Is there anything that can warm a cold, cynical heart more than cheap Pokemon plush deals? The answer is no (or it should be, at least) especially when those deals involve the cutest soft toys with winter gear (opens in new tab) to keep them cosy throughout the holiday season. D'awww, just look at Charmander's little bobble hat! I can't cope. If you're in the UK, Nintendo themselves are offering an extra 20% off Pokemon plushes (opens in new tab) if you use the code 'PIKACHU'.
But let's talk about those holiday-themed Pokemon first. Hot off their cheap Funko deals yesterday, Walmart are offering a range of 'Wicked Cool Pokemon Holiday Plushes' (yes, we're baffled by the name as well) for a far-too-affordable-please-take-my-wallet-away-from-me $14.99 each. There are four different versions, too. You can pick up a Bulbasaur wearing an elf hat at a jaunty angle, Charmander in the aforementioned bobble hat, Squirtle with matching blue ear muffs, and Pikachu in a very fetching Santa hat. All of them look rather pleased with themselves, probably because they look dapper as hell and they know it. They're roughly 8" tall and super huggable, but they're also limited edition so won't hang around for long. Either way, they're cheap Pokemon plush deals. What more could you want?
As for the UK offers, you can get the normal Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Pikachu with accompanying Poke Balls for a fair amount less than normal - they'll only set you back between £14.39-£18.39, making them ideal as presents for a loved one or yourself this Christmas. Just remember, you need to use the code PIKACHU at checkout.
