The Pokémon Company International and The Wand Company have announced a new Die-Cast Poké Ball Replica Series launching throughout 2022, allowing Trainers to collect premium replicas of the Heal Ball, Friend Ball, Quick Ball and Cherish Ball.
Trainers in the US and UK can now preorder the first replica in the new series of 2022 Poké Ball Replicas, the Heal Ball, at Pokémon Center, the premier online destination for official Pokémon merchandise, and participating retailers in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Later in the year, US and UK Trainers will be able to purchase the Friend Ball, Quick Ball and Cherish Ball exclusively at Pokémon Center one month before the replicas are available at other participating retailers. In addition, Pokémon Center UK will also have the Master Ball available for the first time later this year.
“The incredible response to The Wand Company’s first series of stunning Poké Ball replicas inspired us to release another premium range, featuring iconic Poké Balls that have appeared throughout the Pokémon franchise,” said Cindy Ruppenthal, senior director of e-commerce at The Pokémon Company International. “As Trainers of all ages have a huge passion for collecting, we look forward to delivering new Poké Ball replicas as a one-month exclusive on Pokémon Center.”
“It’s a pleasure to continue our partnership with The Pokémon Company International in sharing more of these gorgeous Poké Ball replicas with fans,” said Chris Barnardo, CEO of The Wand Company. “Each replica is created with the utmost attention to detail and craftsmanship, and is sure to be a wonderful addition to any Pokémon collection.”
The latest lineup of 2022 Poké Ball Replicas comes on the heels of hugely popular replicas launched previously, including the iconic Poké Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, Dusk Ball and Premier Ball. Trainers who haven’t collected these replicas yet will be able to do so when they become available again this year at Pokémon Center in the US and UK, as well as other participating retailers. Every Die-Cast Poké Ball Replica produced by The Wand Company comes with motion-sensing and multicolored lights, a uniquely numbered presentation case and a stainless steel ring to display the product.
