Munchlax Build A Bear

It’s that time once again – Build-A-Bear is expanding its Pokemon line with another plushie, this time for Munchlax.

Munchlax can be found in stores and online. For those going the online route, there’s an exclusive bundle. Each order includes the main plushie with 5-in-1-sound, Heavy Ball hoodie, and Bib and Tamato Berry Wristie. 

Best Shiny Pokemon

We’ve compiled a list outlining ten of the best Shiny Pokemon of all time. Before we begin, do keep in mind that this isn’t an objective list. There are far more than ten out there there, so we won’t be able to cover all of the great shinies on this list alone.

Shiny Pokemon were first introduced in Pokemon Gold and Silver, and since then they’ve been sort of hit-or-miss. For every great-looking Shiny coloration, there’s another one out there that’s incredibly disappointing (we’re looking at you, Ceruledge). That being said, there are plenty of Shiny Pokemon worth hunting – and that’s what we’re here for today.

As we start to wind down on the Switch era, an interesting tidbit has come to light regarding the mainline Pokemon games. Nintendo’s latest console is where the franchise has achieved the most success and highest sales.

Pokemon games have managed to sell over 96 million copies on Switch. Pokemon Sword and Shield are the current best-sellers at 26.27 million. However, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are right behind at 24.92 million. And speaking of Scarlet and Violet, they’re the fastest selling entry in the series and the third best-selling title overall.

Mythical Pokemon

One of the most common criticisms of modern Pokemon is its handling of Mythical Pokemon. Though the recent Mochi Mayhem DLC in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is a welcome exception, several important Mythical Pokemon have drawn attention for their distinct lack of backstory. Otherwise well-designed creatures like Diancie, Volcanion, Zeraora, and Zarude are somewhat notorious for doing absolutely nothing in the games they were introduced in. Today, we’re going over all the interesting Mythical Pokemon events the games have had to offer and coming up with new ones for the Mythical Pokemon that didn’t receive one.

Shiny hunting is one of the best ways to squeeze additional hours out of Pokemon games. Almost every single Pokemon is obtainable in its Shiny form in one way or another. That being said, there are a handful of Pokemon – mostly of the Legendary and Mythical varieties – that are completely unavailable in this form without hacking. If you’re curious, we’ve compiled a list of every Shiny locked Pokemon in 2024.

The Build-A-Bear Pokemon line continues on, and it’s now been revealed that a new Bidoof plushie is happening.

Bidoof is a brown rodent-like Normal-type Pokemon which first debuted in the Generation IV titles, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. It has featured in a number of games throughout the series since its debut, and even starred in its own anime spinoff short, Bidoof’s Big Stand, in 2022.

Pokemon Works

The Pokemon Company has established a new Pokemon Works subsidiary, and fans are speculating about what it could mean for the future.

At least at the moment, there’s not much to go on. Pokemon Works is only known to be operating in Shinjuku, and is in the same building as Ilca. Ilca, of course, is behind the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Switch remakes, which launched in 2021.

Talking Pokemon

As many fans know, Meowth is the primary Pokemon that talks like a person in the anime. However, there was actually a time when the same thing was considered for other creatures.

The Pokemon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara spoke about this in a recent interview of Famitsu while discussing Detective Pikachu Returns. Here’s what was shared about that subject which we’ve translated:
