They come in coloured transparent capsules so you can see which one you got without opening it.

Pixel Pikachu

The pouch is a nice size of 18x15cm. It is yellow, with a raster, and has a Pixel Pikachu on it. It appears to be the overworld sprite from Heart Gold and Soul Silver. It is facing us. Underneath it is a yellow Pokéball and reads in a pixel font Pokémon Center.

The back is fairly similar, except it shows the Pixel Pikachu facing away from us now. At the top is a black zipper. The branding is on a tush tag on the inside of the bag and is a standard Pokémon Center one.

I like practical merchandise, and baskets, pouches and totes I can never get enough of. So when I saw these on a game market stall I decided to buy one.
I went for the Pixel Pikachu as I love the pixel games.

The pouch is bigger than I thought it would be, and better quality than I was expecting too. The sprite is very cute, although the bag is bright yellow. They no longer had the sleeping Pikachu and I’m not a fan of the other designs.

I figured it was good to try once, as I see gashapon pouches often but never sure on their quality. I’m now more willing to take a chance on them.

If you like Pokémon or practical merchandise, these are surprisingly nice and big.
If you like more figures or plush, you might want to pass.

Got any more details / information you think I should add? Or did I get something wrong? Do you own any of these pouches? Which one is your fav? Do you agree or disagree with my findings? Let me know in the comments below!
