Pikachu’s Easter Merchandise is Pastels-a-Plenty
Spring is in the air anime and games are coming ’round to celebrate Easter by embracing flower, egg, and rabbit motifs. This is especially true for Pokémon‘s one and only Pikachu who is adorning itself with a flower crown and posing with painted eggs for a line of merchandise.
“Pikachu’s Easter” goods will appear in Pokemon Center stores throughout Japan starting on March 18. The items range from sweets and dishware to fashion accessories, plushies, and stationary. The goods range in price from 210 yen for a clear file to 3,200 yen for a purse.
Some of the items will also launch on the Amazon Japan store starting on March 18.
Players can also visit Pokémon Centers from March 18 to April 9 to receive an in-game Pokémon Egg gift. The egg will randomly hatch into either Mareanie, Oranguru, Passimian, Turtonator, Drampa or Goomy. After the egg hatches, players can return to the Pokemon Center and show the hatched Pokémon to a staff member to receive an exclusive “Growing Guide.”
Starting on April 1, customers that buy five Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion packs will receive an additional card inside of egg-shaped packaging. There are four different cards, one depicting Maraeanie, Passimian, Turtonator, and Easter Pikachu. The card gifts will be handed out while supplies last.
