On December 26, 2011, the Pokemon Centers in Japan released a total of 78 different sets of charms. These Pokemon charms were released in sets of 1 charm, 2 charms, 3 charms, 4 charms and 8 charms. They mostly consisted of the Kanto Region Pokemon from Generation I and related evolutions.
The Pokemon Centers are going to make an unprecedented all 646 Pokemon characters. They will be produced in 3 waves. The first wave was December 26th, the second wave January 14th and the final wave is scheduled for February 14, 2012. Each charm is made of metal and has a clasp so that you can clip it on to your bag, keychain, luggage, or just about anywhere.
Some of the same charms were released back in 2009, but alot of the designs of the characters are new.
Here is the complete list for the 1st wave of charms:
Some of these charms, like the Eevee evolution line, sold out in less than 5 minutes. Others like Growlithe, Nintales, Mew and a few others sold out within an hour. Most of these charms have now already sold out as the date for wave #2 approaches. For those of you who wish to buy Pokemon charms, they are getting very scarce and I suggest getting them soon before they become very difficult to get and very expensive.
Stay tuned for our next article that will feature wave #2 of Pokemon charms. Most of them have not been made before, so they are sure to be very popular.
There is a new lifesize plush toy released in Japan. This time it is Pansage, or Yanappu as it is referred to in Japanese. This Pokemon plushie is huge. It measures 25″ (64cm) tall and 20.5″ (54cm) wide. Far bigger than any other Pansage plush toy made to date.
You can see it here next to a can of juice for a size comparison. This is the 5th lifesize plushie to come out from the generation V character series. The other lifesize plush were Oshawott, Tepig, Snivy and Scraggy. Continue reading “Pokemon Lifesize Pansage Plush Toy”

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.
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.
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.
The Pokemon Centers in Japan have released two new pokedolls, Reshiram and Zekrom. These two new pokedolls are bigger than the normal pokedolls. Similar in size to the DX pokedolls of Dialga, Palkia and Darkrai that were sold back in 2007, but slightly smaller. They are about 2-3 times as big as a normal pokedoll.
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.
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 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. Continue reading “Pokemon Shiny Legendary Beast Pokedolls Lottery Prize”
