Pokemon Center Eevee Poncho Limited Edition Goods

The Japan Pokemon Centers are releasing a bunch of new Eevee Poncho goods on October 7, 2017. The goods all feature Eevee with Eeveelution ponchos.

There are all 8 Eeveelution versions of plush toys and plush mascot keychains. After making many different poncho versions of Pikachu, it looks like the Pokemon Centers have moved on to Eevee. We got our first look at the Eevee ponchos with the limited edition Pokemon Store Okinawa Eevee Arcanine plush toy poncho. There were 2 different versions made (mouth open and mouth closed). Now the Pokemon Centers have decided to make all 8 Eeveelutions.

In addition to the plushies and mascots, there are several more items including Deck Sleeves, File Folders, Candy Tins, Ponchos, gashapon vending figures and more….

These will go on sale on October 7, 2017, in Japan, while supplies lasts. Of course you can buy them at Pokevault.com.

Surprise, Surprise Shiny Mimikyu Plush Toy Secretly Released

To my surprise on my weekly trip to the Pokemon Center in Fukuoka, Japan, I stumbled upon what looked like a dark colored Mimikyu plush toy. I thought maybe I was still half asleep, but as I got closer, it hit me, this was actually a shiny version of Mimikyu!!!

There was actually no warning of the Mimikyu release on any of the Pokemon Center websites or news sites until after the actual release. It was definitely a pleasant surprise.

My thoughts are that because Mimikyu is so popular, the release was kept a secret to help control the amount of people at the Pokemon Center at one time. It sometimes gets a little crazy!!! It was also released on a weekday and not a weekend so there would not be people fighting over them.

Mimikyu is identical to the original Pokemon Center Mimikyu, except for its grey color. Its very squeezably soft. The material is loose, just like if it were a real sheet covering Mimikyu. A great addition for any Pokemon collector. It is also made in the Philippines and not China which has been the trend for 2017.

On the same day I got another surprise, the Pokemon Center also released a new Lycanroc plush toy. This one is called “Dusk” form. Its very similar to the Midday form, but with a nice orange color instead. This was a great surprise.

I was able to buy the Takara Tomy version of the Dusk form Lycanroc a couple weeks before, but I am glad that the Pokemon Center also release one. What makes it even better is that the two versions are quite different.

On the Pokemon Center version, the legs are long and skinny but it does manage to stand up. Of course the stitching is excellent as usual with the Pokemon Center plush toys. There is alot of detail and its a definite must for any Pokemon Collector.

Of course you can still find both of these, as well as the original Mimikyu on Pokevault.com. But with the holidays fast approaching, they might not be around for too long.

Japan Pokemon Center Inkay Campaign Merchandise

As most of you know by now, the Pokemon Centers in Japan have a new campaign that is dedicated solely to the adorable squid Pokemon, Inkay. On January, 18, 2014, the Pokemon Centers in Japan released a bunch of new merchandise solely featuring Inkay. Lets take a look at some of the items that were available.

First, a personal favorite of mine, the large lifesize Inkay plush toy. This plush toy is awesome. It measures about 15″ or 38cm tall. It has very soft fur and very nice, detailed stitching. This was probably the most popular item from this campaign. It seems almost everyone had one in their basket at the Pokemon Center.

The next item I would like to introduce is the Inkay ceramic plate. This is a set of 2 gorgeous ceramic plates. It is very similar to the Christmas plates that come out every year, but you get two plates in this set, one big and one small. The glaze on the plate shines. They are great to use, or display on your shelf. Along with the ceramic plate, there was also a ceramic cup and bowl.

 There was also several keychains, charms and straps including a rubber keychain, a  plush keychain where the chain can be reversed so that Inkay is upside down, and a  set of two charms. One of the charms features Inkay right-side up and the other is  upside-down.

For every day use, there was an iPhone 5 soft cover that can be used on either your  iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s. It protects your iPhone from bumping around and getting  damaged. I have one, they work great!!! There is a plush Inkay pass case which can  be used when you ride the train or bus. Just put your magnetic train or bus card in the clear slot on the bak of the pass case and when you get on the train or bus, just wave Inkay over the sensor. Very cool. And of course, there is a plush coin purse for all the female Inkay fans.

