The Pokémon × Squishmallows Collection contains Squishmallow versions of characters from the Pokémon franchise.

Initial Announcement[]

The collection was first announced on social media on July 20, 2022.[1] The announcement didn't outright confirm any characters, but it did include a video featuring the obvious silhouette of a Pikachu Squishmallow. And just hours after the initial announcement, Pikachu and Gengar were shown-off on display at the Jazwares booth at San Diego Comic Con. During this time, it was confirmed that the collection would be launching online at the Pokémon Center later that fall, with a release in-stores at select retailers to follow.

Wave 1[]

The first wave of the collection launched on the Pokémon Center website on November 22, 2022.[2] This initial launch only included Pikachu and Gengar (both in size 12"), with a promise that more designs would be coming sometime in 2023.

Pikachu and Gengar would begin officially releasing in-stores at various retailers starting in late January/early February 2023. The in-store releases are available in sizes 10", 14", and 20" and do not have the special Pokémon Center patch stitched onto their backsides.

Wave 2[]

Wave 2 was officially announced on February 20, 2023, featuring two new Squishmallows of the Pokémon Togepi and Snorlax.[3] This wave would first release on March 20, 2023, exclusively on the Pokémon Center UK website (in size 12"). An equivalent release would occur on the US and Canadian versions of the site over a month later, on the morning of April 27, 2023.

Following the initial UK release, both Snorlax and Togepi would begin releasing sporadically in-store at various retailers. The in-store releases are available in sizes 10", 14", and 20", and do not have the special Pokémon Center patch stitched onto their backsides.

Wave 3[]

Wave 3 was officially announced on May 30, 2023, featuring two new Squishmallows of the Pokémon Piplup and Pikachu (in a winking pose).[4]

On August 2, Piplup and Winking Pikachu were made available for preorder on Pokémon Center and are available in size 12".[5] They were later made available at stores such as Walmart and Walgreens with a new additional size of 14" and 20" in late August.


Wave 4[]

On August 31, 2023, Wave 4 was teased including new Squishmallows of Teddiursa and Clefairy. They are currently up for preorder on Pokémon Center's website (in size 12") . [6]

Wave 5[]

On January 28, 2024 Wave 5 was leaked which will include the new Squishmallows of Marill and Dragonite (in size 10", 14", and 20").
