Pokemon Center 2010 Shiny Raikou Pokedoll Series Plush Toy Lottery Prize Not Sold In Stores
Pokemon Center 2010 Shiny (different color) Raikou Pokedoll series plush toy. This plush toy was NOT FOR SALE at the Pokemon Center, toy stores, or anywhere. It was a lottery prize at the 2010 Pokemon Center lottery. Extremely rare!!! For one month there was a lottery at the Japan Pokemon Center in July, 2010. If you spent 2500yen (About $30), you were awarded one chance in the lottery. There is a lottery machine that drops out colored balls when you turn the crank. There are 400 balls in the machine. If you get a blue colored ball, you were able to choose 1 of the 3 pokedolls. There are only 2 blue balls in the entire set of 400, so your odds of winning were 2 in 400 (0.5%). So, not even 1% chance of winning. I spent $6000 at the Pokemon Center and finally won this pokedoll. I have heard there are only 250 sets of these made in all of Japan, but I think it is much lower. The single shiny pokedolls are selling for $300-450 and the sets of 3 pokedolls are selling for $1000-1400 in Japan. If you look at the tag, you will see it is a different color and says "Iro Chigai" in Japanese which means "different color". Check out live video of the All 3 shiny lottery Pokedolls or a comparison between the normal Raikou and Shiny Raikou on youtube. NOTE: The paper tag has a couple of very small creases in it.
See "Additional Images" for other pictures of the Pokedoll along with a picture comparing it to the normal colored Raikou (NOTE: The picture with both Raikou's is just for comparison. You will only receive the shiny Raikou, not both Raikous). Made of soft material (polyester).
PLEASE choose the EMS shipping option. I will not send it 1st class airmail as its too expensive and I dont want to take a chance it getting lost in the mail.
