New Pikachu Holiday Squishmallow Wears a Santa Hat

A Pikachu Squishmallow holiday variant is on the way, with the character wearing a Santa hat to get in the Christmas spirit. While the toy didn’t show up at the Pokemon Center first, as what happened with the original version and Gengar one, pre-orders did already open up at Target. It is $24.99 and will apparently begin shipping on November 5, 2023. [Thanks, Wario64!]

The Pikachu Squishmallow holiday variant seems to be practically identical to the original model, save for the Santa hat. It will stand at 14” tall. Also, since this is a widely available model and not a Pokemon Center early release, there is no patch on its back to note the limited availability. This would mark the third variant in the line, as a Winking Pikachu will appear alongside Piplup in 2023.

Here’s a closer look at this version of Pikachu:

This means there are now seven confirmed characters in this Pokemon Squishmallow lineup. First, Pikachu and Gengar ones appeared. Those were followed by Snorlax and Togepi variants. The next two will be Piplup and Winking Pikachu.

The holiday Pikachu Squishmallow will appear ahead of Christmas 2023, with the Target pre-order page suggesting it will begin showing up in stores on November 5, 2023.
