon characters. He looks similar to Croagunk, but is yellow. The Pokemon Centers in Japan have made some new merchandise featuring this character.

Scraggy lifesize plush toy

There is a lifesize plush Scraggy which is a staggering 23″ (58cm) tall. Its absolutely huge. Its the same size as the lifesize Tsutarja, Mijumaru and Pokabu that came out a while back. There is also a smaller¬† Scraggy plush toy (similar in size to a pokedoll, but slightly bigger), 5 different charms, a pen, eraser, clear files, a Scraggy shaped hat, 2 different straps, a pouch that is the shape of a plush Scraggy doll, 2 clear file folders, a tomy plush Scraggy, and more. Don’t wait. This is a limited time campaign, so it won’t be available for long. You can buy all these great items at Hardrock-Pokemon. These items are very popular and will sell out very fast, especially the lifesize Scraggy plushie.

The charms are very interesting. They come in an egg shaped plastic package and contain one charm. The charm inside is random, so you don’t know which one you will get.

Pokemon Shiny Legendary Beast Pokedolls Lottery Prize

By Brian Grabow

The ultimate prize has come to the Pokemon Centers in Japan. Shiny versions (alternate colors) of Suicune, Entei and Raikou plush Pokedolls. These three legendary beast Pokemon plushies are absolutely gorgeous. They are different color versions from the original Pokedolls. Suicune has a light blue main instead of purple, Entei is brownish color instead of red and Raikou is orange in color with a yellow mane instead of yellow with a purple mane. They have a different color shiny tag and are absolutely gorgeous.

Now the bad news. These three beautiful plush toys are not for sale. They are the top prize in the 2010 Pokemon Center lottery. There are 400 colored marbles that are in a bingo-stlye machine. When you spend 2500 yen (about $30) at the Pokemon Center from now until mid-July, you will receive one chance to win them. The top prize is one set of all 3 legendary beast Pokemon pokedolls. The lottery consists of 4 different color marbles. White, yellow, red and blue Red is the top prize for the set of 3 pokedolls and there is only 1 red marble out of 400. So your odds of winning are 1 in 400. The blue marble is the second place and allows you to choose 1 of the 3 Pokedolls. Not sure how many, but I think less than 5 out of 400. The 3rd prize is the yellow marble and it gets you a set of shiny (alternate color) legendary beast charms.
