Pokémon Squishmallows: where to buy Pikachu, Gengar, Togepi

Pokémon Squishmallows are now available, and definitely adorable, but surprising no one, these plushies are sold out just about everywhere. And, anytime they come back in stock, it’s a matter of minutes until they’re sold out again. We’re doing our best to keep an eye on stock to help you bring one of these precious round-boys home.

Jazwares and the Pokémon Company have launched Squishmallows of Gengar, Pikachu, Snorlax, and Togepi, but more are coming later this year. Stay tuned for news on Piplup, Teddiursa, and Clefairy.

Where to buy Pikachu Squishmallows

Pikachu Squishmallows are tough to find. If you’re lucky, you might be able to get one at Best Buy, which recently held an in-store restock on April 21 for the 14-inch Pikachu at a reasonable $29.99 price. If that sells out — and you’re willing to pay a premium — online retailer Showcase has the 10-inch version of Pikachu available for $39.99. Just note that this is roughly double what you’d pay for a 10-inch Squishmallow. We don’t like to recommend price-surged products, but it might be worth it if you’re getting one as a gift.

Where to buy Gengar Squishmallows

Like Pikachu, listings exist for the grinning, ghastly pokémon, but some of them are charging more than the Squishmallow is supposed to cost. However, you might be able to find the 14-inch Gengar at Best Buy stores for $29.99.

Where to buy Snorlax and Togepi Squishmallows

Surprising nobody, Snorlax, and Togepi hit the market and sold out shortly thereafter. However, if you’re willing to wait until late April for your shipment to arrive, you can pre-order the 10-inch version of either one at Showcase for $39.99. Again, Showcase charges a premium for these rare items, but if you’re having issues finding them at your local brick-and-mortar store, paying an extra $20 may not be a terrible idea.

If you absolutely need to bring home today, you might be able to find some third-party listings on Walmart, or eBay, but these tend to fluctuate pretty wildly in terms of their pricing and availability. We don’t recommend going this route unless you run out of other options.

For anyone looking to put in some additional legwork, there are resources available that provide alerts for when these prized commodities get restocked. For that, we’d recommend following Wario64 on Twitter, who provides updates on restocks for high-demand items, like Squishmallows.

Alternatively, there are plenty of other oversized plush Pokémon currently in stock at Target and GameStop. While they aren’t official Squishmallow-branded products, they’re almost as cute.



Update (April 21): Best Buy has launched its restock of the 14-inch Gengar and Pikachu Squishmallows.
