Both Pikachu and Eevee have gotten the esteemed Build-A-Bear treatment over the past year, and it looks like Pokémon is going to be pushing out a third plush option before the year ends. That’s right, Charmander is coming to Build-A-Bear.

While it’s upsetting that, once again, the remaining two Kanto starters are getting the shaft, I will say that what’s being offered is pretty awesome. The plush of Charmander itself will be available both in-store and online; however, you’ll want to make note that there’s a great online-exclusive set for $61 that will include the plush with a sound chip, Great Ball hoodie, Lucario hoodie, and Build-A-Bear Workshop-exclusive TCG promo card. This is, of course, similar to the online-exclusive Pikachu and Eevee sets we saw earlier this year.

While the Lucario hoodie and sound chip included in the Charmander are only available through this online set, the plush on its own will be available for $28, with the Great Ball hoodie being $12.50. The exclusive promo card will also be available with in-store purchases of Charmander.

The plush itself is absolutely adorable, though while his extra long arms are great for hugging, they may turn people away for not being totally accurate. Then again, if you’re really a stickler for total accuracy, you might be upset to find out that there aren’t any glove warmers included inside it.
