Update (Friday, November 19th, 2021 at 11:45 a.m. PT): Listings for the Lucario plush have appeared on the US and CA Pokémon Center sites. As of this update, pre-orders are currently being accepted and the plush is expected to ship in late April 2022.


Lucario is perhaps the most famous of the Pokémon introduced in Diamond and Pearl. It’s in Smash, made regular appearances in the anime – it even had a movie! Naturally it’s gotten plenty of merchandise too, but this latest announcement could prove exceptionally popular…

Yes, that’s a 120cm tall life-size Lucario plush, available to pre-order via the Japanese Pokémon Center until December 16th, 2021. The fuzzy steel type will then be shipped out in May 2022.


While it’s got a soft exterior, the plush does have plastic joints, allowing you to pose it as you see fit.

We’ll be sure to let you know if and when the life-size Lucario arrives in the west.
