Pokemon Bandai Coo’Nuts Figures Released In Japan

There is a brand new type of figure that just got released in Japan. They are called “Coo’Nuts” which is short for “Cool Nuts”.  They are shaped like a peanut. When you try to tip them over, they wobble, but won’t fall down. They are very similar to the old Hasbro Weebles from long ago. They wobble but they don’t fall down.

Series #1 was divided into two parts (Red & Green) and were released in October, 2018, in Japan.


The “Green” set features Pikachu, Eevee, Gengar, Piplup, Mimikyu, Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, Darumaka & Quagsire.


The “Red” set features Pikachu, Eevee, Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Ditto, Meowth, Snorlax, Dragonite & Mew.

These figures came in random “blind” packs. You didn’t know which figure was inside until you opened it. Each figure is about 1.75″ (4.5cm) tall and made of plastic. The package also comes with a small piece of gum. Very cute and very collectible. Series #2 is set to be released in February, 2019. You can purchase these figures on Pokevault while supplies lasts.

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.

Pokemon Bulbasaur

By Anonymous

The Kanto starters, some of the best out of all 5 sets, correct? Probably not, I have my personal preferences, but you have yours. What about professors? Professor Oak of the Kanto region is neutral. All the professors are in my opinion. I have no favorite professor. Pallet Town is where you get your starter in the Kanto region, in Oak’s Lab you can choose a water type Squirt, a fire type Charmander, or a grass and poison type Pokemon, Bulbasaur. Now Bulbasaur has blue skin, or at least some shade of blue, and a green bulb on his back. And I believe red eyes. Don’t get suspicious over the word “saur” in his name. Because he could resemble a dinosaur very easily, the four legs, the reptile build, just the look, but I don’t think he could pass for a full fledge dinosaur.

The first gym in the Kanto region is great for Bulbasaur because it is a Rock and Ground type gym, the leader is Brock. If you beat this gym you get the Boulder Badge, the very first badge out of the eight you need to enter the Kanto Pokemon League. If Bulbasaur has any grass type attack, like Razor Leaf, Vine Whip, or Absorb. Those are very simple well known attacks that some grass Pokemon like Bulbasaur can learn. If Bulbasaur has just one of those attacks, there is a fine chance for you to win the first gym. Grass type attacks have a decent advantage over the rock and ground type Pokemon.

The Older Pokemon Vs. The New Pokemon


Hello Pokemon Fans! Today I would like to discuss generation one vs. generation five. Now in my opinion I think all Pokemon games are amazing I will admit that, but all the Pokemon…not so much. First let me say this in generation one the designs of the Pokemon were outstanding! Along with the naming and battle moves. For example I will use the three starter Pokemon: Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander. Now I loved fire Pokemon (along with dragons) so I chose Charmander. Now Charmander to me was a pretty sweet Pokemon due to the fact that he was almost unstoppable unless against a water type. To me his best move as we progressed was flamethrower. Then he evolved into Charmeleon! Now I was not a fan of Charmeleon but I must say he was stronger and learned even better moves.

Anyways moving on, I thought that the detail was a little bit lazy since all they did was buff Charmander up, add a horn to his head, and rename him Charmeleon. In the end though I was happy for the last evolution was Charizard. Now I was very impressed for I thought he would look like a dinosaur (T-Rex), but no I was wrong he was transformed into an orange dragon with wings. Not only was he just a fire type now but a flying type now too! I must say he was very powerful to so I applaud Game Freak and Nintendo.

Pikachu’s Vacation Synopsis & Review Part 2

By TokoyamiTheDark

After losing the race, Squitle and Bulbasaur are in a bad mood. A somewhat worried Pikachu still tries to make peace, but as usual, no one is listening. Raichu looses electricity from its cheeks, scaring Togepi who beings to cry out of fear. Pikachu then comes to protect it, but get zapped in the tail! The gang start laughing at Pikachu , but now, Pikachu is angry, and, with Raichu, they begin doing a mad cheek to cheek race all around the Pokemon Plaza, paying no attention at all to their surroundings. They run and break a bush labyrinth while running straight.

Meanwhile, Team Rocket sent out their Pokemon, too, and just as Meowth was going to fall asleep, the two electric mice send Arbok, Weezing and Meowth in the air! They also hit Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan the same way and they both got knocked out with a ‘Ding, ding, ding!’ sound.

Charizard is then seen snoring loudly, with its tail on the road. Uh-oh… Pikachu and Raichu still runs fast and step on Charizard’s tail, waking it up with an intense rage! The large dragon soon get in front of the electric mice and blast then away with its powerful wings. They land on a Snorlax, and also get crushed by it. Charizard starts flying without looking where it goes, destrop a part of the park and get its head stuck in a pretend igloo! Meowth tells Charizard to be quiet, but get burned instead! A rope is tied around Charizard’s leg, and everyone starts pulling as mush as they can. But even with all their strength, they aren’t enough strong and get carried away when Charizard stomps the ground with the leg with the rope. Marril, Snubbull, Raichu and Cubone watch and laugh while Charizard is crying.

Kanto Starters And Evolutions: The Bulbasaur Line

By Jo

It’s green, oddly shaped, and seems to have a plant growing on its back. Bulbasaur, the Seed Pokemon, is the first Pokemon listed in the National Pokedex and is also the Kanto region’s grass-type starter. Because Bulbasaur is the first entry in the National Pokedex, by default it is automatically the first grass-type, poison-type, dual-type, and starter Pokemon in the National Pokedex order. Bulbasuar is also the only dual-type, unevolved starter.

According to its pokedex entries, it was born with the bulb on its back and can store enough energy there to last it days without needing food. As it grows, so does its nutrient-filled bulb. Bulbasaur tend to like soaking up the sun’s rays, which also helps its bulb grow. Bulbasaur’s name seems to come from the words ‘bulb’ and ‘dinosaur’, though the word ‘saur’ is actually Greek for “lizard”. Appearance-wise Bulbasaur looks somewhat similar to a frog or toad, though it’s also been speculated over whether or not it could also be based on some form of Dicynodont – a sort of mammal/reptile creature that lived in the Permian period (which would explain its toes). Unlike amphibians, though, Bulbasaur has ears atop its head.

Kanto Region Pokemon Part 2

Bulbasaur is a grass type starter Pokemon, known as the seed Pokemon, and known as Fushigidane in Japan.  It can learn strong attacks like vine whip, razor leaf, and seed bomb.  It can evolve into Ivysaur at level 16, and then into Venusaur at level 32.  In the anime, Ash caught a Bulbasaur during his adventures in the Kanto region, which is now at Professor Oak’s lab, where it helps to stop fights between Pokemon that live there.

Squirtle is a water type starter Pokemon, known as the tiny turtle Pokemon, and known as Zenigame in Japan.  It knows strong moves like water gun, water pulse, and skull bash.  It can evolve into Wartortle at level 16, and then into Blastoise at level 36.  In the anime, Ash caught one during his adventure in the Kanto region, where it was the leader of the Squirtle squad, making all kinds of trouble.  When Ash protected it from Team Rocket, it decided to join Ash on his journey.  Now Squirtle is back with the Squirtle squad when they started to fall apart, though Ash can always call for Squirtle whenever he wants to use it in battles.
