Psyduck and Snubbull waddle their way to Build-A-Bear

Fashionably late but we’ll forgive them this one time

The Detective Pikachu movie is just around the corner. So far, we’ve taste-tested Mr. Mime slurpees at 7-Eleven, teared up at a heartwarming trailer set to Louis Armstrong, and are hoping to snag a limited-edition Detective Pikachu trading card during opening weekend. There’s no shortage of hype.

But perhaps the most important development of all: the option to build your very own Psyduck or Snubbull plush. Build-A-Bear Workshop continues to add its line of soft, cuddly Pokémon. Sure, you have your original starters like Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur — there’s even a Meowth. But it’s finally in this year of our lord 2019 that we can build a huggable pal who’s just as confused about life as we are.


Both the Psyduck and Snubbull plush will cost $32 each, while clothing and accessories are extra. Online-exclusive bundles will also be available for $65 and $55, respectively. If you know you want those clothes no matter what, the bundles include all the outfits in addition to a sound chip and an exclusive trading card. You’ll be able to place your orders for the bundles on April 26.


For a la carte options, Psyduck’s raincoat and rain hat cost an additional $13.50, but who’d want to pass up the opportunity to take their dazed and confused water buddy out in the wild? Or the movie theater? Heck, maybe even the water park.

If you’re into a more decadent look, Psyduck also has a Luxury Ball hoodie that emits tough but fashionably cultish vibes. Unfortunately, Snubbull only has one outfit, but it’s ... a lot. It harnesses the power of two outfits, so it counts.

Psyduck and Snubbull will be available at Build-A-Bear Workshops in North America, Canada, and the U.K. starting May 3.
