Pokémon Sword and Shield (Switch) comes out on November 15th worldwide.

A Day with Pikachu

The Pokémon Company have revealed the latest A Day with Pikachu figure, which comes out later this month (exclusively via the Pokémon Center Online website). It’s called A Cool New Friend, and here’s some details and pictures for it:

It features Pikachu decked out in a festive Delibird cap while taking a romp in the snow on a cold winter day. But what’s this? The little Pokémon has encountered a small, powdery doppelgänger! From the look on Pikachu’s face, however, it seems a bit skeptical as to this snowman’s true identity. That snowy smile is a bit wide, and those eyes are a bit beady. Hmm…we wonder… Seriously, though, how cute is Pikachu’s incredulous smirk here? This charming figure will make a cool-as-ice addition to your Pokémon collection.
