This plush will come in two different varieties, which each featuring a unique expression. The Captain Pikachu plush will be released at Japanese retailers come December 26th, 2023.
There’s no word on this plush seeing release outside of Japan at this time, but that’s likely because Pokémon Horizons: The Series hasn’t made its debut in North America quite yet. Once the series gets going, there’s no doubt going to be a wall of merch to welcome it.
