Continuing the recent trend of Pokémon plush mega releases, a new wave of toys featuring every starter Pokémon in the series is about to be released in Japan.

Recently, we've seen every generation one Pokémon be included in a line of miniature plushes - although only the first 30 have released so far - and then some new additions to the Pocket Monsters All Star Collection, giving fans almost too many options to choose from. This new set of starters will join all of these lovely items, adding to the growing concerns faced from wallets around the world.

The new starter dolls will launch on 25th August at Pokémon Center locations dotted around Japan, and some will also be available from Amazon Japan with easy international shipping options. Each Pokémon will be available for 1,500 yen before shipping (approx. £10.60 / $13.50) and we've included a handy list of each set to be available below.

  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Chikorita 
  • Cyndaquil 
  • Totodoile
  • Treecko
  • Torchic
  • Mudkip
  • Turtwig
  • Chimchar
  • Piplup
  • Snivy
  • Tepig
  • Oshawott
  • Chespin
  • Fennekin
  • Froakie
  • Rowlet
  • Litten
  • Popplio

If you're wanting to grab one yourself, make sure to keep an eye out on Amazon Japan nearer the time of release. The Pokémon products usually appear on the store several days before they become officially available.

A new 'water globe' has also been released to celebrate the Pokémon Center's 20th Anniversary, also featuring various starter Pokémon, although this can only be purchased from inside Japan. This one costs considerably more, however, costing a whopping 21,600 yen (approx. £153 / $195).
