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.

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 Attacks And Natures #1

By Harry Ackerman

Everywhere you see articles and charts etc, on what a Pokemon’s best nature would be, but what if your Pokemon doesn’t have that one specific nature then what? What are some other good natures for it? In article i shall be talking about other good natures, and sometimes bad ones, and some really good moves (or at least in my opinion) for each Pokemon to have. 🙂

Just keep in mind this isn’t 100% accurate because the most beneficial natures for a Pokemon to have can be highly dependent on what moves you teach it.

This time I’ll talk about Pikachu, Lucario, Scrafty, and Vaporeon. 🙂

Now let’s see, for Pikachu anything that would be lowering the speed stat might not be very good for the little fella since that’s Pikachu’s highest base stat, and defense is Pikachu’s lowest stat so you probably wouldn’t want a nature that lowers that either. If you teach your Pikachu all special attacks though, then obviously it’s physical attack stat isn’t needed and therefore would probably be best to have a nature that lowers Attack and raises Special Attack; a modest nature to be precise.

But if you’re like me and teaches your Pikachu a mix of special and physical attacks I’d say it would be best for your Pikachu to have a Neutral nature (just to prevent a few headaches and keep things simple), but it’s up to you and what you teach it. 🙂

And now for Lucario, I’d say anything that lowers his Special Attack isn’t good since that’s his best stat and tends to be used a lot. Especially with what I think is his signature move Aura Sphere.

The Amazing Evolutions Of Eevee Part 1

By Jo

I remember when growing up, I had two favorite Pokemon out of the very first generation. One was Eevee. At the time, Eevee could evolve into three different Pokemon, which was kind of amazing back then, considering. It was unique and tiny and obnoxiously adorable. Not to mention, its evolutions weren’t too shabby either. Now that I’m older, though, I understand how valuable those evolutions really are.

First there’s Vaporeon. It’s strong, elegant, and has an incredible design. Not to mention, it has the highest HP base stats out of all of the Pokemon Eeveelutions, which would mean that it automatically has the highest max base stat out of Eevee’s seven evolutions as well. Eevee is able to evolve into Vaporeon when it’s exposed to the Water Stone. According to its pokedex entries, Vaporeon live close to water and can actually alter its molecular structure so that it is able to “melt” itself into water and become invisible. Vaporeon are often mistaken as mermaids as their tails and soft, rubbery skin are very similar to the lovely myths. Its name comes from the word ‘vapor’, which is when water is in its gaseous form, and ends with the Eeveelution suffix, ‘eon’ (short for ‘evolution’).

Pokemon Favorites, Then and Now

By Rika24

Does anyone remember their first favorite Pokemon, and is it still your favorite? I remember that when I first watched it, Pikachu was my favorite. I still like Pikachu, but he’s nowhere near my top 10 favorites anymore. Pikachu was first knocked out of the number one spot by Charmander, then Eevee, then Charizard. As it stands now, Charizard (tied with Charmander), Jolteon, and Ninetales are my top three favorites.

I remember feeling so bad for the Charmander that was abandoned by his trainer, yet he still waited in the rain. I guess it’s the loyalty and cuteness of Charmander that made him my favorite, beating Pikachu for the top spot. Charmander is still to this day my number one favorite starter. When Charmander evolved into Charmeleon I wasn’t too happy because of how he wouldn’t listen to Ash.

Pokemon “Eeveelutions” In-Depth

By Matt

Last time, I covered the strange mystery that is an Eevee. I will be more specific on how you can get Eevee’s “Eeveelutions” through various games. Through the classic games, a Water Stone would turn Eevee into Vaporeon, the one with lots of HP. A Thunderstone will turn Eevee into Jolteon, and a Fire Stone, into Flareon. To turn Eevee into Espeon or Umbreon, you need to increase its happiness. Before time-based Pokemon games came out (time is the deciding factor for this evolution), you would need a Sun Stone for it to turn into Espeon, the sly, powerful, Psychic-type, or Umbreon, the well-rounded Dark-type.

In games like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, you would need a Solar or Lunar Ribbon, and of course, feed your Eevee some gummies for its IQ to increase. More specifically, in games (starting from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Versions) you would need to evolve Eevee between 12pm and 12am; this is considered daytime in Pokemon. On the other hand, 12am to 12pm is considered night time; it’s required you get your Eevee happy enough to turn it into Umbreon. To get the two recent forms, Leafeon and Glaceon, you would need to also make it happy, but you must be near certain stones. Since there are no places with stones in Johto/Kanto (Heart Gold and Soul Silver Versions), it’s impossible to get a Leafeon or Glaceon there; you may need to trade it from Diamond or Pearl version.

A Teenager’s View On Eevee

By Matt

Eevee is regarded by many as cute, adorable, but most of all, popular. I find myself a liking to Eevee too, since it is definitely one of a kind. Eevee, the Normal-type Evolution Pokemon, can evolve into seven different forms, each with its own strength and element. It all started with the first three:  Vaporeon, the Water-type, Jolteon, the Electric-type, and Flareon, the Fire-type. In fact, I remember seeing these on the actual TV show. Team Rocket (the original antagonists) stole Eevee, as well as its evolved companions. Ash and his group were able to catch them and send them blasting off again. Since I was pretty young, I didn’t know what they were until I heard their names.

Another encounter was when I first started playing Pokemon Coliseum. As the hero, you will start off with Espeon and Umbreon, the Psychic- and Dark-type evolutions of Eevee. The Sinnoh region is currently the most recent one to feature the last evolutions of Eevee: Leafeon and Glaceon, the Grass- and Ice-type. In the game, Eevee is very rare to come upon.
