Pokémon merchandise is a big deal. Maybe not to all people, but to us collectors who have favorite ‘mon, new figures, plushes, and apparel make our world go ’round. In fact, the first thing that comes to mind when a new Pokémon game is announced and new pocket monsters are revealed is how much money I’m going to have to set aside for all the merch that will follow the release.

Pokémon Sword & Shield is no exception! We’ve already been treated to photos of pre-order bonus plush key chains honoring the new games’ starters, and now we finally get a peek at some of the bigger products that will be heading to store shelves in the near future. Thanks to Japanese toy and goods manufacturer San-Ei Boeki, we have a look at some pretty stellar plushes of Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble.

 

 
The bigger plushes San-Ei has shared photos of are part of the company’s Mochifuwa Cushion line, products that make perfect decor and plushes for cuddling. As far as size goes, they range anywhere from 50 to 75 centimeters (20 to 30 inches) in height — so yeah, they’ll be taking up quite a bit of space! Each one will be running 5,000 yen, which is about $47 USD.

The other products shown here are cute little coin pouches featuring the Pokémon starter trio, which all run for 1,600 yen — roughly $15 USD.

With the Pokémon Sword & Shield release approaching quickly (November 15th!), you can bet that we’ll be seeing a whole lot more merch of all the ‘mon making their debut very soon.
