Pokemon Squishmallows Are Coming Back

The “Squishmallows,” plush toys that look like a fusion of pillows and stuffed animals, were one of the most popular examples of Pokemon merchandise that debuted last year. With the release of the anime/gaming franchise’s Pikachu and Gengar last November, the Squishmallows themselves quickly sold out around the world, leaving many people unable to find them during the holiday season. Fortunately, the creators have announced an upcoming restock, so fans should be able to get their hands on the Pokemon pillows soon.

The Pokemon Squishmallows will be available again in stores in February, according to a representative, who also stated that the items were not recalled, as many fans initially believed due to online speculation:

“Squishmallows x Pokémon are not being recalled; they were simply set too soon. Fans can expect them to be available for purchase soon. This happens occasionally: stock is placed on the floor too soon and systems have not yet caught up.”

Godzilla and his fellow kaiju received their own Squishmallows, giving the king of the monsters and his titanic brethren a brand new spin.

It should come as no surprise that Pikachu was one of the two pocket monsters given their own Squishmallow, with the yellow electric rodent long considered by fans to be the de facto mascot of the wildly popular franchise. Things are about to change in the anime adaptation, as Pikachu, along with Ash Ketchum, will be saying their final goodbyes as the series’ main characters.

Following a run of more than two decades as the most prominent Pokemon, it will be interesting to see how Pikachu will return in the anime adaptation’s future and whether new trainers, Liko or Roy, will add their own electric rodent to their rosters. With Pikachu’s impending departure, another major question arises: if the shocking mouse isn’t the star of the show, which pocket monster will take its place?
