Pokémon Canvas (ポケモンキャンバス) are a range of plush that were released in Japan by The Pokémon Company and are designed to resemble a drawing of that Pokémon. This plush line appears to have first come out in 2006, which saw the releases of non-Sinnoh Pokémon such as Eevee and Aipom and also the Sinnoh starters. Then in 2007, the other Sinnoh canvas plush were released.

In September 2009, to promote the release of HeartGold and SoulSilver, canvas plush of the Johto starters: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile were released. Then, in December 2009, a set of canvas Eeveelutions were released, during the Pokémon Center's Eevee Collection promotion. This also included a new re-designed Eevee canvas plush.

In January 2010, canvas plush of Pichu, Raichu and a re-released Pikachu were released. In June 2010 more were released. This set consists of: Vulpix, Growlithe, Lapras, Dragonite, Ampharos, Jirachi, Riolu, and Shaymin Land Forme.

General Appearance

Canvas plush are small sized plush (usually a little smaller than a Pokédoll) that all have a very soft pile. Their colour is often more pastel-like compared to other ranges of plush to give them a more "drawn" feel. Most of these plush also have brown coloured eyes where black is usually more commonly used. The hang tag that comes attached to the plush always shows a picture, to the left of the tag, of an artist and a Smeargle who are painting/drawing on a canvas together. To the right of the tag is a picture featuring a drawing of the actual plush.

  • Due to the overwhelming popularity of some canvas plush, combined with limited availability for some, the prices of the plush can be quite high in the collecting community or in auctions.
