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.
