Build-A-Bear Growlithe

Build-A-Bear is back with its latest Pokemon plushie, this time for Growlithe.

Fans can make a purchase online now. The Fire-type Pokemon, which has appeared since the first generation of games, has orange and black striped fur, a bushy tail, and fuzzy tufts of fur on its chest and head. It comes with an orange cape, PJ sleeper, and 5-in-1 sound chip.

Pokemon Day happened this week, and alongside that a new Pokemon Presents presentation was delivered. It contained a few announcements and a bunch of news about the franchise as a whole.

Probably the biggest reveal – which has been expected – is that Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet are getting new DLC. We don’t actually know too much currently, but it’ll be split into two parts. New Pokemon and a ton of returning creatures are coming. The first part has players going on a fieldtrip to Kitakami while the second features an adventure at Blueberry Academy as an exchange student.

The February 2023 Pokemon Presents did have other news as well, such as the return of Pokemon Sleep, Pokemon Concierge show from Netflix, and more. You can read the full recap here.

Detective Pikachu 2 not cancelled

If a brief statement from Legendary Entertainment is to be believed, the Detective Pikachu 2 movie hasn’t been cancelled and is still on the way. A representative told Polygon that it’s still “in active development.” However, The Pokemon Company did not indicate who is currently working on the project when asked for a comment.

Detective Pikachu 2 was originally announced in 2019, even before the release of the first one. Oren Uziel, who wrote 22 Jump Street and a draft of Sonic the Hedgehog, also wrote an outline and screenplay for this film but representatives say he’s no longer involved. Benji Samit and Dan Hernandez, writers for the original Detective Pikachu, have also suggested they’re not on it.

Ash Ketchup champion Masters Eight Tournament

The Pokemon anime isn’t something we discuss here too often, but we’re making an exception due to a significant event in the series: Ash Ketchum is the official champion and has become the top Trainer in the Pokemon world after winning the Masters Eight Tournament of the Pokemon World Coronation Series. This just happened in the latest episode of Pokemon Ultimate Journeys: The Series, which premiered today in Japan and will air worldwide in the future. The win is significant since it’s a culmination of Ash’s adventures in the Pokemon world spanning 25 years.

Over the course of Ash’s journey which started in the Kanto region, Ash and his Pikachu have battled numerous rivals. They’ve participated in tournaments before, but they’ve come short of a tournament victory. Ash Ketchum now secured the title of the first-ever Pokemon League Champion at the Manalo Conference in the Alola region.