For those of you who are students, you might like some of the school supplies that came out. There was a file folder to store your school papers in, a ball pen, mechanical pencil, and a spiral notebook.

For more pictures and descriptions of the Inkay Campaign items, be sure to visit Pokevault.com.

2012 Japan Pokemon Center Eevee Collection Goods

Sorry for posting this so late, but there have been alot of wonderful “Eevee Collection” merchandise released at the Pokemon Centers in Japan. The Pokemon Centers are releasing merchandise in 4 different rounds. So far round one, two and three have been released with round four due out in early December.

 Some of the first merchandise to go on sale were the Takara Tomy eeveelution plushies. They released all 8 of the eeveelutions (Eevee, Espeon, Flareon, Jolteon, Leafeon, Umbreon and Vaporeon). These 8 plushies were sold almost exclusively at the Pokemon Centers in Japan. Amazon Japan sold the Eevee plush, but not any of the 7 others. There was a very very limited number of toy stores that also sold them. These plushies are in the sitting position.

They are very detailed and well made. Most of them are about 6-7″ tall (15-17cm).  They come with a new special re-designed Takara Tomy paper tag that features the Eeveelution on it. They are relatively soft but are nice and sturdy and well made.

Round two was a huge release of merchandise.  The Pokemon Center was absolutely crazy. People were pushing and shoving to grab any and everything that they could find. There was a “Pokemon Center” version of all 8 plush characters. This time it was a standing version. Like the Takara Tomy plushies, the Pokemon Center Eevee plushies also had newly designed very large paper tags in addition to a long white “Eevee Collection” tag. These plushies are slightly smaller than the Takara Tomy version, but are much softer and have better detail. They are very similar to the canvas plushies that were sold a couple years ago, but are bigger.

All 8 characters were also made into a set of a coaster and a placemat. These were highly sought after and sold out immediately. They are made of nice fabric. The coaster matches the placemat. Each eeveelution was also featured on plastic cups. These cups are awesome. They are made of melamin which is a type of hard plastic. They are very sturdy and the Eeveelution image seems to be printed or painted on the cup, so it will last a long time. There was also a bowl and plate set that also sold out within minutes.

One of the best items was the Eevee plush cushion. It is perfect to put on your bed or lay on when you watch tv. Its absolutely stunning. I really recommend it.

All 8 Eeveelution mini Pokedoll plush keychains also went on sale the same day. They are perfect to attach to your keyring, suitcase, purse or just about anywhere. Very cute small versions of the Pokedoll plushies that were sold a few years ago.

There was also a vanity bag and a mini pouch that featured all 8 Eeveelutions. One of the most popular items was the Eeveelution lap blanket. It was a small blanket made to put on your lap or for a very small child. It was made in very limited quantity and was gone within a matter of minutes.

Each of the 8 Eeveelutions was also featured on a clear file folder. Its been 3 years since the last Eeveelution file folders were released, so this was a nice surprise. The file folders are size A4 which is the same size as a normal 8.5 x 12 sheet of paper, so these are great to use at school.

There was also a limited edition cookie tin that came with Eeveelution shaped cookies, three different Nintendo 3DS cartridge cases and a Nintendo 3DSLL Eevee silicon cover.

The third round of goods from the Eevee Collection was Pokemon TCG card gaming supplies. There was an Eevee deck box featuring all the Eeveelution characters and three different sets of Eeveelution deck sleeves. The deck boxes and sleeves sold out in less than 15 minutes with hundreds of people grabbing as many as they could before they were gone.

There was also an Eevee Collection 3 ring hard cover type binder that you can store your cards in. The binder also came with 8 limited edition Eeveelution promo cards. The Eevee one is a holofoil and the other 7 are not.

The 9th card will be given away on December 14th with the release of the two new booster pack series.

