Pokémon merchandise

Here’s pictures of a clear file featuring a New Year’s illustration from Game Freak, now available in Pokémon Center stores across Japan:

And here’s pictures and details for the latest A Day with Pikachu figure, releasing later this month via the Pokémon Center Online website:

Pikachu is out for a walk through the snow in the latest figure in Funko’s A Day with Pikachu collection, Surprising Weather Ahead. And “surprising” is right—judging by the startled look on Pikachu’s face, it did not expect to run into another Pokémon during its stroll. How does that old saying go? If a Diglett sees its shadow, we’re in store for more chilly winter weather? It looks like Pikachu might want to bundle up the next time it steps outside, just in case. Even if you’re hoping for the arrival of warmer weather, seeing Pikachu’s comical expression is worth the extra bit of cold.
