Disclaimer: I cannot guarantee which prize(s) you will get as kuji pulls are completely random (this is a lottery system). You may receive all lower level prices, all higher level prizes, or a mix of both…as well as duplicates. This is the risk all players take 🙂 For items where there are multiple choices, I will be emailing you a list of the different prizes and you can rank the options.

Please note: In the rare instance where the items are sold out, refunds will be issued. I will be going on release day but it depends on how many sets the store carries and how popular the kuji is.

If you have any questions, please let me know 🙂 Contact me if interested!

New Pokemon Center Skytree Grand Opening

This past Wednesday was the grand opening of the new Pokemon Center in Skytree Town in Tokyo! The mascot for this Pokemon Center is Rayquaza, so expect to see Rayquaza everywhere as well as some new merchandaise featuring Rayquaza! As with any grand opening in Japan, it was definitely quite hectic but fun 🙂 The Pikachu/Rayquaza merchandise is available for pickup at JapanStuffs.com. Unfortunately, I don’t visit the Skytree enough to offer pickups for the Skytree merchandise 🙁

Onto opening day…I got to the Pokemon Center around 10:30 AM, I accidentally overslept since I returned late the night before from Korea ^^; After about a 2.5 hour wait time, I finally made it in.

pokemoncenterskytree2

The first thing you see when entering is Pikachu riding on Rayquaza! How cute is that? After saying Hello to Pikachu, it’s time to check out all of the near merchandise, some of it is Skytree exclusive 🙂

pokemoncenterskytree3

Oh I did forget to mention that Pikachu in both his Rayquaza and Shiny Rayquaza hoodie made a guest appearance at the grand opening.

pokemoncenterskytree4

pokemoncenterskytree5

What’s a Skytree store without Skytree merchandise? The new Skytree plush features Pikachu hugging the Skytree. If you ever have the chance to visit Tokyo, I recommend going up to the observatory at the top of the Skytree. While it’s not as iconic as Tokyo Tower, it’s taller and much more innovative inside.

Next are the new Pikachu in Rayquaza poncho plushes! These are also available in mascot versions.

I really like the print on these handkerchiefs, it’s so cute :3

The new TCG box set was a big hit.

Featuring: Pikachu/Rayquaza plushes and mascot plushes, drawstring bag, and handkerchief

And of course, as you leave…Shiny Rayquaza is there to say good bye 🙂
