As the mascot of the Pokemon franchise, Pikachu no doubt has the most amount of merchandise of any Pokemon, especially plushies. Even with all the Pikachu merch available right now, there’s nothing quite like this!
The Pokemon Center in Japan recently revealed a Pikachu plushie based on its Gigantamax form which was introduced in Pokemon Sword & Shield. Much like its video game counterpart, this Gigantamax Pikachu plushie is massive!
While it may not seem that big in photos, make no mistake, this is a big plush toy. In fact, it has a height of 80 centimeters (2 feet and 7.5 inches) with a weight of 4.5 kilograms (around 10 pounds).
Given its size, it’s no surprise that this plushie is quite expensive. The Gigantamax Pikachu plush toy is priced at JPY 44,000 (around PHP 20,580)!
Aside from Pikachu, there’s also a plush version of Meowth’s Gigantamax. This Meowth plushie is even taller than the Pikachu one at 165 centimeters (5 feet, 5 inches)! Though it’s not as heavy, with a weight of 3.29 kilograms (7.24 pounds).
Even if it’s not as heavy, it’s price tag is still steep. The Meowth Gigantamax Plushie is priced at JPY 33,000 (around PHP 15,400).
Want a Gigantamax Pikachu or Meowth plushie of your own? Both plush toys are now up for pre-order at the Pokemon Center Online store, and they’ll release in Japan on October 2020.
