The plush toys will be available at physical outlets around the world at a later date, but for now, the online store is the only place to get them. At the time of writing, none were in stock after going on sale last night (November 22). It is not clear if these will be restocked or not.

The Squishmallows were released days after the release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet last week (November 18). The release saw the arrival of the 1,000th Pokémon, Gholdengo, which is made of gold coins. In-game, his pre-evolve Gimmighoul requires 999 Gimmighoul coins that can be collected from the open world before it evolves into Gholdengo.

It’s not the only new Pokemon to join the series. Greavard, the haunted ghost-type dog, Bellibolt, the electric frog with oddly positioned eyes, and Wiglett, Diglett’s distant relative who lives on the beach, have all been added to the Pokédex, which now has 1,008 Pokémon.
