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.

All About Pokemon Darumaka And Darmanitan

By Emily

Not a pair to be taken lightly, both Darumaka and Darmanitan wield amazing strength and attacks, though their initial looks may not imply such. The pair has both Darumaka’s cuteness and Darmanitan’s ferocity, adding to their popularity with many fans. With Darmanitan’s unusual ability to change its form, type, and base stats around and Darumaka’s cuteness these characters stand out even more. But even so, a few battle aspects of both Pokemon balance out their seemingly-unbeatable power.

While Darumaka can be easily found in the desert around Route 4, only a few Darmanitan can be caught in the wild. These unusual Darmanitan have the Dream World ability Zen Mode, which is exclusive to just this Pokemon. When its HP gets very low, Darmanitan will revert to its Zen form, which looks very similar to Darumaka except it is now blue. This form adds Psychic as a second type, swaps attack with special attack, reduces speed greatly, and both defenses get a huge boost of fifty points. This character has turned into a very strong tank, and possibly just in the nick of time. But planning is important for this mode as physical attacks are almost useless now. Thankfully Darmanitan can learn a small variety of attacks to cope with both possible forms.