Also, while supplies lasts, if you bought 2000 yen or more worth of Eeveelution items, you received a limited edition Eeveelution postcard.  Eevee, Espeon, Flareon, Glaceon, Leafeon, Umbreon and Vaporeon were all featured as well as a the mystery postcard which was a group shot featuring all 8 characters. These postcards are real postcards which can be used. Of course they require a stamp in order to be sent.

Stay tuned for part 4 of the Eeveelution merchandise.

Pokemon Time Campaign #4 Goods Have Arrived

Finally there are some new Pokemon Time goods at the Pokemon Centers in Japan. Its been quite a while since the last round of Pokemon Time goods was sold. This time its from the 4th campaign. There are 10 characters this time and I must say that I like the characters this time around. Charizard, Bulbasaur, Venusaur, Dragonair, Oddish, Growlithe,  Psyduck, Magikarp, Gengar and Poliwag.

There was 10 different phone straps made, one of each of the 10 characters. In addition there was also all 10 characters made into clear file folders. Oddish, Poliwag, Charizard and Growlithe were the only characters to be made into square-shaped spiral notebooks. These are very cool and seem to be very popular.

There was also 3 different character pens that came in plastic tubes. Each of the pens features 4 Pokemon Time characters. A day planner/calendar for 2013 that features all the different characters with a monthly calendar, memo pages and yearly calendar is very nice.

Probably the best items in the campaign are the Growlithe deck sleeves and the deck box with all 10 characters. Anyone who plays the Pokemon TCG will love these items. The sold out extremely fast at the Pokemon Centers.

This campaign was timed for the start of school, so it seems to be focused mainly on school supplies. The last campaign had earphones, computer mouses, mousepads and more recreational items. But I really like the characters this time around.

Of course you can always find these products available while they last at Pokevault.com. Hopefully they will add some more items to this campaign, but for now that is all the items that have been released. Im really looking forward to the next Pokemon Time campaign. Stay tuned.

By Suzie Q

The Pokemon Centers in Japan have just released 4 new sets of metal charms. Keldeo normal and resolution formes, Meloetta Aria and Pirouette formes, Black Kyurem normal and overdrive forme and White Kyurem normal and overdrive forms.

These metal charms are all about 1″ or 2.5cm tall. Made of metal and very detailed. They are additions to the existing 2011-2012 set of all 646 Pokemon character charms. Just released on July 7th here in Japan. They are sure to be a big hit!

They were only sold at the Pokemon Centers in Japan and not sold in any stores or sold outside of Japan. They were made in very limited quantity and will only be sold for a very short time. The metal charms are extremely popular in Japan and all over the world. They create mad frenzies everytime they go on sale.

Each charm comes with a metal clip that can clip on to your keychain, bag, purse, or just about anywhere that you would like to clip it on to. I have even seen some very cool necklaces made from these charms.

For all your other Pokemon needs, dont forget to check out Pokevault. They have thousands of rare Pokemon items including plush toys, Pokedolls, charms, cards, deck boxes, dice boxes, card sleeves, playmats, keychains, straps, figures and just about anything you can think of that is Pokemon related.

New Meloetta Plush Toys

By Pokevault

The Pokemon Center just released the first of the Meloetta plush toys. They have both the Aria and Pirouette forms. These plushies are really cool. They are similar to a doll in appearance, but the overall design is great. Of course they are well made.

Meloetta Plush

The Meloetta plush toys are made of nice fabric. Its very soft to the touch. The way the hair is made of fabric is also very unique. It is flexible and can obviously move around which is very nice.

The best part of them is probably the face. The eyes are really large and the stitching is very detailed. It really makes the plush look alive.

The only downside of these new plushies is the fact that they can not stand up without falling over. Obviously by the size of their legs, there is no way that they will stand up, but they are still really cool.

 

Meloetta Plush

There was also some other Meloetta merchandise released like file folders, stickers, hair ties, bags, straps, soft gel-type charms, memo pads, a hat, a face towel and much more. Come check it out.

Ninetales charm

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.
