Earlier in November 2022, the Pokemon Center teased that the Pikachu and Gengar Squishmallow plush toys would be available soon. And now we do know the price and that the release date is November 22, 2022. Both of these Pokemon Squishmallows are live on their site. The price for both Gengar and Pikachu Squishmallow is $29.99 each.
The Pokémon Squishmallow collaboration is on sale in the US as of Tuesday. But sadly, by the time you are reading this, both the Squishmallows have sold out on the Pokemon Center website.
The only thing better than Squishmallows… is more Squishmallows.
Pikachu and Gengar Squishmallows are now available at the #PokemonCenter – with more to come in 2023!

Will there be any new Pokemon Squishmallows?
Besides Pikachu and Gengar being available for now, the site revealed that Snorlax will be purchasable next year in a second series.
- A tweet from the official Pokemon Twitter page confirmed that more squishmallows would be dropping sometime in 2023. Meaning more fan-favorite Pokemon will come in hand in the form of Squishmallow.
- There are a lot of potential options for the future of Pokémon Squishmallows. Considering that most Pokémon can squeeze into the typical shape of the other Squishmallows that are available.
Why is it a Gengar squishmallow and not any other pokemon?
Pikachu‘s presence in squishmallow is totally understandable. As it is considered to be the main mascot for the Pokémon franchise and is beloved all over the world. But why Gengar?
- Well, the presence of Gengar couldn’t be more surprising, as it’s one of the ever-popular original 151 Pokémon. The most probable explanation for Gengar is that Gengar is the U.S.’ most popular Pokémon.
- Beating the likes of Pikachu, Charizard, and Lucario. Gengar was also recently on Ash’s championship team in the Pokémon anime, as Ash defeated Leon in an epic battle.
The attention is detail is amazing on both the soft toys, specifically Gengar’s. The spike on its back looks perfect what’s more, the mark smile simply makes this devilish Ghost-type Pokémon look even cuter.
While nothing is permanent, the demand to restock the Pikachu and Gengar squishmallows is high enough that it would be a disgrace not to.
The Pokémon Company and Jazwares first teased the new toys at San Diego Comic-Con. And this collaboration was announced back in July, giving the fans of the franchise something new and adorable to display and collect.
