If I’ve learned one thing from being in Japan it’s that cute things always have an edge over not-cute things. Nowhere is that more apparent than the Pokémon Center, where Pikachu is king only because Mimikyu keeps selling out immediately and can’t rightfully take over. While the standard size plushes are always a hit, these Pokémon Dolls modeled more closely after the in-game plushes are practically irresistible. Thanks to Pokéshopper, we’ve managed a look at some brand new ones coming soon to catch your eye.

The likes of Rowlet, Litten and Popplio have already gotten this treatment, but a few new faces are making their debut. This new trio consists of Rockruff and the Alolan forms of Raichu and Vulpix, all three of which are some of the most popular of the newest Pokémon. They’re upcoming and Japan only as of right now, and would cost about twelve dollars after conversion. The US Pokémon Center has been pretty good about keeping up with releases lately and providing these heart-melting friends to western fans, so fingers crossed!

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
