Pokémon Gallery Figures (PGF), a line of high-quality collectible Pokémon figurines, recently released their latest trio of such figures. On March 7, 2019, Alolan Vulpix, Sylveon, and Dragonite joined the ever-expanding roster.
What is unique to PGFs is that each figurine depicts the Pokémon doing an attack move. Blizzard for Alolan Vulpix, Fairy Wind for Sylveon, and Hyper Beam for Dragonite respectively.
Based in the United States by The Pokémon Company International, PGFs were initially made exclusively for the United States Pokémon Center Online, with some figures later being released to U.S. GameStop stores.
The first four figurines; A Pikachu, Eevee, Mew, and Magikarp debuted on February 27, 2017 (which just so happens to also be Pokémon Day). For a follow-up, the Pokémon Gallery Figures DX (Deluxe) line was introduced the very next year, again on the 27th. The Dragonite figurine is part of this DX line.
PGF are not the only ones releasing Pokémon figures, however.
Funko Inc., an American company that manufactures licensed pop culture collectibles, are best known for their licensed vinyl figurines. They, along with the Pokémon Company, have announced the latest additions to their Pokémon Pop line. First is a Charmander Pop with no exact release date given yet. Seeing as the Pop for the first of the original starter trio Bulbasaur released last month, once again on Pokémon Day, expect a late March release. Also, it does not take a genius to guess which Pokémon will headline the next wave of pocket monster inspired pops. Here is a hint: It will probably be a water-type who looks like a turtle.
Secondly, the March “A Day with Pikachu” Funko figure was also unveiled. For March, Rainy Day Pokémon shows an unhappy Pikachu caught in the rain. Dressed in a yellow raincoat, the yellow rodent Pokémon holds a Sunny Form Castform. Possibly wishing for weather like the normal-type he is accompanied by.
According to dedicated Pokémon website Serebii, the “A Day with Pikachu” figures will release monthly until January 2020. Here is a list of the Pikachu Funko figures on the way:
