Three New Galar Region Pokémon Plushes Will be Available Soon


The Pokemon Company will release plushes of three Galar region Pokémon next month. Chewtle, Sizzlipede, and Clobbopus will appear in brick-and-mortar stores on May 1, whereas they will be available in online stores from April 28, 2021.

Each Pokémon plush is 1815 JPY (around $16.69 USD). The plushes all have their own charm points, similar to the Pokémon that inspired them. For example, the Chewtle plush perfectly replicates the Pokémon’s ever-present grumpy expression. As well, though Sizzlipede in the game is quite flat, the Sizzlipede plush is a lot more robust in size. The Clobbopus’s big boxing gloves are held up in the air, though whether it’s an intimidation tactic or an invitation for a friendly hug is open for interpretation.

These are not the only plushes from Pokémon Sword and Shield. Earlier this month, The Pokémon Company released a series of Pokémon Dolls that draw inspiration from the four Galarian fossil Pokémon. Other Galar region Pokémon plushes include a Toxel from the Comfy Friends series, a big fat Wooloo, and a large sword-wielding Zacian.

The three Galarian Pokémon plushes will appear in brick-and-mortar stores in Japan on May 1 and online on April 28, 2021. There’s no worldwide release date for them yet. Pokemon Sword and Shield are available on the Nintendo Switch.
