Build-A-Bear Adds New Pokémon to its Roster

Flareon, Jolteon and Vaporeon will make their debut at Build-A-Bear in 2020.

Build-A-Bear is adding more Pokémon to its roster. In addition to Eevee, her evolutions will soon become available throughout 2020.

Flareon will make her debut in January 2020, followed by Jolteon in summer 2020 and finally, Vaporeon, which will become available in late summer 2020.

Pokémon and Build-A-Bear have a partnership that dates back to 2015, with other Pokémon having already made their debut in Build-A-Bear. In addition to Eevee, there have been iterations of Pikachu, Snorlax, Squirtle, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Psyduck, Meowth, Vulpix, Alolan Vulpix, Jigglypuff, Snubbill, Piplup and Pichu.

In its history, Build-A-Bear has released four Pokémon plush per year, on average, which usually comes in two options: a regular plush that can be bought in-store, and an online bundle with a voice box and outfits.

The new Flareon plush has already become available in North America on the Build-A-Bear website. Currently, only the $64 bundle is available. The plush alone retails for $32.

"Warm up this winter with Flareon! This Fire Type Pokémon has extra-large ears, a big bushy tail, and fluffy fur to help reduce body heat and stay cool," the official production description reads. "Flareon comes with an exclusive Fire Type Cape, Poké Ball Sleeper and 5-in-1 sound chip included. Add Flareon to your Pokémon lineup today!"

No official announcements were made about price or availability for the coming Pokémon plushes.
