The Pokemon Company has quietly released new designs of their Pilot Pikachu and Air Stewardess Pikachu plushies and mascots on June 13, 2020.
The new design plushies and mascots were first spotted at Pokemon Store Itami Airport. It seems that the new designs are currently only available at the Itami Airport location, and we could probably expect them to be released at other Pokemon Store airport locations in Japan and Pokemon Center Singapore in the future.
