More new Poké goods are arriving in Japanese Pokémon Center stores and other regional locations to help kick off the autumn season. While some products are sporting all those warm fall feels we love so much, other items are more diverse and can be appreciated all year ’round.
We’ve picked out some of our favorite pieces of new merch to share. Check out these finds!
September’s not only a time for saying goodbye to summer; it’s also the month most kids are heading back to school. Why not make things fun and go back in style?
Up first is a series of Halloween stationery goods. From stickers, to notepads, to pencils, this set somehow made Pikachu even cuter than he usually is. This time he’s sporting a witch hat and surrounded by adorably spooky pumpkins, bats and a castle on every item. Each product is priced between 90 and 200 yen ($.82 and $1.80 USD).
Add some yumminess to the Halloween themed mix with these next items: packs of Pikachu pumpkin steamed cake pudding available in flavors like caramel, apple danish, honey, and ham and cheese. Just like the stationery goods above, the packaging for most of these delicious treats is decked out with images of spooky Pikachu. You can snatch these up for 120 yen ($1.10).
A couple functional items for everyday use are also available!
This batch of new smartphone cases is ready to join your collection in ten different designs with a nice range in colors and themes. There are plenty of pastel options if that color scheme is your preference — and if that isn’t the case (pun intended), you also have some darker and more vibrant choices to choose from. They’re all made of flexible and “highly transparent” TPU with a light polycarbonate back panel set. The cases for iPhone 7, iPhone 6/6s, iPhone SE/5s/5 will cost you 2,080 yen ($19 USD), and cases for the iPhone 7 Plus, Xperia ™ XZs/Xperia ™ XZ, Xperia™ X Compact, Xperia™ X Performance are set at 2,180 yen ($20 USD).
If you’re itching for a Nintendo Switch case, here’s a new design to consider! This Compact Smart Pouch is decked out in colorful Pokkén Tournament DX imagery and holds two Joy-Cons, the Switch tablet and three game cartridges inside. You can protect your Switch in style on September 22nd at various retailers in Japan. (The price may vary and will depend on location.)
Takara Tomy is bringing Poké fans even more collectibles with these two small figures. Cosmog and smiling Rowlet can sweetly adorn any shelf or desk your heart desires. Available on September 16th, each figure is priced at 450 yen ($4 USD) and can be found at various locations throughout Japan.
