The Pokemon Company will release plush toys of Miraidon and Koraidon from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. They’ll be available in physical Pokemon stores in Japan from May 20, 2023. However, if you plan to buy them online, then you can start purchasing them from May 18, 2023. They cost 5500 JPY (~$41) each. While they aren’t available worldwide yet, Pokemon Center plush due tend to appear in the online storefronts after a time.
Both of them are in their Ride forms, which is the appearance they take for the majority of a player’s time in Paldea. Unlike most Legendary Pokemon in the long-running series, Koraidon and Miraidon are allies of the player trainer from the start, serving a fast and convenient way to travel around the map. Koraidon moves around on four legs, whereas Miraidon is closer to a motorbike.
Koraidon and Miraidon, who essentially look like giant big lizards, may not resemble a typically “cute” Pokemon. However, The Pokemon Company has been releasing quite a few toys of its more non-standard critters. For example, Armarouge and Ceruledge were the poster Pokemon for their own collection of Pokemon Kids snacks back in March 2023. This line also included conventionally cute Pokemon such as Fidough and Jigglypuff.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are available on the Nintendo Switch. The Miraidon and Koraidon Pokemon plushes will be available online from May 18, 2023 in Japan. They’ll be in stores from May 20, 2023.
