Build-A-Bear has been enjoying a solid relationship with The Pokémon Company lately, with several of the franchise’s most iconic creatures popping up in workshops across the world. Now it looks like another Pokémon is joining the family – Piplup.

The news comes via Paul Ryan of PokeShopper, a site that thoroughly follows the merchandising of the franchise. While it’s by no means confirmed, Piplup is a fitting addition, with it and several other Generation IV Pokémon finally starting to appear in GO. Not to mention the holidays are the perfect time for an icy blue penguin.
We’ll be sure to reach out to Build-A-Bear Workshop for official comment on the mysterious plush.
