Yesterday morning, they were teased. Later on at night, we caught a glimpse. But now it’s official — Pokémon Squishmallows are here, they’re huggable, and we want one. Or a dozen. We’ve even got official press on the reveal at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, which features Pikachu and Gengar to start off.

 

“Joining forces with Pokémon to bring fans this monumental new offering takes the Squishmallows brand to a completely new level of pop-culture coolness,” said Gerhard Runken, Senior Vice President of Brand & Marketing, Jazwares (the company that makes Squishmallows). Amy Sachtleben, Licensing director for The Pokémon Company International, added “Pokémon continues to offer new and premier ways for fans to experience and show their love for the brand. “This collaboration with Jazwares to introduce Pokémon in the immensely popular Squishmallows expression is a perfect fit for fans of both brands. We can’t wait to see reactions at Comic-Con International in San Diego and the upcoming launch on PokemonCenter.com.”

 

As mentioned, the Pikachu and Gengar plushies will be on sale this autumn via the Pokémon Center, though SDCC attendees can check them out right now at Jazwares Booth #3513. There’s also a rumor (emphasis on the “rumor”) that Togepi and Snorlax will also be getting the Squishmallow treatment as Target exclusives in the future. We have nothing concrete at the moment, but that’s something to keep in mind as fall approaches. Good luck getting your hands on a Squishie, Trainers!
