My Other PokePlush
When it comes to plush other then Pokedolls, I can be very picky. Most of these plush from Gen 3 and earlier are from my childhood. Any others after that are ones that I got recently. I tend to pick plush of Pokemon that I love, trained in my game, or I just like the plush's design/detail. Well let's take a peek at my tiny collection of other plush!
This popular line is from the Pokemon Center stores in Japan. Their plush is high in quality and very detailed, and seem to stay true to the Pokemon's design. They also host a number of promotions which explains the varied pokeplush you'll see in this gallery.
Pokemon Center Pikachu
Just many variants of Pikachu's released by the Pokemon Center. Since I have too many of them, they now have their own section. They are organized by year of release.
Inspired by the popular Tsum Tsum line from Disney, these pokemon are stackable and made by the Pokemon Center. They're in the laying down position and have to variations of one pokemon; asleep and awake. I don't plan on heavily collecting this line, so I'm picking and choosing my faves. I prefer the awake variant.
Pokemon Little Tales
This mini line is centered around Pikachu in a Winnie the Pooh style. Created by designer Shinzi Katohand released in Pokemon Center stores in Japan.
These hard-to-find plushies are exclusive to the Pokemon Center in Japan. They're made of a super soft and cuddly material.
Secret Base Pokedolls
This is a new line by the Pokemon Center, based on the pokedolls from OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire. These pokedolls are twice the size of the original pokedoll line. We don't know if they are to replace the pokedoll line entirely or are a spin off.
This line is from the Pokemon Center in Japan. The plush is designed to have pastel colors to make it look like it was drawn on a canvas. The plush line is smaller then a pokedoll, but its quality is still high, as they pay attention to detail.
The most common plush line out there. They're mainly found in UFO catchers in Japan as prizes. They're not too high in quality, though the only exclusion is the 'I Love Eevee' promotion.
According to recent news, this company has obtained the license to Pokemon merchandise internationally.
This little mini plush line was made by TOMY. Kuta Kutas are known to only have Generation 1 and 2 Pokemon in it. They are tiny floppy bean bag like Pokemon plush in a laying down position, made of terrycloth and filled with plastic pellets.
My Pokemon Collection (MPC)
The plush from this line were all intended to be game prizes in UFOs. They are known for making (almost) every single Pokemon into plush form for Generation 5. They have also made some Gen 1 into plush, and they're currently releasing Gen 6.
Blast from the past! This was the main company responsible for the overwhelming amount of merchandise when Pokemon came out in America. They are categorized by year of release.
Very commonly found throughout the United States. Their plush is rather questionable in quality, since they can be deformed and derpy looking at times. They are soft and made of minky. Since 2013, this company has ceased distribution for Pokemon. It is continued by Takara Tomy.
Hong Kong KFC Evolving Pokemon
Not much is known about these evolving plush, other that they were toys given away in China from KFC in the generation 1 craze. Only 4 pokemon were made in this set. Pikachu/Raichu is often bootlegged.
Commonly found in most places, though I haven't seen any Gen 6 Pokemon made into reversible plush. In America, this line was released by Hasbro, but in Japan it was released by Tomy. The plush are tiny, and they have a zipper which you can turn them inside out to either be a Pokeball (or a Masterball) or the Pokemon that they are supposed to be.
I don't have much of these nor do I plan to collect them. They come from Japan and they come in a box. Pikachu is missing his mouth.
This line of Pokemon plush is mostly found in carnivals and theme parks as game prizes. Because of their low quality, they are not considered to be valuable.
Play By Play
These plush were released in the Generation 1 craze, though some of their plush can be odd looking.
These were some of the first pokemon plush to be released in America. These beanie baby like plush were part of a KFC promotion for $4.99 back in the early 90's. Only 4 pokemon were made: Vulpix, Zubat, Seel, and Dratini.
These plush mainly consists of ones from restaurants McDonalds, Burger King, Bandai, Tri-Star, TY, unknown origins, or from a company that does not have its own section because I only have one of it. They are organized by year of release.
Plush of unknown origins. It's best to read this article about them!
Custom Pokemon plush that I have got. I didn't make these, unless specified.
I don't have much of these plush, though the Tomy Glaceon and Leafeon are questionable bootlegs. Laugh at their deformities!
