The Pokemon Company has officially confirmed today the release date for Pokemon Center’s highly anticipated Villain Boss Pikachu merchandise. The lineup of products will be released on January 20.

Here’s a look at the products, most of which we have never seen before.
First and foremost are the Villain Boss Pikachu plushies.
Releasing alongside them are Legendary Pokemon that Team Rainbow Rocket wishes to capture.
Exclusive to Pokemon Centers and Stores in Japan are these mini figurines, which can only be obtained via capsule machines.
