Pokemon Wailord

Pokemon Wailord Plush is 4 feet, 9 Inches Long

Among Pokemon, Wailord is among the largest. According to its Pokedex entry, it measures nearly 14.5 meters (47 feet) in length, larger than even real-life blue whales. Unlike with the life-size Lucario, though, The Pokemon Company, has opted for a more manageable scale for its Pokemon Wailord plush toy.

The Pokemon Wailord plush is, sizing aside, a rendition of the massive cetacean Pokemon. It appears much as it did in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire on the Game Boy Advance. The Wailord plush measures at 1/10th scale of the real one, making it roughly 1.45 meters in length (about 4 feet and 9 inches). It weighs 6.5 kilograms (about 14 lbs).

The Pokemon Wailord plush is available from the Pokemon Center online store in Japan. Pre-orders are open through March 13, 2023, and orders will ship out in August 2023. The plush will cost 49,500 Yen to purchase (about $367 USD).

The official Pokemon account also tweeted some pictures of the Wailord plush in everyday situations, to help fans imagine themselves possessing their own.

Wailord is one of the largest Pokemon in the franchise. Known as “Whaloh” in Japanese, it evolves from the Wailmer, which is much smaller at about 2 meters (6 feet) tall. Much like a real-life whale, it eats food while swimming, and is able to leap out of the water to make tremendous splashes. On a single breath, it can dive close to 10,000 feet (about 3 kilometers).

The Wailord Plush is available for pre-order until March 13, 2023 in Japan. Wailord itself appeared in Pokemon games Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, as well as their 3DS-based remakes, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
