Pokémon Palette Color Collection is a series of Gashapon sets of small Pokémon figures with paint tubes and brushes on a coloured base. Each volume focuses on a specific colour, with Pokémon and paint of that colour. They came out of a Gashapon machine in a capsule. Each volume exists out of 5 figures.
The series comes in several volumes / colours and is still ongoing.
The figures come in 3 parts in plastic; the base, the peg and the figure.
The branding is on the bottom of the figure. It reads in raised font: ©Pokémon/Nintendo KC CH.

I got 1/5; Psyduck.
Psyduck, the yellow duck Pokémon, has fallen over a yellow tube of paint. His weight is causing the paint to spill out the paint tube.

I love Gashapon, Pokémon and I’m an artist. These were made for me! The first volume, the pink series, was very quickly sold out, and the ones for sale seem quite expensive. I wasn’t that fussed at the time. It was just pink. But now that more colours are announced I’m hoping to get at least one of each!
However, I am quite picky with these. I only like the Pokémon of Gen 1, maybe Gen 2. And I like to display these without their bases, and I don’t think that works for all of them as some I don’t think can stand on their own.
I found the yellow series from an anime shop on Instagram for a nice price, and I knew I wanted 1. Psyduck seemed the one to tick all my boxes, so I bought him.
He looks so dorky and cute! The colours are nicely done, and the paint looks lifelike.
I do hope to score Growlithe of the orange series! He’s one of my favourite Pokémon but I don’t like much merchandise of him. This one would be perfect. As for the others, I think any of pink but Mew would be good. Grimer of purple, although Gengar looks cuter. He might be able to sit lopsided. And then Squirtle or Tangela of blue. Bulbasaur will have to be green.
I’m guessing a red will come next? Or maybe black and white? I do hope they make all the colours.
If I get any more this will be updated of course.
If you like Gashapon, or small, cute little figures of Pokémon, or love paint / art, this set is highly recommended!
If you prefer larger figures, these would be a miss for you.
Got any more details / information? Did I get something wrong? Do you own the same figure or the full sets? Which colours are you hoping for next? Let me know in the comments below!
