Altaria is a Dragon/Flying type Pokemon that evolves from Swablu and debuted in the third-generation Game Boy Advance entries, Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. The Pokedex lists its height as 3’07″(1.1m). This plush will have roughly the same size with dimensions of 96 x 131 x 90 cm (~37.8 x 51.6 x 35.4 inches).

The Japanese Pokemon Center Online shop has been selling life-size plushes that stay true to the Pokemon’s descriptions in the Pokedex. Most of the popular unevolved starter Pokemon, including the series mascot Pikachu, have a height between 1-2 feet, and their plushes generally cost around 5,000 yen. Smaller Pokemon that are less than one foot tall, such as Voltik, Meltan, and Rotom, are priced even lower, at around 2,000 yen.

Another large life-size plush that the store had revealed before Altaria featured Spheal. The pre-evolved form of Sealeo and Walrein has a height of 2’07” (0.8m), and the life-size plush stays true to that size. The Japanese store lists the Spheal plush at 49,500 yen, but the US Pokemon Center store also sells the 39.5-inch plush at $449.99. Though the following items are no longer listed in the Japanese store, it also used to sell life-size plushes of Lucario and Slowpoke at similar prices.

Altaria and its pre-evolved Swablu are available in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the third-generation remakes on Nintendo 3DS, and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, the fourth-generation remakes on Nintendo Switch. Both Pokemon are also available in the eighth-generation mainline titles Pokemon Sword and Shield on the Switch via the Crown Tundra expansion.

Pre-orders for the life-size Altaria plush in Japan will close on November 7, 2022. The Pokemon Company will start shipping the finished plushes in mid-May 2023.
