Jonesing for official Pokémon merchandise from the Pokémon Center but nowhere close to one? I feel your pain. That one trek to Manhattan wasn't enough for me. Luckily, The Pokémon Company plans to open up an official online store carrying a nice variety of Pokémon-themed merch on August 6.
Siliconera received a goodie bag full of some of what you can expect to find at the store, including a travel mug, a Pikachu iPhone case, notebook, and a plush Special Delivery Pikachu. How cute!
You can actually check out the store right now, though there are only three items up for grabs until the grand opening. I can't wait to see what's available.
