Premium Bandai announced a giant plush of the Pokemon Snorlax that also serves as a cushion. The cushion costs 72,000 JPY (roughly $542 USD). The giant Snorlax cushion comes with a Poke Flute. Unfortunately, playing the Poke Flute won’t make the Snorlax cushion come to life and wake up. It is planned to release in Japan in mid-July 2023. Pre-orders are now open from the Japanese Premium Bandai online store. [Thanks, Inside!]
The official name for this new Pokemon merchandise is “Definitely want to wake up – Snorlax cushion.” The Snorlax cushion is about 150 cm or 5 foot tall. You can take a better look at the Snorlax cushion that also serves as a giant plush, alongside the accompanying Poke Flute, in the gallery below.
This new Snorlax cushion is inspired by the sleepy and immovable Snorlax from the original Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue games. The player had to obtain and play the Poke Flute, a key item and musical instrument that only Pokemon can hear. The item would allow for the Snorlax blocking the road to wake up and move, so the player could continue their adventure.
Incidentally, in 2016 Premium Bandai released a different giant Snorlax cushion/plush under the name of “I definitelly don’t want to wake up – Snorlax cushion.”
In other Pokemon merchandise news, the Pokemon Center online store is now offering new sets of socks based on the starter Pokemon of the Paldea Region.
The giant “Definitely want to wake up” Snorlax cushion costs 72,000 JPY (~$542 USD,) and its planned Japanese release date is mid July 2023. Pre-orders are now open from the Japanese Premium Bandai online store.
