The Pokémon Company International has revealed the special Pikachu plush for the 2023 Pokémon World Championships, which will be hosted in Japan for the first time ever this week.

Those competing at the event will receive the cuddly electric mouse, with its ramen-guzzling design based on this year’s celebratory Yokohama artwork, and it will also be available to purchase at the “largest Pokémon Center Worlds store ever” on-site.

Competitors will also receive a special Pokémon Trading Card Game promo card, which, breaking the event’s trend, is the stadium card Paradise Resort. When used, it reduces the Retreat Cost of each Psyduck in play by one Energy.

The 2023 Pokémon World Championships will take place at the PACIFICO Yokohama, and is to be held from Friday 11 – Sunday 13 August 2023.
