A new Pokemon Sword and Shield Pokemon Center plush is going to be rather special. The official Japanese website has revealed the next wave of stuffed animals that will jopefully appear on April 11, 2020, and Cramorant will get not one, but two variants. This is because the character has both a standard and Gulp Missile form.
In Pokemon Sword and Shield, Cramorant is one of those special characters. If someone has it use either the Dive or Surf move, the character will return with another Pokemon it is attempting to eat in its mouth. This is normally an Arrokuda, another newly added creature, though sometimes it can be a Pikachu.
The Pokemon Center plush acknowledges that by offering two options to people. One has the Cramorant as normal. The other has his eye shut and mouth wide open with an Arrokuda inside as it attempts to eat it.
Cramorant isn’t the only Pokemon Center plush based on a Pokemon Sword and Shield character on the way. The line also includes Galarian Ponyta, Sinistea, and Sirfetch’d. Both Cramorants, Galarian Ponyta, and Sinistea will be ¥1,815 (~$16.49) each. Sirfetch’d will be ¥2,200 (~$19.99).
Pokemon Sword and Shield are available for the Nintendo Switch. While Cramorant, Galarian Ponyta, and these other Pokemon Center plushes will only be available in Japan initially, people can expect to eventually see them appear in the worldwide website as well. In addition, the official announcement did confirm the current pandemic situation could end up delaying the April 11, 2020 release date in Japan.
