Entry 21:40pm - 29/05/2016. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)


This week saw the release of the new Psyduck plush, however it didn't make the top sellers list on the online Japanese Center website (It was third in the plush best sellers list, however.) Instead, the dominance of the metal charms continues with a cheap 154円 RRP resulting in a surge in popularity. Since last week Sylveon became sold out, the latest charms to make the list have been Mew and Jirachi as well as the Eeveelutions maintaining high popularity as the set continues to make the top sellers list. The set of charms are sold at 1,029円 and make a leap from 3rd to 2nd in the best sellers list. The key chains of Substitute slip into third but are still strong sellers in a very interesting list which looks to keep its trend, as little releases are due for the next two weeks.

Name: Litten

Category: Fire Cat Pokémon

Height: 1 '04 "

Weight: 9.5 lbs.

Type: Fire

Starting Move: Ember


The cool-headed Fire Cat Pokémon, Litten, is the next choice for a first-partner Pokémon. Litten’s fur is rich in oils and is immensely flammable. It constantly grooms itself by licking its coat, collecting loose fur into balls. It then ignites these hairballs to create fireball attacks. When the time comes for Litten to molt, it burns off all of its fur in one glorious blaze.


Name: Popplio

Category: Sea Lion Pokémon

Height: 1 '04 "

Weight: 16.5 lbs.

Type: Water

Starting Move: Water Gun


The third possibility is the acrobatic Sea Lion Pokémon, Popplio. Popplio can create balloons made of water from its nose and utilize them to create a variety of different strategies and attacks in battle. This Pokémon is better at moving in the water than on land, and can swim at speeds over 25 mph. On land, it uses the elasticity of the balloons it creates to perform jumps and acrobatic stunts.


09/05 note : New information for Pokémon Sun and Moon is to be revealed, and it has been teased by Junichi Masuda on his (Personal blog), that a trailer is set to feature on the official Pokémon YouTube channel, for Japan. It is most likely that the international account on YouTube will also feature the new trailer, showcasing the information that will be released. At this point it is difficult to say what will emerge, however, last months CoroCoro teaser almost guarantees that box art will be revealed for the new games.

Sunday Supplement Pokémon Center Weekend news report - 08/05/2016

Entry 21:10pm - 08/05/2016. (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)


Another week of sales has been totalled, and still unmoved at the top is the Eevee campaign t-shirts, making it three weeks running since its re-release in Japan. The t-shirts feature each Eeveelution and is a blind-secret packaged shirt, so you never what which Eeveelution you might get. Secondly, for the second consecutive week, sees the blind-packaged tin Dot series keep its place on the list, which features each pictured tin in picture two, but also has Mew as a secret tin.


Following the Saturday release of the new Ditto Campaign series number two, the Gengar and Eevee editions have made the list of best sellers, removing the popularity of the Ho-oh and Lugia Kyoto Pikachu crossover plush, just after one week of release. Unsurprisingly, Gengar has been best seller out of the series which also featured Poliwag, Jolteon, Flareon, Vaporeon as part of the Ditto Transform plush series number two. We do expect these plush to maintain the popularity for some time, and may even gain higher sales by next week. (Preorder any merchandise Worldwide at Sunyshore).


Stay tuned for next weeks best seller information!

Sunday Supplement Pokémon Center Weekend news report/Darkrai merchandise to be released - 01/05/2016

Entry 00:10am - 01/05/2016. Edit 08:52am (Don't forget to visit our Facebook page for news updates and more.)


Following our beginning of the sales count for merchandise in Japan last week, little changes have been made in terms of the best sellers list for the Online Center. Still on top of the best sellers list remains the Eevee blind packaged t-shirts from last years Pokemon Time merchandise range, where each Eeveelution and Eevee were sold at Centers. In second place sees the newly added Dot Series secret tins which come in blind-packages also, which the mystery Pokemon inside. The tins feature Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Eevee, Lapras, Gengar, Ditto, Poliwhirl, Magnemite, Jigglypuff, Oddish, Pokeball assortments, and the secret rare Mew can.


Lugia and Ho-oh Pikachu Kyoto plush still make the top four list but move below the cans, and Lugia still remains to outsell the Ho-oh crossover. What is incredibly interesting about this is the recent additions of Dolce key chains of Jigglypuff, Sylveon or Male/Female Pikachu didn't make the list, ensuring that the Kyoto plush still hold a high level of popularity, in Japan at least. In next weeks supplement however, we do expect the Ditto transform campaign number two to absolutely crash this list. However, we can only wait and see. (Preorder any merchandise Worldwide at Sunyshore).


Stay tuned for next weeks best seller information!
