Pokemon Center Reshiram And Zekrom Pokedolls

By Brian Grabow

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.

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 smallerĀ  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.

Which Japan Pokemon Center Generation V Plush Toys Are The Best?

By Tony Tanaka

In September, 2010, the Pokemon Generation V collection was released. There are approximately 155 completely new characters. They vary from previous Pokemon character designs as a new artist drew them. Although there is not much known yet about these characters, which ones seem to be the most popular? So far only a handful of these characters have become known. Tsutarja, Pokabu, Mijumaru, Emonga, Kibago, Meguroko, Mamepato, Munna and Musharna were all made in small plush toys already, so they seem to be quite popular. Tsutarja, Pokabu and Mijumaru are probably the most popular of the characters so far. These seem to be the three main characters of the new generation V set of characters. Tsutarja is a snake, Pokabu is a pig and Mijumaru is an otter.

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.
