0

Kawada will release Nanoblock toys of Sinnoh Pokemon from Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. They will come out on January 22, 2022. Each one will cost around 1045 JPY, which is around $9. The Pokemon that you will be able to buy Nanoblock kits of are Lucario, Garchomp, Glaceon, Leafeon, Piplup, Chimchar, and Turtwig. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]

To be more precise, only the starter Pokemon (Chimchar, Piplup, Turtwig) will cost 1045 JPY. The other four will cost 1210 JPY ($10.45) each. These Nanoblock Pokemon are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Because the beads are clear, you can shine a light through them to make them sparkle.

These seven Pokemon are some of the more iconic ones from Generation IV. Aside from the three starter Pokemon and the two new Eevee evolutions, Lucario is popular enough to appear in Super Smash Bros. and get its own movie. Meanwhile, Garchomp is a powerful Pokemon that many players use in the competitive scene.

Kawada first revealed this collection of Sinnoh Nanoblock Pokemon during the Brilliant Shining Festival in October 2021. Other merchandise that appeared during this event include a giant Garchomp plush, a Psyduck teapot, and various Pokemon-themed snacks. This collaboration was to commemorate the release of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, which launched less than a month after.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are readily available worldwide on the Nintendo Switch. The Sinnoh Nanoblock Pokemon toys will become available from January 22, 2022.
