The first two characters in this line were Pikachu and Gengar. They initially showed up in the Pokemon Center online storefront. Those versions of the toys are different from the ones in wider circulation, as they feature a special patch on the back noting where the person bought them. After launch, they eventually also showed up in stores like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walgreens, and Walmart.
The second two to join the collection were Snorlax and Togepi. Like Gengar and Pikachu, they first appeared in the Pokemon Center in April 2023. There have been reports of the two designs appearing in additional stores like Box Lunch and Target. However, they aren’t widespread releases yet.
The fifth and sixth Pokemon Squishmallow stuffed animals will be Piplup and winking Pikachu. Both are in development ahead of their widespread release
