Pikachu Plushie Wedding

The Pokemon Center in Japan will begin selling wedding-themed Pikachu plushies and other merchandise later this month. The “Pokemon Garden Wedding” series of merchandise will be available online starting May 12, 2022, at 10 AM JST/3 AM CEST. It will appear in physical Pokemon Center stores in Japan starting May 14, 2022. Prices for plushies will start at ¥3,300 (about $25). [Thanks, Game Watch!]

The Pikachu plushies will come in two varieties, both dressed in traditional wedding attire. The western-style wedding attire will feature Pikachu in a white bride’s dress and groom’s suit. The groom will wear a corsage, and the bride will hold a bouquet of white flowers. On the other hand, the Japanese-style wedding attire will feature the bride in a traditional shiromuku, while the groom will wear a montsuki haori hakama. All of the plushies will cost ¥3,300 except for the western-style bride Pikachu, which will cost ¥3,850 (about $28).

Additionally, the merchandise line will include themed acrylic stands, a wedding dropbox, DIY name stands, a pair of glass cups, and more. Essentially, the Pokemon Garden Wedding series includes everything you would need to host your own wedding. The pair of glass cups will come with a wooden box featuring a similar garden wedding design.
