The Pokémon Company have shared a special web cartoon called Pokétoon: Zuruggu & Mimikkyu. It’s a comedy cartoon in the vein of old school american cartoons, featuring Scraggy and Mimikkyu.

Here’s pictures of a giant Psyduck plushie (80cm), now available for pre-order in Japan (price: 30 800 Yen):

This giant Psyduck plushie will be released in September (pre-orders are open until July 5th).

Also, starting today, Polo Shirts are now available via the Pokémon Shirts service. Here’s some pictures and some details:

Pokémon Polo Shirts are available now and feature multiple customization options to truly create a unique one of a kind polo shirt. These include adding up to three of 151 Pokémon embroideries from the Kanto region. Poké Ball designed buttons or even pairing a patterned pocket from the Pokémon Shirts’original 151 fabrics. Now you can have your favourite Pokémon tag along with you in a casual but classy style!

Start by choosing one of the 151 original Pokémon embroideries from 151 different Pokémon, originally discovered in the Kanto region. You can apply up to three embroideries on your custom Pokémon Polo Shirt. These can be applied on your left chest, the front bottom-right of your polo shirt, as well as on the back bottom-left of the polo. Grab some attention by placing your favourite Pokémon on the left chest to stand out, or place it on the front or back lower corner for a more casual look.

If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, change up the buttons from plain to one of three different types of Poké Ball designs (Poké Ball, Great Ball, or Ultra Ball). Feeling like you want a bit more, choose “mixed” and get one of each on your Pokémon Polo Shirt.

Other custom options include changing the pocket to one of the 151 Pokémon shirt fabrics from the Kanto collection. If the pocket is customized, the same fabric from the pocket will be applied to the back of the neck inside the collar underneath the tag. If a Pokémon patterned fabric is used for the pocket, you will not be able to add an embroidery over the patterned pocket. You will, however, be able to add an embroidery to the front bottom-right or the back bottom-left.

You can choose from a total of three different collar types. The standard rib collar recommended for everyday use or the semi-formal collar and semi-formal button-down collar, allowing for a more formal feel on your polo shirt. Pokémon Polo Shirts are designed to worn casually and also in a business setting.
