Pokemon...Pokémon 20th Anniversary Goodies Just Around the Corner IT'S PIKACHU!

While I advocate healthy living, gym training (contextually apt with this post yeah) and eating right. It's an awesome treat for long-time Pokemon fans with the release of a re-chubby-sized Pikachu plushy by Banpresto. This monster is 25 centimeters or roughly 9.8 inches tall. Now I've scoured the net looking for this limited edition collector's piece and only Play-Asia has this for pre-order for $20 a pop. I saw this listed on Amazon Japan a month ago, but it somehow got delisted.

Here's a seasonally appropriate version that was just released though:


20 years is a mighty long time and there's no doubt a generation was raised with Pokemon, especially the mid 90's kids and teenagers (which I'm a part of). I have to say this plumpy version of Pikachu is on the upper end in terms of quality. Pikachu seemed to have shredded and got lean muscle training with Ash through the years

Meanwhile, I came across this Kotaku Australia post of humongous Pokemon plushies

The Charmander (56 centimetres tall!) and Mega Charizard are amazing. Here are the details, please note that I am in no way affiliated with this artist:

Pokémon (ポケモン Pokemon?, /ˈpoʊkeɪmɒn/ POH-kay-mon)[1][2] is a media franchise owned by The Pokémon Company,[3] and created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995.[4] It is centered on fictional creatures called "Pokémon", which humans capture and train to fight each other for sport.

The franchise began as a pair of video games for the original Game Boy, developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo. The franchise now spans video games, trading card games, animated television shows and movies, comic books, and toys. Pokémon is the second-most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Nintendo's Mario franchise.[5]

The franchise celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2006.[6] Cumulative sales of the video games (including home console games, such as Hey You, Pikachu! for the Nintendo 64) have reached more than 200 million copies.[7] In November 2005, 4Kids Entertainment, which had managed the non-game related licensing of Pokémon, announced that it had agreed not to renew the Pokémon representation agreement. Pokémon USA Inc. (now The Pokémon Company International), a subsidiary of Japan's Pokémon Co., now oversees all Pokémon licensing outside of Asia.[8] As of 2013, the Pokémon media franchise has grossed revenues of ¥4 trillion worldwide[9] (equivalent to US$37.76 billion). The brand earned $2 billion in 2014 alone.[10]

For now and until 2016 hits, here's something also to look forward to.
