Back in August, Bandai released a Pikachu and Eevee plushie set via their web shop. Well, it looks like Meowth will now be joining them.
This version of Meowth is also the standard one and not the Alolan variant seen in the recently released Pokémon Sun and Moon.
These plushies are also slightly different, as they are geared towards cushioning their owners during PC use. In that, not only do you get a nice Pokémon plushie to hug but also a themed arm rest for typing.
The use of plushies when on your PC is something that is quite popular in Japan and many popular characters end up getting this kind of treatment.
This particular Meowth plushie starts its pre-orders today for 5,616 yen. However, it won’t be released until the end of February next year.
The only real bad news in all this is that Bandai’s online web shop doesn’t ship outside of Japan, which is a shame.
That said, Bluefin Distribution handles these kinds of releases in the U.S. on behalf of Bandai, so we may see this Meowth plushie come Westward yet.
In the meantime, get playing Pokémon Sun and Moon on 3DS, as it really is excellent.
