A Devious Feline

By Pheonixxfoxx

Pokemon Black & White, I had mixed feelings about the new game honestly. Most of the new generation 5 Pokemon were so strange and different! Then a certain purple kitty, by the name of Choroneko/Purrloin was revealed! I have always had a soft spot for the evolved cat forms, so my like for Choroneko came as a bit of a surprise. Don’t get me wrong, I have always liked Meowth, Skitty, and Glameow. I just like their evolved forms better for some reason!

Pokemon Center Fukuoka Grand Re-Opening Merchandise

By Brian Grabow

The Pokemon Center in Fukuoka, Japan has just moved to a new location. The Grand Re-Opening is on March 3rd, but I managed to get a pre-opening invitation, so I was able to get the new Pokemon items a day early. This promotion was very similar to the Osaka one last year. There was plushies, a pin badge, keychain, clear folder a pillow and some large size stickers. I was kind of disappointed that there was no charms, but the plushies are very cool, so it made up for it. Continue reading “Pokemon Center Fukuoka Grand Re-Opening Merchandise”

Traveling Companion

By Pheonixxfoxx

Pokedolls are all the rage, but I never really understood why! Well, not until I got my Giratina Origin Form Pokedoll, whom I named Pickles, almost 2 years ago! Pickles came from Nintendo World in New York, a fellow Pokemon collector decided to do a Pokedoll run, to help fellow collectors get their hands on those long sought after Pokedolls. For some reason, I was compelled to have my name added to the list for both a Giratina Origin Form and Shadow Lugia Pokedoll, though I did not really collect either Pokemon. Sadly, Shadow Lugia was out of stock, but I still gladly paid for Giratina Origin Form.

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.

How To Avoid Buying Bootleg Pokemon Plushies

By Masa Nakamura (translated)

Its happened to alot of us! You buy a Pokemon plushie and there is something just not right about it.  You bought it on Ebay, so you think you are safe from counterfeit or bootleg plush toys. BUT, you were wrong! In fact, I see more bootleg Pokemon plush and figures than real ones on Ebay. It kills me to even look at Ebay. Right now I can see over 20 bootleg Umbreon plush toys on ebay as I write this. It has become so common to see bootleg plushies on Ebay, that most people don’t even notice or they can’t tell which ones are real and which ones aren’t.  I will give you some helpful tips so that you don’t buy a fake plush and regret it later.

It is not easy to tell which Pokemon plush toys are real and which ones are bootlegs. The manufacturers have gotten very good at reproducing them to look almost perfect.  For parents, this can be especially hard because most parents don’t know what an Umbreon or an Eevee is. This link is from the Pokemon community regarding bootleg Pokemon plush. Its very helpful

Here is a perfect example of a FAKE UMBREON Plush currently on Ebay.
